Elbow Health professionals
Osteoarthritis of the elbow occurs when the cartilage surface of the elbow is damaged or becomes worn. The elbow is one of the least affected joints because of its well matched joint surfaces and strong stabilising ligaments. Pain and stiffness are common symptoms of elbow arthritis.
Tennis elbow (or lateral epicondylosis) is a degenerative condition affecting the insertion of the tendons into the bone on the outside part of the elbow. This condition leads to pain and aching with everyday activities, which is localised to the outer part of the elbow.
Golfer’s elbow (or medial epicondylosis) is a degenerative condition affecting the insertion of the tendons into the bone on the inside part of the elbow. These tendons are connected to the muscles that enable us to bend (flex) both the wrist and fingers.
