Your elbow is a complex joint, called a hinge joint. It is formed by three long bones in your arm. The arm is bent and rotated at the elbow by muscles in the upper arm. Ligaments located at the front, back, and sides of the elbow help stabilize the joint. Damage to any of these structures or to the joint's network of nerves, blood vessels and ligaments can lead to elbow pain.
Most elbow pain results from overuse injuries, and the pain and stiffness of an elbow problem can affect your lifestyle. Elbow pain is sometimes due to arthritis, or it may be sports-related or the result of activities and professions that require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements.
Whether you are suffering from an old injury, or a recent condition, it is important to make an accurate diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. That's where we can help.
