The elbow is a complex joint consisting of three articulations-

  • The radio-capitellar joint
  • The ulna-humeral joint
  • The proximal radio-ulnar joint

It plays an essential role in daily life facilitating the hand being able to work and function in a sphere and in sporting life it has an important role as a shock absorber.

The elbow joint can suffer from a number of conditions including:

  • Fractures
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tendinopathy
  • Tendon rupture
  • Bursitis
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Stiffness
