Elbow Pain

Let's treat your Elbow Problems

So what causes Elbow problems?

Your elbow is a joint formed where three bones come together – your upper arm bone, called the humerus and the ulna and radius, the two bones that make up your forearm. The forearm muscles that bend the wrist back are attached and connected by a single tendon. Tendons connect muscles to bone. The continuous pull on these muscles and tendons causes general wear and tear.

The most common problems that arise around the elbow are tennis elbow and golfers elbow. Funnily enough, rarely do the people that suffer from these problems play golf or tennis. Arthritis is another common problem around the elbow and can often result in the inability to be able to straighten the arm due to pain or a joint restriction. The following activities can often bring on elbow pain:

Overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm and elbow are the most common reason people develop elbow pain. 

Some general causes include:

  • Lack of strength in the forearm muscles
  • Instability of the elbow joint
  • Poor technique during sport
  • Sporting equipment not suited to the individual, for example a golf club too heavy for the person using it
  • Tedious and repetitive movements of the hands and arms
  • Incorrect or improper lifting technique
