Elbow Pain

Elbow and forearm pain is commonly associated with playing sports, heavy manual work such as gardening, lifting or moving and also trauma related to a fall. Elbow pain is commonly associated with

  • Tendon problems such as Tennis or Golfer's elbow
  • Simple sprain of the joint
  • Bursitis around the elbow
  • Repetitive strain injury following sports or manual work

There is no reason why you can't do your routine work or leisure activities because of elbow pain.

When do I see my GP?

  • If you have had a fall and you think you have a broken bone
  • If your elbow pain increases with general exercises such as walking or running it may be associated with a heart condition
