When we stop and think of our bodies, there are common areas where problems may occur. With our bones and joints, it could be our hips, knees, or our backs. These are mainly issues due to the aging process. Yet we can also have problems with our smaller joints, not always due to aging but perhaps from an injury or trauma.
One such joint is the elbow, also called the olecranon. The elbow joint consists of several parts to allow this hinge joint to work. There are the bones, cartilage, and ligaments, plus fluid sacs around the joint. The muscles and tendons are there to allow free movement. If any of these structures become damaged or diseased then you have a problem.
If you’ve been suffering from pain in your elbow, it could be one of several conditions. If the pain continues over a long period it might be beneficial to seek advice.
