Canada Golfers Elbow Patient travels from Canada to Florida in search of a solution https://youtu.be/YCLyr4mFybk In Canada, our patient faced a frustrating reality: a lengthy waiting list for a procedure to address his debilitating golfers elbow. The prospect of waiting for years for relief was daunting, especially considering that the initial treatment plan involved a more invasive open procedure. In his quest for a faster and less invasive solution, our patient turned to the vast resources available online. It was during this search that he discovered the expertise of Dr. Badia, an orthopedic specialist renowned for his innovative approach to elbow conditions.   Golfers Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) Golfers elbow, known medically as medial epicondylitis, is an orthopedic condition that affects the inner side of the elbow. This condition is not exclusive to golfers but can impact anyone who engages in repetitive hand and wrist movements, such as gripping, flexing, or swinging motions. Key characteristics of golfers elbow include: Location of Pain: The primary symptom is pain and tenderness around the medial epicondyle, a bony prominence on the inner side of the elbow. This is where the forearm muscles attach to the bone. Pain Intensity: The pain may range from mild to severe and can extend down the forearm. It’s typically aggravated by activities that involve gripping, twisting, or flexing the wrist, such as swinging a golf club, hence the name. Who’s Affected: While it’s called “golfers elbow,” this condition doesn’t discriminate based on your sport or lack thereof. Tenex procedure for golfers elbow Tenex Testimonials

UCL Tear: Baseball player finds relief after a year of elbow pain

Resolving Elbow Pain in a Baseball Player Baseball player finds relief after a year of elbow pain with an injection For athletes, elbow pain can be a game-changer. A passionate baseball player, Ben’s struggles began during intense pitching sessions, affecting both games and practices. After a year of enduring the discomfort, he took a pivotal step – an MRI. The MRI revealed mild thickening of his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), a critical part of elbow stability during throws. Determined to regain his form, he embraced a cutting-edge solution: Orthobiologics. This innovative approach aimed to boost UCL healing. In just weeks, Ben was back on the field, making a remarkable comeback. His triumphant return was a testament to the power of modern orthopedics. It showcased how innovative interventions, like orthobiologic ( Injection of growth factors) can help athletes recover and excel. His journey inspires athletes facing similar challenges. If you’re grappling with elbow pain or sports-related injuries, seek timely medical evaluation. Don’t let pain sideline your passion. With the right approach, you can return to the game stronger than ever. Learn more about orthobiologics Image credit Elbow Testimonials

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

What is it? Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. There is a bump of bone on the inner portion of the elbow (medial epicondyle) under which the ulnar nerve passes. This site is commonly called the “funny bone”. At this site, the ulnar nerve lies directly next to the bone and is susceptible to pressure. When the pressure on the nerve becomes great enough to disturb the way the nerve works, then numbness, tingling, and pain may be felt in the elbow, forearm, hand, and/or fingers. Symptoms Pain  Numbness Tingling The numbness or tingling most often occurs in the ring and small fingers. The symptoms are usually felt when there is pressure on the ulnar nerve, such as when sitting with the elbow on an arm rest, or with repetitive elbow bending and straightening. Often symptoms will be felt when the elbow is held in a bent position for a period of time, such as when holding the phone, or while sleeping. Some patients may notice weakness while pinching, occasional clumsiness, and/or a tendency to drop things. In severe cases, sensation may be lost and the muscles in the hand may lose bulk and strength. Diagnosis yet misunderstood medical condition The diagnosis of cubital tunnel syndrome can be made based on simple clinical tests and patient symptoms, and is confirmed by a detailed nerve conduction study. This study measures the velocity and the latency of the nerve impulses across the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Nonsurgical Treatment yet misunderstood medical condition Symptoms may sometimes be relived without surgery, particularly if the nerve conduction study shows that the pressure on the nerve is minimal. Changing the patterns of elbow use may significantly reduce the pressure on the nerve. Avoiding putting your elbow on hard surfaces may help, or wearing an elbow pad over the ulnar nerve may help. Keeping the elbow straight at night with a splint may also help. https://youtu.be/59mV41lG9J4 Surgical Treatment yet misunderstood medical condition When symptoms are severe or do not improve with conservative treatment, surgery may be needed to relieve the pressure on the nerve. Many surgeons will recommend shifting the nerve to the front of the elbow, which relieves pressure and tension on the nerve. Some surgeons may recommend trimming the bony bump on the inside of the elbow (medial epicondyle). At Badia Hand to Shoulder Center, a newer endoscopic method is used, which does not require a large incision or lengthy recover time. A small incision is made at the inside of the elbow, and an endoscope, which is a tiny camera, is inserted. This allows the surgeon to see the nerve and make a division over the nerve. This reduces the compression over the ulnar nerve that had been causing the symptoms. More Articles:
