Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Elbow Pain

Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Elbow Pain

Elbow pain can be caused by orthopedic conditions including:

  • Arthritis-inflammation, swelling and stiffness of the joint
  • Repetitive arm movements-such as tennis or golf swings
  • Work-related repetitive movements-such as hammering and painting or raking
