Our experienced elbow specialists and therapists have the experience needed for accurate diagnosis of elbow injuries, conditions and degenerative disease complications.
Causes of Elbow Injury and Reduction in Mobility
Many things can cause elbow pain and reduce mobility. Among the most common is tendinitis which is an inflammation or injury to the tendons that anchor to bone at the elbow. Generally, tendinitis is a sports related injury often experienced by golfers and tennis players. Repetitive activities that involve the elbow can also result in tendinitis. Other causes of elbow injury include strains, dislocations, sprains, arthritis and bursitis.
