An elbow injury affects one or more of the three bones of the elbow joint. The treatment of a fracture depends on the extent to which the individual bone fragments have been displaced. In rare cases an immobilization of the elbow in a plaster may be enough, but usually an operative fixation is necessary.
Painfulness of the elbow joint in certain movements typically occurs in patients between the ages of 35 and 55, who are regularly physically active, and indicate an over-exertion of the forearm muscles. Epicondylitis is usually treated conservatively. In stubborn cases, however, an operation is advised.
