The elbow is surrounded by many structures crossing over from the upper arm to the lower forearm. Anatomically, these include muscles, tendons, connective tissue (fascia), ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. Elbow pain can be a manifestation of dysfunction involving one or more of these structures. 

Pain at the elbow can also be misleading in that the pain source can actually be somewhere outside the elbow region completely. Examples include a pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy), referred pain from a shoulder region trigger point or carpal tunnel syndrome, to name a few. A thorough history of symptoms is very helpful to help determine the likely diagnosis and development of an effective treatment plan for elbow pain.
