Descrizione

This book describes Elbow Disorders, Diagnosis and Treatment and Improvised Treatment
The elbow joint is the area where three long bones (humerus, radius and ulna) connects,.
Tendinitis can involve the inner or outer elbow.
Bacteria can infect the abraded skin of the elbow.
The funny bone or ulnar nerve can be pinched at the elbow to produce numbness and tingling of the little and ring fingers.
The bone of the upper arm (humerus) connects the inner bone of the forearm (ulna) and the outer bone of the forearm (radius) to form a hinge joint.
The radius and ulna also connect in the elbow to permit for rotation of the forearm.
The elbow works to move the arm like a hinge (forward and backward) and in rotation (twisting outward and inward).
The biceps muscle is the major muscle that pulls inwards (flexes) the elbow hinge.
The triceps muscle is the major muscle that pushes outwards (extends) the elbow hinge.
The outer bone of the elbow is called the lateral epicondyle and is a part of the humerus bone.
Tendons are connected to this area which can be damaged or traumatized, producing inflammation or tendinitis (lateral epicondylitis, or "tennis elbow").
The inner part of the elbow is a bony prominence called the medial epicondyle.
A fluid-filled sac (bursa), which functions to decrease friction, overlies the tip of the elbow (olecranon bursa).
The elbow can be involved by inflammation of the tendons or the bursae or disorders that involve the bones and joints, such as fractures, arthritis, or nerve irritation.
Joint pain in the elbow can result from trauma or disease affecting any of these structures.
Tennis elbow is a disorder that causes severe, burning pain over the bone at the side of the elbow.
Lateral epicondylitis is the medical name for tennis elbow.
The pain happens from inflammation of the tendon that connects the tendon to the bony projection (called the epicondyle) on the outside of the elbow.
These tendons can be injured, especially with frequent repetitive motions of the forearm, such as using a manual screwdriver, washing the windows, or striking a backhand in tennis play.
Tennis elbow then causes inflammation of the tendons, producing pain over the outside of the elbow, sometimes with warmth and swelling but always with local tenderness.
The elbow keeps its full range of motion, as the inner joint is not involved, and the pain can be particularly observed toward the end of the day.
Repeated twisting movements or activities that strain the tendon normally produced increased pain.
These are lifting and throwing.
Medial epicondylitis is inflammation at the point where the tendons of the forearm connect to the bony prominence of the inner elbow.
This tendon can become stretched in a golf swing but many repetitive movements can injure the tendon.
Golfer's elbow is featured by local pain and tenderness over the inner elbow.
Olecranon bursitis
Olecranon bursitis is normally manifested with a swelling over the tip of the elbow while the range of motion of the inner elbow joint is maintained.
Olecranon bursitis (inflammation of the bursa at the tip of the elbow) can happen from injury or minor trauma as an effect of systemic diseases such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis or a local infection.
Fractures
The elbow bones can break (fracture) or dislocate into the elbow joint or adjacent to the elbow joint.
Normally, elbow fractures cause sharp pain in the elbow and X-ray is used to make a diagnosis.
Elbow Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder of the elbow joints in the human body
It is the most frequent form of arthritis, followed by rheumatoid arthritis and gouty arthritis.
