Important Information and questions

There are a great number of reasons why you might be experiencing upper extremity pains. In a lower place, you can find a list of a few common conditions which might be a cause of your pain.


Arthritis can appear in different kinds. Although, it is usually caused from repetitive movements or an injury which can impact the cartilage in the joints of elbow, wrist and hand. Physical therapy can help you to improve your joint motion, lessen inflammation, as well as strengthen the surrounding supportive muscles.

Cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS).

If the right pressure will not be put on the cubital tunnel and the surrounding nerves, as a result it might cause pain, numbness and tingling, in the main to the ring and pinky fingers.

Cubital tunnel syndrome is a form of nerve compression damage. This kind of damage can lead to elbow, wrist and hand pain. 

Strains or sprains.

As a result of a strain or sprain to your elbow, wrist or hand you might experience pain. A strain is a form of a muscle or tendon injury, while on the other hand a sprain refers mainly to ligaments, which are connected bone to bone. 

This kind of injury can occur from a quick overstretching of your ligaments or tendons. 

Elbow bursitis.

At the end of your elbow, you can find a fluid-filled sac which is called “bursa”. This fluid serves as a cushion to your elbow bone or otherwise, the so-called “ulna”. When your bursa is abbreviated, due to an injury or repetitive motion, then it might lead to pain or swelling. This is a common condition for students and athletes.

Golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow.

One as well as the other, are a result of repetitive injuries and can be ascribed to a variety of tasks, not just the sports that they are named after. 

Tennis elbow is the pain felt on the lateral or on the outside aspect of the elbow. On the other hand, golfer’s elbow refers to the medial or inside aspect of the elbow pain. 

Physical therapy is the right solution and treatment way for both of these conditions. This is, for the reason that it restores the underlying joint and soft tissue limitations which cause strain to the tendons and at the same time, reduce the inflammation in a rapid manner.

If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned in an upper place, which are caused by those conditions, you must contact the FisioCenter as soon as possible, and book an appointment.

There are cases in which a single session is capable of leading to a permanent remission of symptoms. Usually, however, a larger number of sessions is necessary for a permanent therapeutic effect.
The number of visits usually depends on the nature and duration of the condition. In less chronic problems, a short treatment (a few days to weeks) is usually enough. For more chronic conditions, 1-2 sessions a week for several months are often necessary to achieve stability.

The benefits of physical therapy are multiple and important. Physical therapy treats pain and restores movement with natural means without the risk of side effects and with the appropriate therapeutic shape, makes total rehabilitation of the problem, in most conditions.
