Elbow pain in your inner elbow or your elbow joint can be very painful. The elbow is the joint that connects the humerus bone in the upper arm with the radius and ulna bones in the forearm. Cartilage, ligaments, and tendons complete the composition of the elbow and allow it to connect to muscles that enable movement of the arm.

Types of elbow pain include strains and sprains, dislocation, fracture, bursitis, and tennis/golfer’s elbow (tendinitis), and radial or cubital tunnel syndrome.
