This is an entrapment of the anterior interosseous nerve which is a branch of the median nerve.

Injury Image

Axillary Nerve Injury

Injury to the Axillary nerve usually occurs as a result of a direct impact to the outer arm,

Injury Image

Biceps Contusion

A biceps contusion is a bruising of the Biceps Brachii muscle in the upper arm. This occurs due to a direct impact to the area,

Injury Image

Biceps Tendonitis

Biceps tendonitis results in pain and inflammation of the biceps tendon as it inserts into the inside of the elbow.

Injury Image

Bruised Elbow

A bruised elbow or elbow contusion usually occurs as a result of a fall or impact to the elbow.

Injury Image

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is caused by compression on the nerve and may also be known as ulnar nerve compression or hitting your funny bone.

Injury Image

Dislocated Elbow

Elbow dislocations are the second most common dislocations in adults, behind shoulder dislocations.

Injury Image

Distal Humerus Growth Plate Fracture

A distal humerus plate fracture is a fracture to the growth plate at the end of the upper arm bone which

Injury Image

Elbow Bursitis Students Elbow

Elbow bursitis also known as Students elbow or Olecranon bursitis is the inflammation and swelling of the bursa which protects the bone at the back of the elbow.

Injury Image

Elbow Hyperextension Injury

Hyperextension injuries occur when the arm is over-straightened. This causes damage to the soft tissues, especially at the front of the elbow.

Injury Image

Forearm Splints

Forearm Splints is similar to shin splints in the lower leg, although far less common. It occurs in those who repetitively use their wrist, contracting the forearm muscles.

Injury Image

Golfers Elbow

Golfer's elbow causes pain on the inside of the elbow and the muscle attachments just below the bone are usually very tender to touch.

Injury Image

Humerus Fracture

A humerus fracture is a break in the upper arm bone. This may be anywhere in the bone, from the neck of the humerus near the shoulder, to the distal end at the elbow.

Injury Image

Medial Elbow Ligament Sprain

The medial collateral (MCL) ligament of the elbow is situated on the inner elbow and helps to provide stability to the joint.

Injury Image

Medial Elbow Pain

Medial elbow pain is pain on the inside of the elbow and can arise from a number of causes.

Injury Image

Median Nerve Injury

Myositis Ossificans is a growth of bone which develops in a muscle, following a contusion. On impact, the muscle is crushed against the underlying bone,

Injury Image

Myositis Ossificans in the Arm

Myositis Ossificans is a growth of bone which develops in a muscle, following a contusion. On impact, the muscle is crushed against the underlying bone,

Injury Image

Olecranon Fracture

The olecranon is the large bony prominence which can be felt at the back of the elbow. A fracture occurs after an impact such as falling onto the elbow,

Injury Image

Osteochondritis Dissecans in the Elbow

Osteochondritis Dissecans is a fragmentation of the cartilage and sometimes the underlying bone within a joint.

Injury Image

Pronator Teres Syndrome

Pronator teres syndrome is an entrapment of the median nerve, where it passes between the two parts of the pronator teres muscle in the arm causing pain,

Injury Image

Radial Head Fracture

The radial head can be felt on the inner side of the forearm, just below the elbow. A fracture occurs after a fall onto an outstretched hand or may be associated

Injury Image

Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Radial nerve injuries often have similar symptoms to tennis elbow. Any tingling or numbness suggests a nerve injury, as may neck stiffness or pain.

Injury Image

Radius Fracture (Broken Forearm)

A broken forearm is usually a fracture to the radius bone, although may be a fracture of the ulna, or even both.

Injury Image

Supracondylar Fracture

A Supracondylar Fracture is a break to the lower part of the Humerus (upper arm bone), just above the elbow. It is most common in children.

Injury Image

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow causes pain on the outside of the joint and it is usually very tender to touch just below the bone. It is caused by repetitive wrist movements.

Injury Image

Tricep Strain

The triceps muscle is found at the back of the upper arm. A strain is a tear of the muscle, usually caused by a forceful contraction to straighten the arm or prevent rapid flexion.

Injury Image

Triceps Tendon Inflammation / Strain

The triceps tendon is located at the back of the elbow. Inflammation can develop due to repetitive tasks

Injury Image

Ulna Fractures

An Ulna Fracture is a break in the Ulna bone, which is one of the two bones in the forearm. A fracture may occur from a sudden, direct trauma or impact,

Injury Image

Ulna Growth Plate Fracture

Long bones such as the ulna in the forearm grow from both ends at regions known as the growth plates or epiphyseal plates.

Injury Image

Ulna Nerve Contusion

The ulnar nerve runs down the inside of the elbow. If you knock the inside of the elbow you can get a numbness or buzzing down the forearm into the forth
