The elbow is a critical joint in the musculoskeletal system. It doesn’t have to bear weight, like a knee or ankle does; however, think of all the things you wouldn’t be able to do if you couldn’t bend your arm: button your shirt, drive a car, pick up a baby, and so on. Just experiencing pain and inflammation in this important joint can make it difficult to perform daily activities.
Problems that can occur in the elbow include arthritis and instability and overuse conditions, such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), and Tommy John injury. In this report, we’re going to define some of these and the traditional and interventional orthopedics solutions to elbow problems.
