This is very common for people who perform repetitive tasks. Tennis players (Tennis Elbow), golfers (Golf Elbow), desk workers, factory workers, etc. that do the same motion over and over with their elbow can experience pain, stiffness, and soreness in their elbow.
Any time there is an impact on your elbows, such as a fall, car accident, or contact sport, you can injure the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones in this area. The pain can be immediate, or it can appear later down the road and linger for long periods of time.
