Your elbow joint is more than a simple hinge. Through a number of muscles and tendons, the elbow allows you to bend (flex) and extend your arm and rotate your hand. The extensor muscle group is on the outside (lateral) of your forearm and helps turn your wrist palm up. The flexor muscle group is on the inside (medial side) of your forearm and helps turn your wrist palm down. Tendons attach the extensor/flexor muscles to the epicondyles of the elbow. The epicondyles are two bony knobs on either side of your elbow. The biceps and triceps muscles help to bend and extend your elbow.
