There are many causes of radial tunnel syndrome

Radial tunnel syndrome is caused by repetitive movements of the arm, such as typing or playing musical instruments, as well as direct trauma to the area. The most common treatments are chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy and massage therapy exercises. These methods help increase flexibility and reduce inflammation in the tendon sheath surrounding the radial nerve. Additionally, certain exercises can help alleviate tension on the nerves, resulting in decreased pain levels.

Radial tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the elbow area of the arm, resulting in pain in the outer part of the elbow when attempting to use the forearm muscles. This condition develops by increased pressure on and around the radial nerve, which can be painful and hard to manage without proper diagnosis and treatment. While activities such as tennis, golfing, weightlifting or throwing can exacerbate symptoms, usually everyday tasks cause flare-ups for those suffering from this issue.

Symptoms of radial tunnel syndrome include pain at the back of the elbow joint that may radiate down to the wrist and forearm, difficulty extending the arm completely from a bent position, tenderness and swelling on the inside of the elbow, a feeling of numbness in areas such as those affected by carpal tunnel syndrome, and difficulty with activities requiring repetitive bending of the wrist or twisting of the lower arm.

Radial tunnel syndrome is a condition causing pain in the area around the elbow. Thankfully, there are many treatments that can help to reduce the discomfort caused by this condition. A chiropractor is an expert on manual treatments and can help to mobilize the affected area. Physiotherapy has also been known to provide great relief as its focus on repetitive movement and stretches works to reduce tension in the radial nerve. Additionally, massage therapy can help with stretching sore or tender parts of the arm, alleviating stiffness and relaxation of muscles. All of these treatments have been found to be quite effective in reducing discomfort from radial tunnel syndrome when employed together or separately.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
