When you have elbow pain or dysfunction, you suddenly realize how important this joint is to everyday activities. You rely on your elbows for almost every type of arm movement and dexterity. The elbow joint has many components that can be damaged due to degeneration, inflammation or injury, resulting in pain, loss of strength or limited motion. Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts can help treat elbow injuries and pain at our clinics in the greater Atlanta area.
The elbow joint contains tendons that attach the muscles from the upper and lower arm to the three bones that meet at the elbow. It also has ligaments that hold the joint in place with cartilage and bursae to cushion and protect the joint during movement. Nerves run through the radial and cubital tunnels in the elbow, controlling sensation and movement of the forearm, wrist, hand and fingers. When disease or injury affects any component of the elbow, it can cause acute or chronic pain and limit mobility for the arm, wrist and hand.
