Elbow Conditions

The elbow is an important hinge joint between the upper arm, or humerus, and the larger of the two forearm bones, known as the ulna. It has three main supporting ligaments, tendons and multiple muscles cross the joint helping with an extensive range of movements. It is a well used feature of the anatomy and is subject to the effects of wear and tear and injury.
