Common Causes of Elbow Pain

When individuals experience discomfort in their elbow, several common causes should be considered. These include repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, inflammatory conditions like bursitis or arthritis, and nerve compression issues such as cubital tunnel syndrome. Trauma-related injuries such as fractures or dislocations can also lead to elbow pain. Understanding the specific nature of the discomfort is crucial for identifying the underlying cause and determining the appropriate course of treatment.

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, a prevalent cause of elbow discomfort, manifests as pain on the outer side of the elbow. It typically results from repetitive motions resembling those used in swinging a racket, common in sports like tennis and activities such as playing the piano.

Golfer's Elbow

Golfer's elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is characterized by pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow. This condition typically develops due to repetitive stress and overuse of the muscles and tendons that control wrist and finger flexion during golfing.


Tendinitis is a chronic condition characterized by inflammation of the tendons around the elbow where they attach to the bone. Pain associated with tendinitis worsens with movement and develops gradually over time.


Arthritis affecting the elbow can be either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, both of which lead to inflammation within the joint and subsequent cartilage breakdown. Osteoarthritis typically develops over time as wear and tear on the joint's cartilage cause it to deteriorate, exposing the underlying bones to friction and damage. This results in pain, swelling, and stiffness in the elbow joint.

The Common Symptoms of Elbow Pain

While the exact symptoms will vary from condition to condition, there are a few common symptoms that people might notice. These include:

Pain that generally worsens with movement
Redness of the joint itself
Elbow stiffness
The joint space might start to swell​
An overall restricted range of motion
