The elbow is a complex joint that plays a critical role in daily life, as it allows for a range of arm movements. Due to this, elbow osteoarthritis may affect a person’s quality of life.

Osteoarthritis is a common condition affecting about 1 in 4 adults in the United States. Although it can occur in any joint, it does not usually affect the elbow.
