Elbow Joint Pain and Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow Affects Millions But It Can Be Beaten

Tennis is a physical sport. Running, jumping, swinging, and sometimes diving on the hard court; like any sport, there are many ways that tennis players can incur an injury.

There are noninvasive medical options that can address the pain of this condition as well. Anti-inflammatory drugs are used to combat both pain and inflammation. If a regimen of anti-inflammatory drugs is not successful, cortisone injections are an option that has proven successful for some patients.

While tennis elbow, known medically as lateral epicondylitis, is not limited to tennis players, it is estimated that one-third of all tennis players will experience the condition at some point in their lives. Anyone who engages in lifting at the elbow, or repetitive movements of the elbow and wrist, is likely to be susceptible to this condition, so naturally, tennis players are at high risk.

Elbow Pain

So how do you know you have tennis elbow and not some other painful condition? Individuals with this ailment typically feel pain on the outside of their elbow, especially when grabbing an object and cocking back the wrist. The pain is generally more severe when lifting something – although pain while resting should be expected – and it is often described as a pain that radiates down the forearm. The pain from tennis elbow generally starts gradually, although it has been known to have a sudden onset as well.

Sadly, if the aforementioned treatment options are not successful then surgery may be the only road to relief. The good news is that surgery has a very high rate of success, and it is only required in a small percentage of patients.

However, injections are not always successful and if relief does not come quickly then you are likely not going to be served by continued injections. However, medication is not the only avenue that one can explore when trying to alleviate pain and discomfort in the elbow region. Use of an elbow brace can reduce the strain placed on the elbow during the tennis stroke.

The cause of pain from this condition is not a medical certainty, although it is believed that it is caused by small tears of the tendons attaching the forearm muscles to the bone at the elbow joint. It is the muscles of the forearm that are used to cock the wrist back – extensor carpi radialis brevis – that are the suspected culprits in this condition.

If you believe that you are suffering from tennis elbow you should consult with your physician immediately. Treatment for this condition is typically noninvasive, and over 90% of patients are successfully treated without surgery. Tennis players can often address the problem through some subtle changes in their equipment and technique.

A good first step is to make sure that you are using a racket with a properly sized grip. Another option is to reduce the tension on your racket strings. That reduction in string tension will soften the impact of the ball, and reduce twisting of the forearm during off-center hits. Lastly, changing your actual tennis stroke can help reduce the negative impacts on your elbow as well. Players who learn to swing without leading the racket with their elbow in a flexed position can often alleviate much of the condition and reduce the likelihood of reoccurrence.

Joint Pain Relief

Pain from Arthritis and Other Causes Affects Millions of Lives

According to the Centers for Disease Control National Center for Health Statistics, “One in four U.S. adults say they suffered a day-long bout of pain in the past month, and 1 in 10 say the pain lasted a year or more.” As adults get older, the numbers increase. According to the NCHS report, “One-fifth of adults 65 years and older said they had experienced pain in the past month that persisted for more than 24 hours,” and “Almost three-fifths of adults 65 and older with pain said it had lasted for 1-year or more.”

These alarming statistics point to an enormous amount of suffering and loss of productivity and quality of life among Americans. After all, when a person is in a lot of pain, they can’t work, enjoy their families, or engage in recreational activities. Acute pain – such as that experienced as a result of an injury – can lead to reliance on prescription drugs, while chronic pain – like that with health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or other joint pain – can lead to depression.

Treatments for Pain

When it comes to arthritis treatment and other types of pain relief, however most people first turn to medications. One major class of drugs is known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, like aspirin or ibuprofen. Unfortunately, many of those suffering from joint pain or muscular pain develop stomach problems from these medications or find that they interact with other medications and are an inappropriate treatment. For those with rheumatoid arthritis, narcotics or corticosteroids are often used in the treatment of joint pain, although sometimes with serious side effects.

According to the National Pain Foundation, treatments for pain fall into five categories: injection and surgery, psychological approaches, physical therapy, alternative or complementary, and medications. Arthritis pain can be relieved by injections of steroids or medications that lubricate the joints, as well as by joint replacement surgery. Psychological approaches often include relaxation techniques and counseling. Physical therapy can consist of massage, exercise, and apply heat to provide arthritis pain relief. Complementary therapies can include everything from acupuncture and hypnosis to biofeedback and dietary supplements.

