Elbow Injury: Top 3 Elbow Injuries!

Common Elbow Injury:

1. Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

When the muscles, ligaments, and tendons to form the elbow joint structure’s over-used, a condition resulting inflame tendons may occur outside of the arm (extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB)) that secures the forearm muscles. Tennis elbow, as the name suggests, is often associated with racquet sports and athletic movements and repetitive work of the wrist, arm, and elbow. The condition, commonly referred to as tennis elbow, can produce tenderness, or depending on the extent of use over substantial pain on the outside of the elbow.

Various treatment options are available for tennis elbow with a favorable prognosis. Early diagnosis and treatment can substantially reduce the likelihood of damage to the joints or nerves ahead.

2. Elbow (olecranon) bursitis

Another common elbow injury is olecranon bursitis. Elbow bursitis is a condition in which the sac slippery (bursa) that includes external and separate elbow bone from the elbow loose skin becomes irritated or inflamed. This condition can be very painful bursa sac should swell with fluid, or if the infection is inflammation of origin, or both. In addition, the exchange sac containing nerve endings reactive to acute and painful swelling. Swelling of the bursa sac elbow bursitis usually flat can range from the visual look for a golf ball-sized and can eventually lead to pus pooling or pocketing.

The cause of elbow bursitis include direct impact trauma to the tip of the elbow, the constant pressure on the elbow joint and repetitive for long months, infections, and other medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.

It is important that the elbow bursitis swelling should be examined by an orthopedic doctor and treated. Should bursa fluid swelling or infection resulting in pooling or pocketing of pus, pus may be blood-borne spread to the whole arm or the whole body. Through pus blood can cause a very serious disease.

3. Ulnar nerve Entrapment

Ulnar nerve entrapment is also known as cubital tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve compression, ulnar nerve nueritis. Entrapment is the result of compression of the ulnar nerve toward the ulna. This compression can cause tingling ongoing or intermittent, sensitivity, numbness, or reduce performance in the ring and little finger, and limitation of movement of the right hand and formed a tight grip hand.

The most frequent points of compression include the wrist, below the collarbone, or at the point of emergence from the spinal cord in the neck, and in particular, in the elbow. Various conditions or injuries can cause ulnar nerve compression areas, such as previous fracture (s) of the elbow, swelling in the elbow joint, bone spurs, or cysts. Moreover, the various actions or patterns of movement can cause further irritation of the ulnar nerve is compressed as the direct impact of trauma in the elbow, leaning on the elbow for a long time, or recurring crease of the elbow.

Ulna nerve traveling from origin below the collarbone down through the arms end at the hands on the pinky. Following nerve pathways to the inside of the upper arm through a network of tunnels (cubital tunnel) at the bottom of the inside of the elbow joint. At this point the nerve can be felt through the skin and is often referred to as the funny bone.

Professional examination, diagnosis, and treatment of ulnar nerve entrapment is highly recommended. Advanced ulnar nerve compression with or without obvious symptoms may cause muscle atrophy and irreversible failure.
