An elbow pain treatment specialist often works with other medical professionals, such as physical therapists, chiropractors, and other pain management specialists, to provide the best treatment for each patient. Elbow pain is one of the most common injuries sustained by athletes and active individuals, reinforcing the importance of treatments that address this type of pain.

How do I know if my elbow pain is serious?

Some many signs and symptoms can indicate that elbow pain is serious and should receive professional medical attention right away. These include:

  • An obvious deformity in the elbow
  • A protruding bone
  • Severe pain, swelling and bruising around the elbow
  • Trouble moving elbow normally
  • Pain is not relieved with home care
  • Pain that occurs when not using elbow
  • Increasing redness, swelling, or pain in the elbow

What can cause elbow pain without injury?

While elbow pain is commonly caused by an injury, fall, or traumatic event, it can also be caused by a wide number of medical conditions, including:

  • Bursitis (joint inflammation)
  • Osteoarthritis (disease-causing the breakdown of joints)
  • Osteochondritis dissecans
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammatory joint disease)
  • Sprains
  • Tendinitis
  • Trapped nerves

Why does my elbow hurt so bad?

Common causes of elbow pain include:

  • Lateral Epicondylitis — Commonly known as tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis is one of the most common causes of elbow pain. People who are prone to this condition include those who repeatedly move their forearm muscles in the same way, including tennis players, painters, and weightlifters.
  • Medial Epicondylitis — More commonly known as golfer’s elbow, medial epicondylitis causes pain near the inner side of the elbow joint. It can occur when using force to grip an object over and over again, the same way athletes hold onto a golf club or racquet, and can cause weakness in the forearm muscles.
  • Biceps and Triceps Tendonitis — Biceps tendonitis is often caused by repetitive biceps muscle use, which can result from lifting heavy objects. Triceps tendonitis can occur when people repeatedly extend their elbow with resistance, commonly seen in weightlifters. Biceps tendonitis causes an aching pain in front of the elbow, whereas triceps tendonitis causes an aching pain at the back of the elbow.
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome — Cubital tunnel syndrome affects the ulnar nerve, which travels from the neck to the hand. If this nerve becomes squeezed or compressed as it wraps around the inside of the elbow, it is known as cubital tunnel syndrome.
  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome — Radial tunnel syndrome occurs when the radial nerve, which travels down the arm, is compressed. It causes vague pain that comes on gradually and may also exhibit symptoms of numbness on the back of the hand and forearm.
  • Elbow Fractures — While the elbow is a strong and resilient structure, if it sustains a traumatic impact, such as falling on the elbow, it can become fractured. Olecranon and radial head fractures are the two most common types of elbow fractures, and often present symptoms such as sudden, severe pain in the elbow and forearm; swelling; numbness, and tingling in the hand; and an inability to straighten the arm.
  • Elbow Dislocation — While an elbow dislocation is not as common, it can occur if someone falls onto the palms of their hands. The force of the hand hitting the ground can twist the elbow out of its socket, causing the bones of the elbow to separate. Dislocation often causes elbow deformity; swelling; bruising; and numbness and tingling of the hand.
