Dislocation of Elbow Joint

A dislocation of the elbow occurs when the bones of the elbow move out of place compared with the bone of the arm. Elbow dislocations are commonly caused by hard falls where the arm is extended completely, as well as motor vehicle accidents. Symptoms include: severe pain in the elbow, swelling, and an inability to bend the arm.
