Elbow Arthritis

Elbow Arthritis

Osteoarthritis of the elbow occurs when the cartilage surface of the elbow is damaged or becomes worn. This can happen because of a previous injury such as elbow dislocation or fracture. It may also be the result of degeneration of the joint cartilage from age. Osteoarthritis usually affects the weight-bearing joints, such as the hip […]

Posterior Interosseous Nerve Compression

Posterior Interosseous Nerve Compression

Anatomy This is a deep motor branch of the radial nerve. After emerging above the elbow between the brachioradialis and brachialis muscles, the radial nerve divides into the superficial radial nerve and the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) at the level of the lateral epicondyle. The PIN passes through the supinator muscle as is goes from the […]

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

Ulnar nerve entrapment occurs when the ulnar nerve in the arm becomes compressed or irritated. The ulnar nerve is one of the three main nerves in your arm. It travels from your neck down into your hand, and can be constricted in several places along the way. Depending upon where it occurs, this pressure on […]

Elbow Fracture

Elbow Fracture

When you bend your elbow, you can easily feel its “tip,” a bony prominence that extends from one of the lower arm bones (the ulna). That tip is called the olecranon (oh-lek’-rah-nun). It is positioned directly under the skin of the elbow, without much protection from muscles or other soft tissues. It can easily break […]

Radial Head Fracture

Radial Head Fracture

Trying to break a fall by putting your hand out in front of you seems almost instinctive. But the force of the fall could travel up the lower forearm bones and dislocate the elbow. It also could break the smaller bone (radius) in the forearm. A break can occur near the elbow at the radial […]

Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture

Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture

The biceps muscle is in the front of your upper arm. It helps you bend your elbow and rotate your forearm. It also helps keep your shoulder stable. Tendons attach muscles to bones. Your biceps tendons attach the biceps muscle to bones in the shoulder and in the elbow. If you tear the biceps tendon […]

Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Radial Tunnel Syndrome

There are 3 major nerves that supply the muscles of the hand and forearm as well as sensation to the hand: the median, ulnar and radial nerves. The radial nerve arises from a large plexus of nerves in the neck (the brachial plexus), winds around the back of the upper arm (humerus) to lie in […]

Elbow Bursitis

Elbow Bursitis

Bursae are thin, slippery sacs located throughout the body that act as cushions between bones and soft tissues. They contain a small amount of lubricating fluid that allows the skin to move freely over the underlying bone. The olecranon bursa lies between the loose skin and the pointy bone at the back of the elbow […]

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. There is a bump of bone on the inner portion of the elbow (medial epicondyle) under which the ulnar nerve passes. This site is commonly called the “funny bone”.  At this site, the ulnar nerve lies directly […]

Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s elbow is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist. Golfer’s elbow is similar to tennis elbow. But it occurs on the inside, […]

Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow. It’s clinically known as lateral epicondylitis. It often occurs after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, near the elbow joint. You may notice pain: on the outside of your upper forearm, just below the bend of your elbow when lifting or bending your arm […]
