Elbow pain can result from a condition that has developed over time, such as osteoarthritis, or from a recent injury, such as a fall. The onset of osteoarthritis, a condition involving the degeneration of joint cartilage, often occurs in people with a history of elbow injuries. The most common cause of pain in the elbow can be related to a recent injury. Elbow injuries commonly occur during:
- Sports or recreational activities
- Work-related responsibilities
- Home improvement projects
Elbow pain can also be caused by overuse. Overuse injuries of the elbow, such as tendonitis, tennis elbow, or golfer’s elbow, lead to inflammation, which can cause considerable pain in the elbow and forearm.
