Elbow pain and problems are not restricted to one medical condition. Different conditions manifest through elbow pain and other related symptoms. Most cases of elbow pain will improve on their own or with simple self-help treatments but in serious cases, you should visit your doctor.
Soft tissues like tendons that have been strained or irritated can cause elbow pain. The pain can vary from having trouble opening the door to just bending your elbow. If you engage in repetitive motion labor or are an athlete, wear and tear injuries are to be expected. The majority of elbow discomfort is brought on by overuse, such as from exercises that focus primarily on your elbows, and it occasionally results from arthritis.
Dislocation or fracture of the elbow
Ligament strains and sprains
Some of the circumstances that may contribute to elbow injuries include:
A lack of forearm muscular strength or flexibility
Insufficient shoulder muscle strength
Instability of the elbow joint
An improper technique or gear when playing sports, notably tennis and golf, which causes the elbow joint to be overly stressed
Repeated movements of the arms and hands
Continuously heavy load on the muscles and joints
Neck symptoms or nerve irritation
Other causes of elbow pain include:
Tennis elbow & golfer’s elbow

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) for conditions like tendonitis, which involves:
Soft-tissue stretching (fascial release).
Localized isometric contraction-relaxation (muscle energy).
Positional or facilitative relaxation (counter strain and balanced ligamentous tension).
Gentle techniques to balance motion in the skull (cranial osteopathy).
IV infusion therapies involve a combination of vitamins, minerals, and nutrition, which help boost the immune system and lessen pain and inflammation.
Physical rehabilitation in cases that need it, such as fracture, subluxation, or complete dislocation.
