What is elbow impingement syndrome?

The elbow joint is a hinge joint that is comprised of the humerus, ulna, and radius bones. Cartilage is also found within the joint covering the ends of the bones. Repetitive hyperextension of the elbow can lead to inflammation and swelling of the joint in the back of the elbow leading to elbow impingement syndrome.


What are the symptoms of elbow impingement syndrome?

  • Pain or soreness in the back of the elbow
  • Elbow swelling
  • Perceived weakness with elbow movement

What treatment options are available?

If the symptoms persist, it is recommended to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yoon. A comprehensive evaluation will be performed and a treatment plan can then be discussed based on the findings.
