The elbow, although not noticeable in terms of function at first glance, is a very important part as it is the link between the shoulder and the hand. In fact its close link to the shoulder can actually be the cause of some injuries if the shoulder is not functioning well.
It is important to assess the range of movement in all directions as a stiff elbow will mean the hand cannot function optimally to do most tasks. Strength is also very important. Elbow pain or injury can also be due to deficits in the shoulder or hand so a physiotherapist will also assess this.
If pain is caused by tennis or golfers elbow, it could be due to poor equipment, technique or repetitive stresses, therefore it is important to address these factors during assessment.
