Common causes for elbow pain

Elbow pain is a common condition that can be caused by various factors, from overuse to injury to medical conditions. Here are some of the most common reasons for elbow pain:

Elbow Sprain / Strain

This occurs when the ligaments, muscles, or tendons in the elbow are overstretched or torn due to unexpected overstretching of the tissues. It can cause swelling, pain, and difficulty moving the elbow.

Little Leaguer’s Elbow: A common overuse injury experienced in adolescent baseball/softball. The effects of repetitive overhand throwing cause the inner elbow growth plate to become inflamed, resulting in pain while throwing or immediately after.

Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) sprain: The ligaments on the inner side of your elbow are stretched or torn due to a throwing motion. It is a common injury in baseball players.


This diagnosis describes any problem with a tendon, including disease, injury, or disorder. The most common types of injuries to a tendon include tendonitis and tendinosis.

Tennis elbow: This occurs due to inflammation in the tendons of the outer elbow (lateral epicondyle). It is commonly associated with tasks that involve gripping, lifting, or twisting the forearm, such as holding a tennis racket, paintbrush, or hammer.

Golfer’s elbow: It is similar to tennis elbow, except the pain is on the inside of the elbow due to the overuse of muscles that flex the wrist and fingers.


This is a condition in which the joint becomes inflamed, leading to pain, swelling, and stiffness. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and psoriatic arthritis can all affect the elbow joint.

Nerve injuries

Several nerves run through the elbow to the forearm and hand, and nerve injuries can result from traction and compression due to forceful, repetitive stresses on the elbow joint.


This is a condition in which the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac near the elbow joint, becomes inflamed and swollen. It can be caused by repetitive pressure or a direct blow to the elbow. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.

Elbow fractures (Olecranon)

Falls are the most common causes of upper extremity fractures, including elbow fractures, resulting in stiffness, weakness, and persistent pain.
