The elbow is a hinge joint formed by the humerus of the upper arm and the radius and ulna of the lower arm. The elbow allows bending and straightening motions as well as rotation of the forearm and wrist.
It is common to have referred pain from an elbow problem which can sometimes radiate down into the forearm, although usually not into the hand. Pain locations can vary and you may find it is sore to press over certain areas on either the inside or outside of the elbow. Wrist movements, gripping and twisting motions are also often painful.
If you have had trauma to your elbow and have a significant loss of movement and/or a change in the shape of your elbow then please self-refer to be assessed in person.
