Common Causes of Elbow Pain

Trauma

If you are excessively gripping things like in golf or tennis with impact, the elbow could be injured from repetitive stress. The junction where the tendon and muscles join at the elbow is not that strong, and if there is repetitive trauma, that part will start to strain overtime. Also, if you happen to fall on your hand or wrist, the elbow will absorb most of the force. Depending on how hard the impact is, you can cause injury to the elbow.
