Stiffness in the elbow joint most often occurs as a result of trauma. The elbow joint is made up of three individual joints connected to each other and the surrounding soft tissue.
The three bones that form the elbow joint are the humerus, the radius, and ulna. Their articulation surfaces are made of hyaline cartilage, which has a rubberlike consistency, reducing their potential friction when in motion. The bones are connected to each other by way of ligaments involved in the makeup of the joint capsule. This capsule is filled with synovial fluid, which further reduces friction.
The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) and the radial collateral ligament (RCL) are very important for the joint’s stability, as they strongly bind the humerus and ulna together. Another important one is the annular ligament. It secures the radial head to the ulna.
The elbow joint is additionally stabilized by the tendons of the biceps and triceps, which go over the front and the back of the joint respectively.
Reasons for elbow joint stiffness include traumatic injuries, infection, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, congenital disorders.
Symptoms include reduced range of motion when flexing the elbow and rotating the forearm. Depending on the cause, there may also be pain, swelling, and redness.
Conservative therapy consists of kinesiotherapy and taking medications, if necessary. If there’s no effect, surgical treatment may be necessary.
Prevention requires adequate rehabilitation for patients with a prolonged lack of mobility in the joint.
