More Info

Your elbow's a joint formed where three bones come together - your upper arm bone (humerus), the ulna and the radius (the two bones that make up the forearm). Each bone has cartilage on the end, which helps them slide against each other and absorb shocks. They're lashed into place with tissue called ligaments. And your tendons connect your bones to muscles to allow you to move your arm in different ways.

It can be fractured (one of your arm bones breaks at the elbow), it can be strained or sprained. Your elbow may also hurt because of wear-and-tear injuries. You may have bursitis which is caused by repeating the same motion over and over or from an accident or infection. Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow are also common wear-and-tear injuries; both are the type of tendinitis (swelling in the tendons from overuse). Trapped nerves also cause elbow pain - also known as carpal tunnel syndrome, where a nerve that passes through your wrist gets squeezed.
