An injury to the elbow can be extremely debilitating, whether you are a professional athlete or part of the active, general population. Elbow injuries are common and can occur in both adults and children from a sports-related injury, fall or accident. In addition, some painful elbow conditions can occur as a result of normal use or activity in the absence of any specific trauma. Common elbow injuries include biceps tendon tears, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow and ulnar nerve entrapment.
Due to the complexity of the joint, it is important to receive treatment from an orthopedic surgeon trained and skilled in the elbow.
