Elbow pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as osteoarthritis, or of a recent injury, such as a fall.
The onset of osteoarthritis, a condition involving the degeneration of joint cartilage, often occurs in people with a history of elbow injuries.
The most common cause of pain in the elbow can be related to a recent injury. Elbow injuries commonly occur during:
- Sports or recreational activities
- Work-related responsibilities
- Home improvement projects
Elbow pain can also be caused by overuse. Overuse injuries of the elbow, such as tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis), tennis elbow, or golfer's elbow, lead to inflammation, which can cause considerable pain in the elbow and forearm.
At Orthopedic Associates, we understand that pain in the elbow can make everyday activities challenging.
Our elbow expert knows that proper diagnosis is paramount in determining the most effective treatment plan for your individual condition.
