Why is pain in your elbow called tennis elbow even if you don’t play tennis? Or golfers elbow if you’ve never held a golf club? Or your kid’s elbow pain called Little League Elbow even if they never played baseball or softball? Whatever it’s called, elbow pain can disrupt your lifestyle. It can make drinking your morning coffee painful. It can make you wait for someone else to open a door for you out of fear of feeling the pain. And it can make you not pick up your kids or grandchildren because the pain could make you drop them.

Working With BeneFIT
It starts at your detailed evaluation comprised of a thorough past medical history followed by elbow measurements to determine various things like range of motion, strength, and special tests devised to differentiate your physical therapy diagnosis. Additionally, we will examine the factors that contributed to any imbalances you originally demonstrated that might have led to your injury. Armed with this information we’ll make the appropriate adjustments to your elbow physical therapy program as you progress through your elbow rehabilitation. We focus on not just getting you back to where you were, but also to providing the tools necessary to correct your muscle imbalances, prevent re-injury, improve your functional mobility, and have the confidence to be you again!
