The elbow is the joint that connects the upper arm to the forearm. It contains bones, ligaments and joints that work in tandem to provide your arm the ability to bend and your hands to turn. A smaller joint by comparison to others, the elbow can be susceptible to a variety of injuries including common overuse conditions as well as dislocations, fractures and even arthritic conditions.

These lists are not inclusive of all conditions and procedures. In order to obtain a complete and accurate diagnosis, a physician should assess your individual situation. Following diagnosis, your physician will discuss appropriate treatment options with you – both surgical and non-surgical. Schedule an appointment with an Orthopedic ONE physician.

Common Elbow Pain Sources

As with the hand, wrist and upper extremity, any dysfunction of the elbow can easily impair the function of the surrounding area leaving you unable to perform basic tasks of daily living. Injuries are the most common cause of elbow pain, most of which occur gradually over time as seen in athletes. Older adults who experience the typical decreased bone and muscle strength that comes with the aging process are also at increased risk for injuries and fractures of the elbow joint.
