Your elbow is comprised of three bones called the humerus (or upper arm bone), radius, and the ulna (both radius and ulna make up your forearm). The three bones allow your joint to move, reach, pull and throw. With the complexity including the ligaments, bones, and muscles within your arm, this area is prone to inflammation and irritation. Problems with your elbow can cause considerable pain, reduced mobility, limit your activity, and prevent you from completing daily tasks and enjoying what you love.

The elbow specialists and physical therapists at New Mexico Orthopaedics can help you address your symptoms and create a treatment plan that will minimize pain and long-term limitations of your elbow function.
