Causes of elbow pain

1. Tennis elbow: Also known as lateral epicondylitis, this condition causes pain on the outer part of the elbow due to overuse of the tendons that attach to the lateral epicondyle (a bony bump on the outer side of the elbow).

2. Golfer’s elbow: This condition is similar to tennis elbow, but the pain is felt on the inner part of the elbow due to overuse of the tendons that attach to the medial epicondyle (a bony bump on the inner side of the elbow).

3. Bursitis: This is an inflammation of the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac located between the bone and soft tissue at the tip of the elbow.

4. Arthritis: Various types of arthritis can affect the elbow joint and cause pain, stiffness, and swelling.

5. Olecranon fracture: This is a break in the bony prominence at the back of the elbow, often caused by a direct blow or fall.

6. Tendinitis: This is an inflammation or irritation of the tendons that attach muscle to bone, often caused by repetitive motions or overuse.

7. Radial tunnel syndrome: This is a condition where the radial nerve is compressed or pinched as it passes through a tunnel near the elbow, causing pain and weakness in the forearm and hand.

8. Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury: This is a common injury among athletes who throw or use repetitive overhead motions, causing pain and instability in the elbow joint.
