While there may no fountain of youth, staying active as you age can go a long way toward maintaining and improving your health. The benefits of physical activity, however, are sometimes thwarted by unexpected injury. Our specially trained physicians promote lifelong fitness and wellness, and offer the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation for your particular injury.”
Your elbow joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the elbow joint move. When any of these structures is hurt or diseased, you have elbow problems.
Many things can make your elbow hurt. A common cause is tendinitis, an inflammation or injury to the tendons that attach muscle to bone. Tendinitis of the elbow is a sports injury, often from playing tennis or golf. You may also get tendinitis from overuse of the elbow.
Other causes of elbow pain include sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, bursitis and arthritis. Treatment depends on the cause.
