Tennis Elbow

This condition, commonly called tennis elbow, is an inflammation of the tendons that connect the muscles of the forearm to the elbow. The pain is primarily felt at the lateral epicondyle, the bony bump on the outer side of the elbow.

Golfer's Elbow

This condition, commonly called golfer’s elbow, is an inflammation of the tendons that connect the muscles of the forearm to the elbow. The pain is primarily felt at the medial epicondyle, the bony bump on the inner side of the elbow.

What Causes Elbow Pain?

The elbow is a complex joint made of three different bones: the humerus in the upper arm and the ulna and the radius in the forearm. These bones are covered by cartilage – which is a flexible connective tissue that cushions the bones against impact. The elbow also has tendons, which are tissues that attach the bone to the muscle to make the elbow movement possible. The important tendons in the elbow include the triceps and biceps tendons. Besides, the elbow also has ligaments, which are another type of tissue that connect bones to bones.

Injury, inflammation, or strain of any of these elements can cause elbow pain. The most common cause of elbow pain is repetitive stress injury where the joints are overused. Overuse leads to inflammation of tendons in the elbow leading to tendinitis or tennis elbow.

The elbow joints can also be affected by degenerative conditions such as arthritis, gout, or other autoimmune conditions that lead to inflammation and pain. The other factors that lead to elbow pain are fractures, sprains, local infection or bursitis, nerve injury or a pinched nerve, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other sports injuries.
