Anatomy of My Elbow

Think of the elbow as a system comprising three crucial elements: the upper arm bone (humerus), the two bones of the forearm (the radius and ulna), and a network of ligaments. Together, they form the elbow joint, functioning somewhat like a hinge allowing for bending and straightening, similar to a door hinge. Additionally, muscles and tendons around the elbow act as the powerhouse, facilitating various movements and gripping actions, akin to the intricate mechanics of a pulley system. Understanding this system helps grasp the complexity involved in elbow movements and functionality.

I started working with Dr. Tyler this past winter and almost immediately began to see improvement in some shoulder/elbow pain I had been dealing with for quite some time. I put this off for far too long and wish I would have made the call sooner. I recommend to all my friends, family, and clients - go see Dr. Tyler! It’s not easy to find a PT who is not only highly knowledgeable but also very personable and truly caring. Thanks for your help, Tyler!
