The elbow is one of the most complicated joints in your body. It’s crucial to performing day-to-day activities, and any problems can drastically impact your quality of life. Likewise, broken arms make it difficult to work, drive and complete even the simplest tasks.
The elbow is one of the largest joints in the body, connecting the bones of the forearm (radius and ulna) to the upper arm bone (humerus) through a network of ligaments and muscles. The elbow is also responsible for a great deal of our range of motion.
However, because it is one of the most frequently exercised and most stressed joints, it is also prone to injury, such as hyperextension and fractures, as well as orthopedic conditions, such as osteoarthritis and bursitis. While intermittent elbow and arm pain is usually not serious, it can cause considerable pain.
