Diagnosis of Elbow Pain
One Staff physicians will conduct a thorough medical history, physical, orthopedic, neurological examination, and take X-rays to determine the cause of your elbow pain.
Causes of Elbow Pain
Elbow pain may be caused by trauma, injury, bone arthritis, bursitis, sports injury, or inflammation caused by repetitive use or overuse injury. Participating in activities, sports, or hobbies require performing the same movement over and over again. Playing golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, etc. requires constant throwing or overusing the elbow joint and supportive muscles and ligaments. This can result in wear and tear injuries to the soft tissues and bone that can become acute or chronic elbow pain.
