Elbow Pain

Elbow pain

Elbow pain is often caused by overuse or injury. Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. Elbow pain can be the result of problems with bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments or joints. Elbow pain may occasionally be due to arthritis. But in general, your elbow joint is much less likely to have wear-and-tear damage than are many other joints.

Causes of Elbow pain

  • Broken Arm
  • Bursitis
  • Cervical disc herniation
  • Dislocated elbow
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Reactive arthritis
  • Shoulder problems
  • Sprains
  • Stress fractures

Placing an ice pack on the area for up to 20 minutes, three times a day and keeping the elbow elevated and wrapped in a compression bandage may help to reduce swelling. Taking pain medication such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or naproxen may also help.
