What is an Elbow Sprain?
Elbow sprains include a category of injuries to the ligaments around the elbow joint. Injuries usually occurs when a patient bends or twists the arm quickly or forcibly. Contrast with Elbow Overuse Injuries, occur over longer periods of time due to repeated strenuous use.
The ligaments in the elbow connect the upper arm bone and the pair of bones that make up the forearm (the radius and ulna). All of which connect to the elbow joint. Pulled or torn ligaments can cause extreme pain that limits the ability to move the elbow.
