Procedures We Offer For Elbow Pain Treatment In Houston, TX

The treatment options depend on the type and severity of your condition. If the issue is mild, we may start with conservative measures (such as splints or heat/ice packs) and medications to improve your symptoms. In severe cases, we will discuss surgical options.

  • Physiotherapy
    Physiotherapy includes various exercises that can strengthen your elbow joint and reduce stiffness. These targeted exercises can also help people recover from elbow injuries or fractures. Through a consistent routine, you will notice a drastic improvement in your elbow pain.
  • Steroid Injections
    In case of severe pain or inflammation of the elbow joint, we may recommend corticosteroid injections. They are particularly helpful for inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
    PRP injections are an advanced technique that greatly helps improve the symptoms of tennis and golfer’s elbow. We will take a sample of your blood and process it to extract the platelet-rich plasma. It is injected into the affected joint for pain reduction and enhanced movement.
  • Surgery
    Severe cases of elbow pain may require surgical intervention. There are different types of elbow surgery, including elbow joint replacement and elbow arthroscopy. Our orthopedists will discuss the most effective treatment options to improve your elbow joint function.

Patient Reviews

If this surgery is a little frightening, I understand. I interviewed doctors until I was satisfied that the one I chose was right for me. The pain and restriction of movement in my left shoulder was debilitating. Dr. Michael Cusick is totally committed to his trade. Complete total reverse shoulder replacement.

Kyle Powell

Don't get me wrong there was hiccups and waiting to have surgery seemed like forever but Dr. Cusick, his office staff and the hospital staff especially has been amazing. They went above and beyond to get my surgery approved so we wouldn't have to put it off longer. Dr. Cusick keeps a positive outlook even at times...

Kathy Zenker
