Arm and Elbow Pain

Arm and Elbow Pain

Pain in the arm and specifically around the elbow tendons is common in people who work in many occupations, such as carpenters, builders, nurses and beauty therapists. Many sports that involve repetitive movements of the arm and elbow can also provoke a pain response: “golfer’s elbow” and “tennis elbow” can occur while playing tennis and golf. Any repetitive motion through work, sport or daily life can bring on this pain. On some occasions, pain at the elbow and forearm might be from a more complex cause so it is vital to be extensively assessed to ensure correct diagnosis and a successful treatment plan.

Common causes include:

  • repetitive strain injury (tendon/muscle)
  • fracture or poor recovery from fracture
  • muscle strains and joint sprains
  • referred pain from the shoulder/neck
  • osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis

Symptoms can include:

  • weakness with inability to lift or grip as normal
  • pain that can be sharp or in the form of an ache
  • reduced range of movement at the elbow or wrist joint
  • swollen in places
  • pain in the arm referred from both the neck and shoulder


Treatment for arm and elbow pain will vary depending on diagnosis. The physiotherapist will use a range of manual therapy techniques for pain relief such as dry needling, soft tissue massage and joint mobilisation. The treatment program will include strengthening and mobilising exercises to achieve excellent long-term results. In most cases, management will include adjusting or modifying the activities which aggravate the problem.

Client Testimonials

Zoe Rowell

I always have a wonderful experience when visiting! The reception staff are always super-helpful and accommodating and I am always greeted with a smile! The physiotherapist I see gives stretches and strengthening exercises to complete between visits if follow-up appointments are needed! Thanks for your awesome work!

Frank Mount Evelyn

I have been going to this clinic for over 3 years after suffering near-fatal injuries from a car accident. The Physiotherapists who have been treating me have all been very caring, gentle and courteous whilst ensuring all of my needs were met. There was never an issue that they did not overcome with either treatment or the supply of ergonomic devices. My treatment is coming to an end as I now progress onto self-managing my health and wellbeing with regular sessions at the local gym, which they also organised. The administration staff are fantastic people who also treated me with the utmost respect and assistance. Thanks, Team!!!

Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I was referred to Jade, whom I have no hesitation in recommending. She has been able to help through planning and careful management, meaning that frequent appointments were not required. My health was in her best interest. Truly a great service.
