How Does the Elbow Joint Work?


If you suffer from elbow pain it is very useful to understand how the elbow works.

The elbow joint is the hinge joint located in the center of the arm. It is a complex joint made up of three separate relationships; the humero-ulnar joint, the humeroradial joint and the superior radio-ulnar joint.

Each of these separate joints is comprised of two of the three bones of the arm; the humerus, the radius and the ulna. The bony projection at the rear of the joint, sometimes known as the funny bone, is the olecranon.

The elbow joint is considered to be the most stable joint in the human body, but is also often the site of injury and cause of pain.
