Understanding the Elbow Joint

The arm in the human body is made up of three bones that join together to form a hinge joint called the elbow. The upper arm bone or humerus connects from the shoulder to the elbow forming the top of the hinge joint. The lower arm or forearm consists of two bones, the radius and the ulna. These bones connect the wrist to the elbow forming the bottom portion of the hinge joint.

The elbow joint is held in place and put together by the cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It consists of three separate joints surrounded by a watertight sac called a joint capsule. This capsule surrounds the elbow joint and contains lubricating fluid called synovial fluid.

What Causes Elbow Pain? 

It can be caused by a variety of problems such as inflammatory conditions.

They include; tendinitis, olecranon bursitis, arthritis, traumatic conditions like fractures and sprains, infections  like cellulitis, tuberculosis, nerve irritation and entrapments and other conditions like bone and soft tissue tumors.

People who play racquet sports and golfers are most likely to injure the tendons on the outside of the elbow. This condition is commonly called tennis elbow.

Often caused by overuse during activities such as gardening, sport activities, elbow joint pain is still prone to serious long-term injury. Contact us to find out the exact reason behind your chronic elbow pain with specialists at NSOC to begin your road to recovery.
