A Brief Introduction to the Elbow & Elbow Pain
The elbow is a joint, which is the conjunction (or meeting
point) of two or more bones. What’s more, it is considered a ball-and-socket
joint, which means that the bones form a cup shape around a slippery,
gelatinous sac (forming the “ball”), allowing movement of the joint in more
than one direction.
In the case of the elbow there are three bones involved – the humerus (or upper
arm bone), and the radius and ulna (which make up the forearm or lower arm).
Together, they allow us to move the joint in two different ways – flexing and
extending (like doing bicep curls), and pronation/supination (which is when you
turn arm from palm facing down to palm facing up, or vice-versa).
The complexity of bones, muscles, and ligaments meeting at
this joint coupled with its range of motion, not to mention its range of
everyday movements, can sometimes cause parts of this joint to become irritated
or inflamed – the two most common sources of elbow pain. The causes for that
irritation and inflammation are most often some combination of overexertion and
overuse, though infection, genetics, and degenerative diseases can always play
a role as well.
