Elbow Problems

Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture

The distal biceps tendon inserts on the radial tuberosity.  Long-standing micro tears from repetitive damage may lead to a loss in structural integrity of the tendon, which in turn can lead to a catastrophic failure of the tendon.

Tennis Elbow

Degeneration of a tendon can lead to a loss of appropriate blood supply to repair the tendon.  This can prevent or delay the normal repair process.  The lateral or outer portion of the elbow is susceptible to repetitive trauma during tennis swings.

Golfer's Elbow

Degeneration of a tendon can lead to a loss of appropriate blood supply to repair the tendon.  This can prevent or delay the normal repair process.  The medial or inner portion of the elbow is susceptible to repetitive trauma during a golf swing.

Elbow Sprain

A fall on an out stretched arm may cause an injury to the elbow such as a dislocation or a sprain to the ligaments around the elbow.  Repetitive trauma to the region, such as with throwing or pitching a baseball can also lead to these injuries.

Elbow Region Fractures

The elbow region is comprised of the distal portion of the humerus and the proximal portions of the radius and ulna.  Trauma imparted to this area may lead to a fracture or break of the distal humerus, radial head, radial neck and olecranon.
