What is Osteoarthritis of the Elbow?
The elbow consists of three bones and 2 joints. The cartilage covering the joint is susceptible to the “wear and tear” of activity and trauma. The resultant breakdown of the cartilage surrounding the joint is termed arthritis, which is also commonly associated with bone spurs. This condition typically affects middle-aged patients that engage in strenuous manual activities or sports, such as weight training, boxing, and rock climbing.
Symptoms of a Osteoarthritis of the Elbow?
- Pain in or around the elbow joint
- Stiffness/pain with movement
- Weakness in hand or wrist
- Tingling or numbness in forearm and/or fingers
- Limited movement of the elbow
Causes of Osteoarthritis of the Elbow
Osteoarthritis usually develops later in life, with no specific cause. There are, however, several contributing factors including:
- Age-related wear and tear
- Joint conditions
