The elbow…. a seemingly simple joint but can cause quite a few problems!  Why?   Because a lot of muscles attach to it, and they do so at the same spot!  This means this spot can often become overloaded and a source of pain.  Common problems that occur at the elbow itself include extensor tendinopathy (tennis elbow) and flexotendinopathy (golfers elbow).  Let’s not forget that the elbow can also hurt because there is something going on at your upper back, neck or shoulder.  This is why we look at your whole body no matter what you come in for.
