Our Approach To Elbow Sprains & Strains

What Sets Us Apart

Orthopaedic physicians at NYU Langone’s Center for Musculoskeletal Care specialize in diagnosing elbow sprains and strains, which may cause pain and difficulty in extending or bending the arm.

Overuse of the ligaments, muscles, or tendons in or near the elbow is frequently the cause of a sprain or strain, though these injuries can also occur suddenly, as a result of an accident or a fall. People may develop elbow sprains and strains while playing sports or at work.

Our physical and occupational therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation ensure that you regain the use of your elbow and restore range of motion as quickly as possible.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for people with elbow sprains and strains may include rest, ice, compression, pain medications, injections, or physical and occupational therapy.
