O que é uma entorse de cotovelo?

Uma entorse de cotovelo é uma lesão em um ou mais ligamentos ao redor do cotovelo. Os ligamentos do cotovelo são faixas resistentes de tecido que conectam os ossos do braço e do antebraço ao redor da articulação do cotovelo. Uma entorse de cotovelo geralmente ocorre quando o braço sofre um alongamento repentino e forte durante uma atividade física ou um acidente.
