The elbow joint is a complex structure that allows for both bending and rotation of the forearm. Comprising three separate joints (the radiocapitellar, ulnohumeral, and proximal radioulnar joints), the elbow facilitates a wide range of arm motions. When this joint becomes irritated or injured, it can result in pain, discomfort, and limited movement. Elbow joint pain can be the consequence of several factors, ranging from simple overuse to more complicated medical conditions.
