- Shoulder pain conditions: Common causes of shoulder pain include rotator cuff injuries, shoulder impingement, muscle tears, inflammation of the bursa (bursitis), frozen shoulder, joint instability, tendonitis, humeral fractures, and arthritis.
- Elbow pain conditions: Common elbow conditions include golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis), tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), cubital tunnel syndrome (very similar to carpal tunnel syndrome except that the nerve compressed is at the elbow, causing slightly different symptoms) and also fractures of the elbow.
- Wrist pain conditions: The wrist is a common area for injuries whether it be due to a traumatic injury or an overuse injury. The best known of these is carpal tunnel syndrome, an overuse condition that compresses a nerve in the wrist and causes pain, numbness, tingling, and possible weakness. Other causes of wrist pain include tendonitis, fracture, dislocation, sprain, ganglion cyst, and arthritis.
