Elbow pain is often caused by overuse or injury. Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. Elbow pain can be the result of problems with bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments or joints. Elbow pain may occasionally be due to arthritis.
- Limited range of motion
- Warmth and redness
Elbow pain is caused when you damage the bones, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, or bursae (cushioning structures) in your elbow joint.
The most common cause of elbow pain is overuse injuries, including tendonitis, bursitis, sprains, and strains. Most of these injuries tend to be chronic and cause persistent pain.
Occupational therapists may use modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Occupational therapists design specific exercises to strengthen the muscles surrounding the elbow joint. This can help improve stability and reduce strain on the joint.
