The elbow consists of three separate bones: the humerus, the radius and the ulna and these bones are connected by several ligaments. Although not a very common injury, Elbow Dislocations occur when direct force is applied to either the arm or the elbow in combination with a twisting motion that forces the elbow out of the socket. In other instances, these injuries occur when a person tries to cushion and impact, such as a fall or car accident, and the force causes dislocation of the elbow.
In a complete dislocation, the joint surfaces are completely separated. In a partial dislocation, the joint surfaces are only partly separated.
Symptoms of an Elbow Dislocation can include:
- Pain in the elbow
- Swelling of the elbow
- Difficulty bending the arm
- Numbness in the wrist or hand
Tennis Elbow is a common term for pain as a result of overuse of the muscles of the hand, forearm and arm that are connected to the elbow. The pain most often occurs in the bony area on the inside of the elbow where all of the muscles join together, known as the lateral epicondyle.
Despite the name “Tennis Elbow”, this condition can affect anyone whose activities or job requires repetitive movement of the hand, wrist or forearm. Specifically gardeners, landscapers, contractors, mechanics and cleaners often suffer this injury.
Symptoms of Tennis Elbow can include:
- Pain at the outside of the elbow that slowly gets worse
- Pain in the elbow when gripping or squeezing objects
- Soreness of the elbow