Topical Creams

A topical cream can help people with a wide variety of medical conditions, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and bursitis. It can also help prevent workout-related injuries and cramping.

One of the most effective pain treatments – especially for arthritis pain relief – is a topical cream that penetrates through the sub-epidermal level of the skin. By blocking out pain transmitters and starting localized healing, a topical cream can convey all of the benefits of NSAIDs without the side effects. Available without a prescription, certain creams have been thoroughly studied by medical researchers and have been reported to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Chronic pain has a deleterious effect on the health and well-being of millions of Americans. Finding a means of lessening or alleviating that pain is a relief, in every sense of the word.

Joint Pain Medication

Joint Pain Products

Joint pain is the most common symptom of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, both of which are chronic diseases that can affect the person afflicted over period. Arthritis can not be cured, but the symptoms can be treated through a variety of products and methods. Sports-related activities as well as falls and other trauma can injure the cartilage within a joint and, if it is not provided sufficient time to heal, chronic pain and persistent disability can follow. Additionally, damage to the bone surface can start a biological process that results in joint degeneration. This, in turn, often leads to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. This is a brief overview of some of the products currently available, through both prescription and over-the-counter, to treat the symptoms of arthritis, specifically joint pain.

Acetaminophen

Acetaminophen is a pain reliever but does not reduce swelling, which is a common symptom associated with some types of arthritis, specifically rheumatoid arthritis. As such acetaminophen, the best known of which is Tylenol, may be effective for people afflicted with osteoarthritis which often have very little inflammation. Also, acetaminophen does not cause stomach irritation and is less likely than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), described later, to cause long-term side effects. Research has shown that acetaminophen relieves pain as effectively as NSAIDs for many patients with osteoarthritis. People with liver disease, people who drink alcohol heavily, and those taking blood – thinning medicines or NSAIDs should use acetaminophen with caution.

Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is a pain reliever that combines anti-inflammatory properties with pain relief. People who have rheumatoid arthritis have pain caused by inflammation and often benefit from aspirin or ibuprofen, the best known of which are Motrin and Advil. Unfortunately, ibuprofen products and aspirin typically cause some stomach discomfort if taken without food and have been linked to ulcers with long-term use.


What Causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Scientists are studying risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing a rheumatic disease. Some of these factors have been identified. For example, in osteoarthritis, inherited cartilage weakness or excessive stress on the joint from repeated injury may play a role. In rheumatoid arthritis, the combination of genetic factors that determine susceptibility and environmental triggers are believed to be important.

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).

This class of drugs includes aspirin and ibuprofen as well as Vioxx (rofecoxib), Celebrex (celecoxib), and Bextra (valdecoxib), which are classified as COX-2 inhibitors. Aspirin and ibuprofen are used to reduce pain and inflammation, as noted above, and may be used for both short-term and long-term relief in people with osteoarthritis but are more commonly used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The other drugs under NSAIDs are COX-2 inhibitors that work by blocking an enzyme known to cause an inflammatory response. COX-2 inhibitors had been approved for short-term use in the treatment of pain, and for longer-term use to treat the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Side effects associated with NSAIDs include stomach irritation, negative impact on kidney functions, and are often associated with severe gastrointestinal problems, including ulcers, bleeding, and perforation of the stomach or intestine. As such, people over age 65 and those with any history of ulcers or gastrointestinal bleeding should use NSAIDs with caution. As with most medications, the longer a person uses NSAIDs, the more likely he or she is to have side effects. Also, because of the way NSAIDs alter the way the body uses or eliminates other drugs, many other drugs cannot be taken when a patient is being treated with NSAIDs. It is essential to check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before you take NSAIDs in addition to other medications.

The flexibility of joints and bones is something that holds a prominent role in ensuring that the daily life activities of an individual will take place smoothly. But, are there ways to improve the flexibility and mobility of the bones in a natural manner? Many old people have this question, and the good news to them is that it is possible to improve bone health, joint mobility and flexibility with a natural herbal remedy called as Freeflex capsules.
