A problem with your elbow may show up as a tingling sensation or numbness that radiates down your arm. Conditions like elbow fractures, elbow spurs, arthritis, and aging can create irritation inside the elbow joint, and tendons or bursa (fluid-filled sac on the tip of the elbow) can become inflamed.
An elbow injury can make it difficult to use your arm, which can affect your ability to work, drive, write, and perform normal, daily activities. The pain will get better under the care of a qualified elbow specialist. Choose Tucson Orthopaedic Institute, where we have several fellowship-trained elbow experts to help you today.
