The elbow loves to fly under the radar. It rolls along doing it's thing - a bit of flexion and extension to bring tasty morsels and beverages to our lips. A bit of pronation-supination pouring steaming hot water into your tea cup. Happily doing it's thing. Until it's not. You can't bring that crunchy apple or cool drink up to your mouth because your elbow is stiff. Doing your teeth and gardening hurts. It's hit your radar.
The elbow is a sadly neglected area, both in the brain, in our somatosensory representation of the elbow, and also in our musculoskeletal training. I remember thinking early on in my career "I hope this tennis elbow patient doesn't ask me too many more questions, because I'm either going to have to make something up, or quickly disappear to look up some info".
It's time to turn it around, freshen up the area of our brain that looks after the elbow, and master your assessment, diagnosis and treatment of elbow pain. We have a module for you to give you all the help you need with elbow pain, kicking off with Part 1 - Elbow anatomy, diagnosis & clinical reasoning.
In this webinar with Nick Kendrick, you will explore the lateral, medial, anterior and posterior sides of the elbow, including:
Lateral elbow pain If we had to pick a side of the elbow we're generally most comfortable with, this one wins hands down. Is there more to it than a casual observer may suspect? Let's find out.....
Common causes of lateral elbow pain
Method of injury
Muscles, nerves and ligaments that can be involved
Lateral elbow tendinopathy
Other common sources of lateral elbow pain, including:
Medial elbow pain
Golfers elbow - wrist flexor/pronator tendinopathy
MCL sprain - common history and how to objectively assess this area
Median nerve involvement
Ulnar nerve irritation
Avulsion fracture of the medial epicondyle
Posterior elbow pain
Olecranon stress fracture
Anterior elbow pain
Distal biceps tendinopathy
You will also discover other causes of elbow pain not to be missed, including dislocation and malignancy.
Light up the elbow section of your brain and master the assessment, diagnosis and clinical reasoning of elbow pain with Part 1 in this elbow series now.
Part 2 will take you through practical video demonstrations of assessment tests you can perform with your elbow pain patients to help further improve your diagnostic skills. You then get to dive headlong into treatment you can use in Part 3, and put it all together with case studies in Part 4.
