Got Elbow Pain?
This May Be Why
You may not think of the elbow as an integral part of your daily routine, but you rely on this mighty little joint for almost every arm movement. A highly complex structure of bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves, the elbow is a synovial hinge joint that allows the arm to bend and straighten, while enabling the forearm to rotate. Although non-weight bearing, the elbow is extensively used in day-to-day activities, which makes it prone to injury, particularly for athletes.
The elbow is made up of three bones – the humerus, ulna, and radius – connecting the upper arm to the forearm. These bones are held together with ligaments, such as the medial collateral ligament on the inside of the elbow, the lateral collateral ligament on the outside of the elbow, and the annular ligament, which holds the radial head against the ulna.
Other main components of the elbow include the bicep and tricep tendons, and the radial, ulnar, and medial nerves that signal your muscles to function.
