  • Swelling and bruising at the site of injury.


Elbow fractures usually occur when falling on a straight outstretched arm or when a blow to the elbow area.


X-rays are usually used to diagnose elbow fractures.


Treatment of elbow fractures may include a cast, physiotherapy, or in some cases, surgical intervention.


To prevent elbow fractures, it is recommended to observe safety measures during sports or physical activities, as well as to consult specialists at the first signs of pain in the elbow area.
