Tendonitis, in the form of tennis elbow or golfer's elbow, is one of the most common causes of elbow pain. Once elbow pain starts, it is often chronic or recurring. However, proper healing and proper exercise can eliminate your elbow pain. Other sources of elbow pain respond to a similar course of treatment. I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps play an important role in treating both acute and chronic elbow pain.

Causes of Elbow Pain

Tendonitis becomes more likely as you age. Even if you stay in shape, or think you are staying in shape, your tendon can lose their flexibility over the years. If you are over 40 and play tennis, golf, or other sports, chances are you will have a run-in with elbow tendonitis.

Elbow pain can be the result of an elbow injury such as a sprain or dislocation. It can also creep in with arthritis and other conditions.

Elbow pain can become so severe and easily triggered that it becomes difficult to do the little things you take for granted, like start your car or pick up your coffee cup. You may try to compensate by using the other arm, but sometimes elbow pain strike both elbows.
