Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Athletes involved in sporting activities can suffer acute injuries or can develop overuse injuries that affect the elbow. Falls onto the outstretched hand, sudden loading, or direct trauma can result in elbow dislocation, fracture, or tendon rupture. Athletes involved in sports that involve repetitive motion, such as throwing, hitting balls, or lifting weights repeatedly, can develop chronic overuse of supporting ligaments and musculotendinous structures around the elbow.
