The Elbows

More than a dozen muscles cross at elbow joint, and it's also a fairly stable joint because of all the tendons and ligaments that help those muscles move the arm bones. However, because we spend so much time lifting and moving objects with our hands and arms, it's possible to injure the elbow through sheer inattention.

If your exercise involves throwing or boxing, you're at risk for overuse injuries and trauma from the explosive power. Tennis, golf, and weight lifting can cause elbow problems. And again, everyday actions in the workplace turning wrenches, constant typing, performing massages all can lead to overuse injuries at the elbow.

Next we're going to talk about how you can help your clients prevent some of the most common injuries. But before we do that, let's review what you've learned so far. Go to work and used what you learned have a good year.
