The elbow joint is a complex hinge joint formed between the end of the humerus in the upper arm and the top ends of the ulna and radius bones in the forearm. The elbow allows for the flexion (bending) and extension (straightening) of the forearm relative to the upper arm, as well as rotation of the forearm and wrist.
An extensive network of ligaments helps the elbow joint maintain good stability and an ability to resist high mechanical stresses, however it is susceptible to injury, particularly during falls, impact injuries and overuse injuries and is a common site of pain in many people.
