Back of the elbow pain
Pain on the back of the elbow can be from a direct blow, referred or an injury to the area or surrounding structures. Triceps brachii muscle injuries such as a strain or tear will have pain at the back of the elbow if low enough. The tendon of the triceps can also cause back elbow pain if an acute or chronic injury as occurred. An olecranon bursitis where it protects the back of the elbow can elicit pain in the area.
