Most people with arthritis of the shoulder and with other painful shoulder conditions will receive some alternatives to elbow surgery before they see a surgeon for elbow surgery.
Some successful alternatives to elbow surgery are listed below;

• Painkillers

Most pain-relieving medications using as alternatives to elbow surgery fall into one of the following groups.
Non-opioid painkillers; includes paracetamol. Some of these are available over the counter from pharmacies and supermarkets. Other types need a prescription.
Anti-inflammatory drugs which include ibuprofen or naproxen are also known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. Some of these can be bought over the counter, and some need a prescription.
Compound painkillers; this is when two different drugs are combined into one. This can be a painkiller with an NSAID, or an opioid painkiller with a non-opioid painkiller. An example of compound pain killer is co-codamol, which combines paracetamol with codeine.
Opioid painkillers such as codeine, tramadol and morphine can use for moderate to severe pain when other painkillers haven’t worked. These are only available on prescription.

• Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs)

They act by altering the underlying disease rather than just treating symptoms. They’re not painkillers but are good alternatives to elbow surgery but they’ll reduce pain, stiffness and stiffness over a period of weeks or months by slowing down the disease and its effects on the joints.
There are two types of DMARDs.
Conventional DMARDs are slow-acting so it’s important to keep taking them even if they don’t seem to have any effect at first.
Other type is biological therapies target a protein called tumor necrosis factor, which increases inflammation when excess amounts are present in the blood or joints.

• Steroid injections

Steroid injections are often recommended as alternatives to elbow surgery for people with rheumatoid arthritis and other types of inflammatory arthritis. They may also be recommended for osteoarthritis if the condition causes you very painful joints or if you need extra pain relief for a time. The steroid injection reduces inflammation, which in turn should reduce the pain.

• Physiotherapy
