Common Types and Causes of Elbow Pain
Every time we use our arm we use our elbow. Often times elbow injuries are caused by overuse or repetitive motion. Elbow injuries or elbow pain also can come from jobs, sports, along with anything in your daily routine that could cause strain or tension.
The elbow has a very intricate design, and while it is more resilient than other joints in your body it still has a risk of wear-and-tear when it is out of alignment. Some causes of elbow pain like tendonitis, or strain on the tendons, are typical from repetitive use when you are not addressing minor discomfort or tension.
Common causes of Elbow Pain include:
- Ligament sprains and tears
- Tennis elbow (pain on the outside of the elbow)
- Golfer’s elbow (pain occurs on the inside of the elbow)
- Nursemaids elbow (slight, but painful dislocation of the elbow, especially among small children if lifted by one arm or swung by the arms)
- Pitcher’s elbow
Elbow pain can interrupt daily activities, routines, along with sports, and job requirements, especially when the pain may spread into your forearm and wrist or up through your shoulder. This can decline your productivity and negatively impact your quality of life.
Typically, when you experience elbow pain after a car accident it can be related to other soft tissue injuries like your neck or shoulder. If you are experiencing elbow pain many times we will use diagnostic imaging such as X-rays or MRIs to see and understand the full extent of your injuries. This will help us to address the cause of your pain and empower you to have the best recovery possible.
