Shoulder, elbow and wrist pain can affect those wielding a power tool or keyboard just as easily as those more at home clutching a racquet or a climbing wall. From ‘frozen shoulder’ – where there is a progressive tightening of the capsule surrounding the joint resulting in severe pain and a progressive loss of movement – to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and repetitive strain injury, there are many conditions that affect this area. This type of pain can also be caused by degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis.
Another common injury of this area is ‘Tennis Elbow.’ Caused by a tear or inflammation in the tendons on the outside of the elbow, lateral epicondylitis – to give it its proper name – is often caused by repetitive or strenuous use of the arm. Patients often experience pain while performing gripping or twisting movements, such as turning a door handle or shaking hands. Whether you’re experiencing pain serving an ace or your customers, we can help get you back to your best.
