Elbow Care

baseball elbow injury

The elbow is a miracle of engineering. It is both a hinge and ball joint allowing the arm to bend and your forearm to rotate. Three bones come together at the joint. The humerus (upper arm) and the radius and ulna (forearm) are all held together by a series of ligaments. Tendons join muscles together on the outside of the joint. A bursa sac also covers the outside of the elbow joint allowing skin to move smoothly across it.

Common Elbow Injuries

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Pulled Elbow
