The elbow is a joint, which is the conjunction of three bones - the humerus, the ulnar, and the radius. These joints move together in two different ways. Flexing and extending (like doing bicep curls), and pronation/supination (like flipping the palm of your hand up and down). When these bones are misaligned through overexertion and overuse they cause irritation and inflammation.Tennis elbow is another common pain felt on the outside of the elbow. A form of tendonitis, it is caused by damage to the muscles and tendons connecting the forearm muscles (the ulna and radius) to the elbow joint.Golfer's Elbow is another subluxation of the elbow in which the ulnar misaligns and causes abnormal joint motion, pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments realign these joints and restore normal joint motion.
