Elbow Pain Causes
There are several different conditions that can lead to debilitating elbow pain, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis, a disease that causes chronic inflammation in joints
- Osteoarthritis, which can develop when the cartilage in a joint wears away
- Post-traumatic arthritis, which can result following a fracture or damage to a tendon or ligament
- Chronic joint instability, which can also result from ligament damage
