Elbow Joint Pain
Our elbow allow us to perform are daily task like throwing, lifting, swinging, and hugging. We can do this action because we have an elbow joint. This joint hold on to the humerus, ulna and radius. There is cartilage connect to the end of the bones we mention, so that they can slide against each other and to absorb shocks
If anything happens to any of these parts, the nerves and blood vessels around them may cause you pain.
We will pray hard that we will not injured ourself but sometimes life is full of unpredictable. Some injury cannot be prevent.
When either of the 3 bones that form the elbow joint being knock out of place, either of the bone will be dislocated. One of the common cause is when we try to reach our hard out to break a fall, very high chance we will dislocate our elbow joint. This can also happens to small kids, when we try to swing them holding to their forearm. Some people might born with a weaker elbow joint can also get dislocated easily.
If one of your arm bones breaks at the elbow joint, the chance is you have a fracture elbow. This will normally happens with a great blow on the area, might be from a contact sport or a serious car accident. when you have a fractured elbow chances is you will still be able to move your elbow afterward. If you’re in tremendous of pain on your elbow, it doesn’t look right, it could be broken. You’ll need to get it checked right away.
Strains and sprains

This will happen when we put too much pressure on our elbow joint, example like lifting heavy objects, over work yourself when exercising or push too have when playing a sport. Sprain are more common in athletes, throw objects, hitting with a tools or any physical contact sports.
