Common Elbow Conditions We Treat Include:

The Most Common Causes

  1. Using the same muscles repeatedly without giving them enough time to recover or perform mobility exercises can lead to injury.
  2. Impaired Mechanics: Weakness and muscle imbalance; joint stiffness that limits the range of motion; less flexible muscles.
  3. Chronic compensatory mechanisms include the avoidance of activity in some muscle groups and the overuse of other tissues due to past injuries or the fear of future injuries.

Driven Golf Performance & Sports Physical Therapy Approach

  1. The pain cycle can be broken by increasing tissue mobility, educating patients, and using manual therapy.
  2. Enhance the area’s joint, muscle, and nerve mechanics while performing daily activities and exercise- and sport-specific activities.
  3. Load the tissue to improve strength, power, and endurance to ensure that the tissues are ready for all desired demands without being concerned about reinjury.

Treatments for the Elbow

Things to Know and Understand

  1. Tissues Recover. The body can heal itself, but our system occasionally becomes stuck in the inflammatory stage of tissue repair and requires assistance to progress to recovery.
  2. MRI and x-ray imaging results frequently correlate poorly with the actual cause of pain. Imaging may reveal tissue damage despite no pain or functional impairment. Additionally, pain may exist despite no prominent findings on imaging; this is typically the result of excessive nervous tissue sensitivity.
  3. Although it is not the intended outcome, soreness after exercise does not always cause alarm. True strength gains necessitate a system overload that results in micro damage. That tissue grows back stronger and thicker than it did the first time. The soreness should be used as a gauge when determining whether the tissue is ready to handle more load. If the tissue is not yet ready, training intensity should be reduced until it is.
  4. It is almost always possible to return to previous or desired activities with the help of sound instruction, good mechanics, and progressive tissue loading.

I was suffering from 6 months of off and on excruciating nerve pain in my lower back, right side. After just 2 sessions, the pain was gone. Dr. Joe actually chose the winning exercise in our first session. He also gave me doable exercises for core strengthening to help with general back ache. I highly recommend him.

My son had an elbow fracture from a Baseball injury and we completed all our physical therapy with Joe. He was amazing. His expertise in sports medicine rehab was exponential. His approach to his patient care is personal and he is fully invested on getting the best outcome for the present and future of the Athlete. We highly recommend them for any rehab, sports performance needs.
