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. If the joint "locks" when attempting to move it you may have torn a small portion of the cartilage and it is catching in the joint space. Apply ice and try to adequately rest the elbow. Try an antiinflammatory if needed for pain. ...Read more

Hi, when I straighten my arms, my elbows click and numbness. Tendonitus or arthritus? Possibility

Varies: There is a term called crepitance, which is where a joint can click and pop secondary to early arthritic conditions. But there are also tendon and ligent conditions that can cause clicking in the elbow as well. Finally, numbness suggests at least some neurological involvement. Don't hesitate to be seen and a detailed exam and appropriate studies will usually give you a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

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?

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

My both elbow joints are clicking while doing any triceps workout or bench press/ shoulder press or pushups for 1 yr. I have no pain..Is it normal?

Normal clicking: Clicking in a joint can be due to lots of different things. Nearly 99.9% of the time though if it isn't painful you aren't doing any damage. Clicking can be caused by tendons slipping over the joint or a bony prominence or the joint capsule rubbing on the joint or tendons. If it becomes painful you need to back off. ...Read more

Fell asleep with head on desk, forehead on top of back of hand. Woke up and couldn't move from elbow down for a few minutes. Wrist clicking. Damaged?

Arm troubles: Hello, it sounds like while you were fast asleep, you were compressing your ulnar nerve. This happens easily since the nerve travels close to the elbow. This is only temporary problem and should resolve with a minute or two. As far as the wrist clicking, i would give that a day or so also. Sounds like the positioning of your arm was the problem. ...Read more

Stop playing tennis: Elbow pain would usually be caused by repetitive movements of the joint, causing tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon), hence the name, "tennis elbow." so reducing activities that exacerbate or cause pain should eliminate the problem. There are other causes of elbow pain that should be ruled out, if you cannot localize or discover a cause on examination. See your doctor to make sure! ...Read more
