A dislocated elbow occurs when the upper arm bone separates from the two bones that form the forearm. It’s common in young children. It usually occurs after a high-impact injury, like a fall. You may need to get the elbow pushed back into place. And you’ll have to keep it still with a sling for a few weeks.
Sharp pain in the elbow can be caused by overuse injury, acute injury, or nerve compression located in the elbow or neck. Common causes of sharp outer elbow pain include tennis or golfer's elbow, and elbow dislocation, or an elbow sprain.
