Spring into Action: Don't Let Elbow Injuries Hold You Back

As we look forward to the warmer weather and outdoor activities that come with it, we must also be mindful of potential injuries that can occur. One area that is particularly susceptible to injury is the elbow. Whether you are an athlete, a weekend warrior, or simply engaging in everyday activities, elbow injuries can happen more often than you might think.

At Atlantic Medical Imaging, we understand the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of elbow injuries. That's why we encourage anyone experiencing elbow pain or discomfort to meet with their healthcare provider and schedule an MRI with us if needed. Our state-of-the-art imaging technology allows our skilled radiologists to accurately diagnose a range of elbow injuries, from tennis elbow to ligament tears.

One common cause of elbow pain is tennis elbow, a condition that affects the tendons on the outside of the elbow. This injury can occur from overuse or repetitive motions, such as playing tennis or using a computer mouse. Symptoms include pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow, weakness in the forearm, and difficulty gripping objects.

Another common elbow injury is a ligament tear, which can occur from a sudden twisting motion or impact. Symptoms of a ligament tear include pain, swelling, and instability in the elbow joint.

No matter the cause or symptoms, it's important to seek proper medical attention for elbow injuries. Delaying treatment can lead to further damage and prolonged recovery time.

At Atlantic Medical Imaging, we are committed to providing accurate and timely diagnoses for all of our patients. Our experienced team of radiologists and support staff are dedicated to ensuring a comfortable and stress-free experience for every patient.
