Chiropractic Care in Mission Valley, San Diego for Elbow Pain

We Help Elbow Pain
In the elbow joint there are three bones involved – the humerus (or upper arm bone), and the radius and ulna (which make up the forearm or lower arm). Together, they allow us to move the joint in two different ways – flexing and extending (like doing bicep curls), and pronation/supination (which is when you turn arm from palm facing down to palm facing up, or vice-versa).
The complexity of bones, muscles, and ligaments meeting at this joint coupled with its range of motion, not to mention its range of everyday movements, can sometimes cause parts of this joint to become irritated or inflamed – the two most common sources of elbow pain.
The causes for that irritation and inflammation are most often some combination of overexertion and overuse, though infection, genetics, and degenerative diseases can always play a role as well.
