Anatomy of The Elbow

What causes an elbow injury?

Dehydration: The muscles are comprised of at least 70% water. Dehydration causes muscle fatigue, strain, tendonitis, and other disorders of the movement system.

Poor Nutrition: If you eat too many “empty” calories that don’t contain the nutrients your body needs is a primary cause of injuries and disorders of the movement system.

Inflammation: Inflammation causes heart disease and movement system disorders. Avoid too much sugar and fat to decrease the chance of inflammation.

Fatigue: Sleep and rest are vital for the health of your body.

Poor Fitness: The lack of physical fitness increases the risk of disease and injury.
