Elbow Joint

The elbow joint is a complex hinge formed between 3 bones, the distal humerus (upper arm) and the radius and ulna (forearm). Elbow injuries are common among athletes, non-athletes, children and adults alike. The elbow joint is at risk of overuse, wear and tear, acute or sudden injury and degenerative ailments that create pain and limit range of motion. Elbow pain can arise from these common conditions:

  • Lateral Epicondylitis – Also known as Tennis Elbow
  • Medial Epicondylitis – Also known as Golfer’s Elbow
  • Ulnar Nerve entrapment
  • Distal Biceps tendon rupture
  • Elbow fractures
