Elbow Pain Info - Osteoarthritis of the Elbow

In order to understand this condition it is important to understand the anatomy and function of the elbow. Please read Elbow Pain Info's section on basic elbow anatomy . For additional background information on the biomechanics of the elbow please read Elbow Pain Info's section on basic elbow biomechanics .

What is osteoarthritis?

The word arthritis means inflammation (swelling) of a joint. Osteoarthritis is the term used to describe damage to articular cartilage inside joints. Osteoarthritis, also called "wear and tear" arthritis is the most common type of arthritis.

What is osteoarthritis of the elbow?

Articular cartilage is the smooth coating that covers the surface of the bones inside the elbow. Articular cartilage also cushions and helps lubricate the joint surfaces. In osteoarthritis the articular cartilage begins to degrade. Over time the articular cartilage can thin or form cracks. Tiny pieces of cartilage may come loose and float inside the elbow, further irritating the joint.

An x-ray may be ordered to determine how much joint damage there is. Other tests like bone scans or MRI's are not usually required.
