Elbow Conditions

The elbow joint is a complex joint that involves a combination of movements in everyday activity.  The main movement is bending (flexing) and straightening (extending) however part of the elbow joint is involved with rotation of the forearm.  As a result the elbow relies on both the bones of the joint as well as several tendons to stabilize and move the joint.

The pain around the elbow can affect all age groups and in this section we detail some of the common causes for symptoms in and around the elbow as well as potential treatments.
