The anatomy of the elbow is relatively simple, there are three joints at the elbow allowing you to bend and straighten as well as turning the forearm over so the palm faces up or down.
Most commonly, dysfunction at the elbow manifests in pain on either side, often referred to as Tennis Elbow and the other side, Golfers Elbow. Pain at the funny bone could be related to Olecranon Bursitis. This kind of dysfunction can result from overuse but sometimes elbow pain can be a result of a problem with the shoulder or wrist.
Many people seek osteopathic treatment to address elbow pain quickly as osteopaths are skilled at helping prevent elbow pain from becoming a chronic, long-term condition.
