Main Forums Body Forum Elbow Posterior Impingement Syndrome

  • Posterior Impingement SyndromePosterior impingement of the elbow joint usually occurs due to the repeated extension of the elbow. This syndrome may lead to the development of bone spurs (extra bone that forms on the edge of an existing bone) and inability to extend the elbow.

    Repetitive throwing motions force the bony tip of the elbow, called the olecranon, to repeatedly jam into the fossa (pit at the back of the elbow). This motion causes wear and tear, as well as inflammation of the tissues at the back of the elbow joint. Baseball pitchers and tennis players are often at risk for this condition due to the repetitive extension of the elbow required in their sports.
