What you need to know
It is fairly easy to incur an elbow injury if you are participating in a sports activity on a regular basis, especially if it is a sport that uses the elbow repetitively, like tennis. Overuse and aging can also lead to various elbow injuries. It is not a simple joint; in your elbow, three bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels come together to allow you to throw, swing, and lift. If any of these parts are damaged, your elbow will not function properly. At Westchase Orthopedics & Rehabilitation, our skilled doctors know how to treat your elbow injury or condition and relieve your pain!
