As with any other joint in the body, the elbow is a fine balance of structures including bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, each of which can be injured or can lose proper function over time. Tendinitis, for example, is a common overuse condition and a frequent complaint from tennis players, golfers, and swimmers.
Other causes of elbow pain can include sprains, fractures from trauma or sports injuries, arthritis (degeneration), bursitis, and more.
Many elbow conditions can be treated with rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medication, and physical therapy. Some cases may require surgery, which is often performed using minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques. Learn more about common elbow conditions we treat:
