ELBOW DIAGNOSTICS AND TREATMENTS

Three bones come together at the elbow joint: the humerus or upper arm bone, as well as the ulna and radius, who form your forearm.

these bones have cartilage at the end, and they hold their place with ligament, while tendons connect your bones to the muscles.

Anything that affects these parts, as well as the nerves will cause pain and can become an injury.
