icon-anatomy-doctorAbout your elbow

Your elbow is one of the most widely used joints in the human body. The elbow consists of bones, tendons and joints that allow for the extension (straightening) and flexion (bending) of the arm.

The humerus (upper arm bone) and the two bones in your forearm (ulnar and radius) comprise the elbow joint. Surrounding each of the bones are tendons, ligaments and muscles that bind the elbow joint together. This complex combination of soft tissues makes the elbow joint a common site for injury.

icon-symptoms-doctorCommon causes of elbow pain

Injuries of the elbow joint may result in pain and can be accompanied by inflammation or swelling of the area.

Most elbow pain is caused by a sudden impact (such as a sprain, strain or fracture) or repetitive stress (any activity that involves repetitive arm, wrist or hand movements). It can be an acute injury (which lasts for no more than six weeks) or a chronic condition (which lasts for more than six weeks).

To be certain of the cause of your elbow pain, be sure to contact the orthopedic doctors and sports medicine experts at Westchester Sport and Spine for specific diagnosis of your elbow pain.
