The elbow is a hinge joint made up by the humerus, ulna and radius.

The unique positioning and interaction of the bones in the joint allows for a small amount of rotation (supination or pronation) as well as hinge action (flexion or extension). This rotation is easily noticed during activities such as hand-to-mouth eating motions.

The primary stability of the elbow is provided by the ulnar collateral ligament, on the inside (medial) aspect of the elbow.

However, one of the most common injuries to the elbow occurs on the lateral, or outer, side of the elbow — it is called Lateral Epicondylitis, or tennis elbow.

This a painful inflammatory condition that develops when the tendon that connects muscle to bone in the outer elbow becomes inflamed or torn. A similar injury can occur on the inner elbow. It’s known as “golfer’s elbow.”
