What is Elbow Pain?

There are several conditions which can affect the elbow. The two most common causes are tennis elbow and golfers elbow. There are other causes such as arthritis, instability and nerve problems which can cause elbow and forearms symptoms.

Tennis elbow causes pain and tenderness around the outside of the elbow joint, whereas golfer’s elbow causes pain around the inner side of the joint.

In most cases, both conditions can be easily self-managed by adjusting activities to avoid further pain, carrying out simple exercises and if necessary, using painkillers.
