One of the most common causes of elbow pain is a repetitive injury, whether due to your day to day job or to the sports you play on a regular basis. This type of injury is often called ‘tennis elbow’, but there are other causes, such as ‘golfers elbow’, as well as fractures, torn ligaments, arthritis and trapped nerves. You might be surprised to learn that pain in your elbow can also be referred from your neck, in particular the area around C5 and C6. This referred pain can mean that treating your elbow won’t actually fix your problem, which is why it’s important to correctly identify the source of your elbow pain.
