The elbow is a hinge joint made up of 3 bones – the humerus, radius, and ulna. The bones are held together by ligaments to provide stability to the joint. The muscles and tendons help move the bones around each other while performing various activities. Damage to any of the structures that make up the elbow joint can cause elbow pain.
