This can be a very painful and disabling injury to suffer, and can put your arm out of action until it has healed.
An injury to your elbow can happen in many ways, and there are lots of different types of injuries that you can suffer to your elbow, for example:

- Fractured elbow;
- Tennis or golfer’s elbow; and
- Squashed or trapped nerve.
