Although the elbow joint is much less prone to damage caused by wear and tear, it can still happen and when it does, it can be very painful and might severely limit your mobility. It can also be very difficult to perform day to day home and work activities. And yes, an elbow injury or pain can make it impossible for you to perform many kinds of exercises and sporting activities.
The most common cause of elbow pain is overuse. After all, many kinds of jobs, sports and hobbies require repetitive movements of the hands, wrists and arms. These repetitive movements can put a constant strain (plus the wear and tear) to your elbow. Another cause of elbow pain or discomfort is due to an accident or an awkward movement.
