What Elbow Conditions Require a Specialist?

Some types of elbow pain are usually short-term, can be resolved with rest and ice therapy, and are not a cause for concern. However, elbow pain can indicate a more serious, underlying condition that may require treatment from a specialist. 

  • Pain in your elbow that doesn't improve, even with rest and ice
  • Pain when not bending your elbow or using your arm
  • Swelling, pain, or redness in the elbow gets worse over time
  • A reduced range of motion or obvious deformity in your elbow
  • Painful symptoms following an injury or fall

Should you experience any of the symptoms above, you should contact Dr. Donnelly's office to schedule an evaluation.
