Causes of Elbow Injury and in Mobility

Many things can cause elbow pain and reduce mobility. Among the most common is tendinitis which is an inflammation or injury to the tendons that anchor to bones at the elbow. Generally, tendinitis is a sports related injury often experienced by golfers and tennis players. Repetitive strenuous activities that involve the elbow can also result in tendinitis.
