Swelling : Swelling and loss of motion can be the result of trauma. That can mean a severe bruise or fracture. Swelling can also radially occur with infection, a joint problem such as gout or arthritis, which will also rapidly add to difficulty moving if swelling occurs rapidly.

The elbow is very sensitive to loss of motion when swollen and even a small hairline fracture in the radial head, a bone on the elbow, if not treated properly will result in difficulty extending the elbow fully. ...Read more
