An injury to the elbow can have a terrible affect on your ability to move your arm properly, making it difficult to look after your own basic day-to-day care needs such as washing, dressing and preparing food. If you have seriously injured your elbow, you may require lots of help from family and friends, and if you are unable to work, that can have a drastic impact on your income.
Common elbow injuries
The most common injuries to the elbow include:
- sprain or strain
- bruising or soft tissue injury
- tennis or golfer’s elbow
- trapped nerve, e.g. cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS)
- repetitive strain injury (RSI)
Common accident circumstances that may result in an elbow injury
The circumstances where this might happen include:
- tripping on pavements and uneven surfaces
- slipping on wet floors and ice

It can require surgery and take many months, and even years, to make a full recovery from a serious elbow injury.
