Stop Elbow Clicking
My elbow was moderately hyperextended in a basketball game four days ago. Now my elbow makes a mild clicking/popping when bending. What should I do?
Elbow Antics: You most likely injured the cartilage surface of this complex hinge joint and the associated inflammation is causing the clicking or popping that you appreciate.

Diagnosed with elbow tendinitis and have clicking when extending. MRI w/o contrast came back normal. Can a MRI w/o contrast find loose body in elbow?
Consider arthrogram: Loose bodies are not the only source of clicking in the elbow, but are a consideration. They are hard to detect in the elbow on an MRI sometimes, and giving IV contrast is not helpful. An arthrogram, in which contrast is injected into the elbow joint itself and then followed by either a CT scan or MRI scan is usually the test if choice for loose bodies. ...Read more
