There are many culprits that can cause elbow pain.  Luckily, here at Carle McLean County Orthopedics our skilled team of physical therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and occupational doctors and surgeons will work with you to get back the life you love. Symptoms of elbow pain rely heavily on severity and location of pain/injury and your daily activity. Age also plays a factor in elbow pain. Conditions such as arthritis and nerve entrapment are common after years and years of activity that can lead to elbow inflammation.

The over-use and sports injuries are often caused by damage being done over time. Tennis players, baseball players, and golfers often experience elbow pain due to the repetitive motions used in these sports. Whether you are throwing a pitch or swinging a golf club or tennis racket, these motions can lead to injury. There are several ligaments located in the elbow joint, making strains and sprains two of the most common elbow injuries. Through years of wear and tear on the joints, osteoarthritis can affect the elbow and cause pain and swelling. Common elbow injuries include:

  • Dislocated elbow
  • Fractured elbow
  • Strained/Sprained elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve entrapment
