    I have known Gail Craig for over three years now and I continue to put my care in her hands for the following reasons. She is very knowledgeable about the whole body and how it gets injured and starts to heal. She doesn’t just look at one part of your body, she looks at the balance of your body. I know that she is providing good information because it makes sense to me as a nurse.

Elbow Injuries

Elbow Pain & Injury Treatment

Elbow pain and injury respond favourably to physiotherapy intervention when early treatment is sought.

An accurate diagnosis is vital to the correct management of your elbow pain. It can be caused by local muscle, tendon or joint injury. Alternatively, elbow pain can be referred from your neck joints. It’s similar to sciatica of the upper limb.

Please do not delay in consulting your physiotherapist if you experience elbow pain. Many elbow conditions may take many months to heal when symptoms are neglected or the diagnosis is incorrect.

Common Elbow Injuries:

  • Tennis elbow

    Tennis Elbow or Lateral Epicondylitis is a condition that causes pain on the outer side of your elbow, where the tendons of your forearm muscles are attached to the bone. In more severe cases, the pain may even spread to your forearm and wrist. A tennis elbow is not only limited to tennis players, but occurs also in any other activity which involves clenching the fingers. The cause is commonly overuse and repetitive movements. In the acute stage, physiotherapy can help to reduce the pain and inflammation. Once the condition improves, exercise therapy will be added, optimizing the strength and restoring optimal biomechanics. The goal is also to prevent recurrent elbow problems.

    PhysioActive is one of the very few clinics in Singapore who can offer you shockwave therapy. This is one of the most effective and fastest ways of treating this condition.

  • Golfer’s elbow

    Golfer’s elbow or medial epicondylitis is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, where the tendons of your forearm muscles are attached to the bony bump. In more severe cases the pain may even spread into your forearm and wrist. A golfer’s elbow is not only limited to golfers, but occurs also in any other activity which involves the wrist or clenching the fingers. The cause is commonly overuse and repetitive movements. In the acute painful stage physiotherapy helps reducing the pain and inflammation. Once the condition improves exercise therapy will be added optimizing the strength and restoring optimal biomechanics with the goal to prevent recurrent elbow problems.

  • Forearm fracture

    Forearm fracture is very common among all different age groups and is in most cases due to falls. Patients usually need to wear a cast for 6 weeks and can start rehabilitation right afterwards. The rehabilitation takes about 6-8 weeks depending on the complexity of the fracture. After successful completion of the rehabilitation the patient will have regained full function of the arm without any restrictions in daily life and sport.
