After treatment for an elbow sprain or strain, specialists at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center offer support programs designed to help you heal and prevent future injury. These may include sports performance evaluations and ergonomic techniques.
Your doctor determines when you are healthy enough to return to physical activity that requires the use of the affected elbow.
Our physical and occupational therapists recommend steps you can take to ease back into sports and exercise. These include assessing and refining your movements, such as golf or tennis swings. Therapists at NYU Langone’s Sports Performance Center use the newest and most advanced equipment. Our experts can teach you how to protect your elbow during sports, strengthen the muscles of the arm to support the elbow, and prevent injury.
Our occupational therapists can teach you ergonomic techniques to help prevent injury from overuse of tendons, muscles, and ligaments in the arms that affect the elbow while at work. These may include adjusting the angle of a computer keyboard or the height of a chair to prevent a sprain or strain.
Our specialists can even visit your workplace to make ergonomic adjustments and recommendations.
