Elbow pain can come from a variety of sources, but typically occurs due to an overuse of the elbow joint from repetitive activities.
The same bones (radius and ulnar) that make up the elbow also form the wrist and play a key role in the movements of the hands. Most of the muscles that make your wrist and fingers move are located in the forearm.
TENNIS AND GOLFER’S ELBOW
Tennis elbow and Golfer’s elbow are painful inflammatory conditions of the tendons on the outside and inside of the elbow.
Without treatment, this condition can often persist for months, whereas physiotherapy can rapidly help improve the symptoms and promote a quick return to activity.
