Are you suffering from any of the following symptoms which are often linked to elbow pain?
- Pain or ache
- Restricted movement
- Tingling (paraesthesia)
The elbow joins the upper and lower arm allowing it to bend and providing essential function. Many of the large muscles controlling the wrist and finger function originate from the bony prominences of the elbow. Due to the frequency of use and the complexity of control required by these muscles, overuse injuries are common.
Conditions most commonly & successfully treated
- Medial Epicondylitis (golfers elbow) - Pain at the inside (medial) aspect of the elbow and around its bony prominence
- Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) - Pain at the outside (lateral) aspect of the elbow and around its bony prominence
- Olecranon Bursitis - Inflammation of the bursa (protective fluid filled sac) which lies over the bony prominence at the back of the elbow
- Sprain & strain injury - Stretch or tear of a ligament resulting in pain and dysfunction
- Ulnar Nerve Entrapment - Irritation or compression of the "funny bone" nerve resulting in numbness and tingling of the little finger and ring finger

An 11.7-minute trip to the GP costs the NHS at least £45; a visit to A & E £80.55, prescriptions cost an average of £41.35 and an outpatient appointment an average of £108 according to government data. By comparison, our fee for the first consultation including treatment is £52 (60 mins) which compares to the fee of going to the dentist for a private first consultation £53 with no treatment included! Not bad really!
