Treatments We Provide

  • Anti-inflammatory Medicine

    Anti-inflammatory medicines, such as ibuprofen or naproxin (like Motrin(R) or Aleve(R)) control pain and swelling. Even though you can buy them at the store, your doctor may also prescribe a stronger dose.

  • Elbow Fracture Repair Surgery

    If a bone in your elbow is fractured, the broken bones are realigned to normal positioning and secured by screws and pins.

  • Orthopedic Devices

    To stabilize your elbow, your doctor may require you to use a splint, sling or brace. This helps keep it still so it can heal, and limits the pain that comes with moving.

  • Outpatient Rehabilitation

    Outpatient rehabilitation services are offered in a variety of settings and locations to ensure you receive the best treatment options available. Conditions we treat range from sports-related injuries and post-surgical conditions to general sprains and strains from everyday living.
