Elbow Pain

What is Elbow Pain?

The elbow is the joint where three long bones meet in the middle portion of the arm. The radius and ulna also meet in the elbow to allow for rotation of the forearm. The elbow functions to move the arm like a hinge and in rotation motion. The biceps muscle is the major muscle that flexes the elbow hinge. The triceps muscle is the major muscle that extends the elbow hinge. Tendons are attached to this area which can be injured, causing inflammation or tendinitis. The inner portion of the elbow is a bony prominence called the medial epicondyle. Additional tendons from the muscles attach here and can be injured, causing medial epicondylitis, “golfer’s elbow.” A fluid-filled sac , which serves to reduce friction, overlies the tip of the elbow. The elbow can be affected by inflammation of the tendons or the bursae or conditions that affect the bones and joints, such as fractures, arthritis, or nerve irritation. Joint pain in the elbow can result from injury or disease involving any of these structures.

Elbow pain is most often the result of tendinitis, arthritis and bursitis which can affect the inner or outer elbow. Funny bone sensation is irritation of a nerve at the elbow that causes numbness and tingling of the inner elbow, forearm as well as little and ring fingers.


Prevention for Elbow Pain

  • Warm up by stretching the forearm before and after exercise
