Arm & Elbow Pain Treatment & Therapy

With all of the sports and work activities out there that require arm and hand movement, it is not surprising that arm injuries occur quite frequently in the population. From typing, to massaging; from industrial work, to racquet sports, we use our arms and our hands so frequently during our lives. A small injury, such as tendonitis, can considerable cripple us in our activities because most times the arm pain will spill into another daily activity – such as teeth brushing and feeding.

Upper arm pain or arm numbness is very common when you have tendonitis or a pulled bicep or tricep. Left arm pain can be the result of multiple ailments, the most serious being a possible heart issue. So, if you are experiencing left arm pain please consult with your doctor immediately. But, if your pain is in the right arm then you can consult one of our physical therapists for treatment today.

Our Portland physical therapy clinics are staffed with arm injury therapy specialists and equipment to treat all arm injury pain.

Tennis Elbow Therapy

Therapists treating tennis elbowA patient need not be playing tennis to get tennis elbow. The condition occurs when excessive strain has been given to the forearm extensor muscles and tendons. The lower arm pain can start in the forearm muscle belly, but can also begin on the outer aspect of the elbow. Thankfully, physical therapy is very effective in calming down tissue and tendon pain, and rarely does the patient need further intervention. (In chronic cases where the inflammation is stubborn, and the extensor tendon is damaged extensively, cortisone injection and surgery may be needed for full recovery.)

Most tennis elbow injuries begin because of over-gripping or overloaded wrist-twisting. This can happen at the workplace, while typing on the computer, or through racquet sports. Physical Therapy treatment includes soft tissue mobilization, cold and heat therapy, and gradual grip strengthening and wrist strengthening. Resistance training of proximal muscles such as the shoulder and upper back muscles also help offload the wrist muscles significantly by establishing a stable and strong base for upper extremity activities.

Stride Strong Physical Therapy has extensive experience treating arm injuries. We believe strongly in arm injury therapy, the healing power of strengthening and exercise, which is the crux for majority of arm injuries. Start your healing today by calling us for an appointment to come visit one of our convenient locations in Beaverton and Hillsboro so you can get back to feeling great.

This place is amazing. I am so happy I found Stride Strong PT. Alice pays attention to all of the details, she watches every single move I make, my posture, and the way I move through every exercise. She is very knowledgeable, she was able to pin-point the problems in my back and she has a plan to help me become stronger where I need. The place is brand new, huge, and has nice exercise machines. I tried a few physical therapists in the area, and Alice is TOP, second to none, and I feel super lucky to have found her. Highly recommended!!

I recently had a massage from Joel at the Hillsboro location. He was able to work on an ongoing issue I have been experiencing with my back after a sports injury, and I left feeling so much better. The whole facility looked incredible, and everyone I met was friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend Stride Strong for massage and physical therapy.

Dr. Sydney is by far the absolute best physical therapist I've worked with ever! Her expertise in designing highly effective and efficient exercise plans is beyond compare. I feel so much better as my strength and function increases. She comes up with the most brilliant and fun ideas to motivate. To my delight she even offered to come to my home in Vancouver and work with me on my own equipment including a Stott Pilates Reformer. Talk about going above and beyond! Couldn't be more grateful I found her!!!

A full hour of a dedicated PT professional's time without aides or techs? That's just one of the things that sets this clinic apart from others. Competent, professional, and amiable, Dr. Alice Holland and her team are the best in the area. While I generally see them at the Cedar Mill Clinic on Cornell, situational constraints took me to their new Hillsboro clinic today near Intel Jones Farm. Beautifully furnished, spacious with easy parking and access. May you continue to grow and thrive, Stride Strong!

After foot surgery I went to Stride Strong for therapy with Alice Holland. She helped me reach my full mobility again by continuously introducing new and challenging exercises. The entire staff is friendly and professional. They are always on time and do not rush. I look forward to doing 1/2 marathons again and riding my recumbent trike. Thank you Stride Strong for your care and high level of expertise.

The best physical therapy ever. Both JP and Sydney were a great PT, they helped me understand how I can help treat my injury and how it may have caused. And also they informed about so many techniques that I can use to help my injuries or any other injuries I get in the near future. They are both friendly and nice to talk too, and verbunformative. And there is also Krystal, she is the best front desk receptionist ever, she is nice and friendly and can easily manage your schedule based on the patients comfort if they want to schedule or not. She can help and she replies fast to any patients email. And she is easy to talk to. Thank you Stride Strong Physical Therapy.

Mary Szal here: I've had three sessions with Brittany at the Hillsboro location. I can say that she has been the most effective and instructive physical therapist I've ever experienced. Her personality, energy, knowledge and results are top notch.

Awesome place for PT. Hillsboro location has plenty of parking and very spacious. I had the pleasure to work mostly with Dr. Alice Holland and JP. I came in with a shoulder injury and thank goodness they understood what I was going through. They are the best of what they do, I would recommend Stride Strong to anyone who needs PT.
