Elbow Pain

Elbow Pain

The elbow joint is a combination hinge and pivot joint: the hinge part lets the arm bend and straighten and the pivot part lets the forearm twist and rotate.

Elbow pain, golfers elbow and tennis elbow

Common causes of elbow pain are as follows:

  • Arthritis: Degeneration at the joint caused by the ageing and drying of the cartilage results in pain, stiffness and a reduced range of movement
  • Tennis Elbow: Inflammation or tears in the lateral epicondyle tendon cause pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow
  • Golfer's Elbow: Inflammation and tears in the medial epicondyle tendon cause pain and tenderness on the inside of the elbow
  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa (a fluid filled sack that provides lubrication for the joint) shows as a swelling behind the elbow

Whilst Golfer's elbow and Tennis elbow are common, you don't have to play either to have the conditions. Any regular, repetitive action has the potential to inflame and damage tissues in the joint whether through work or a recreational activity. Both are the result of overuse of the forearm through the gripping motion of the hands and twisting motion of the wrist.
