Acute elbow pain
Acute elbow pain is pain in the elbow which comes on suddenly. The athlete is likely to know the exact point in time when the injury occurred. Chronic or long term elbow injuries can be classed as acute if they flare up or are acutely painful such as an acute episode of golfers elbow. Acute elbow pain can be due to an olecranon bursitis where there is inflammation or a fracture of either the radius or ulnar.
