The Elbow

elbowThe elbow is the hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the forearm which allows the hand to be moved towards and away from the body. The elbow joint is a synovial hinge joint, the most common type of joint in the human body. The elbow region includes prominent landmarks such as the olecranon (the bony prominence at the very tip of the elbow), the elbow pit, and the lateral and medial epicondyles. The medial epicondyle is the protrusion that protects the ulnar nerve, more commonly known as the funny bone.
