What is Golfer’s Elbow?

Your forearm tendons insert on the inside (medial) and outside (lateral) parts of your elbow. Your forearm tendons are important because they help you grab and grip objects. Overuse can cause golfer’s elbow—irritation and inflammation of the tendons that insert on the medial side of your elbow. Common sports and activities that may cause your golfer’s elbow are tennis, golf, weightlifting and using a hammer.

What are golfer’s elbow symptoms?

Your golfer’s elbow symptoms will not be associated with a specific injury or accident. Symptoms you should be aware of are:

  • Decreased elbow and forearm strength
  • Pain and tenderness on the inside of the elbow

You should rest and ice your elbow if you experience symptoms. If symptoms continue, please make an appointment with an appointment with the Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Specialists at Active Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.

WHAT ARE MY TREATMENT OPTIONS?

Your Active Orthopedics & Sports Medicine specialist will prescribe a customized nonsurgical treatment plan to decrease your symptoms. Any of the following may be included in your plan:

  • Immobilization
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
  • Physical therapy
  • Platelet-rich plasma injections

After your injury heals, you may wear a supportive brace to take pressure off your tendons and ensure your symptoms do not return.

We have helped thousands of patients with golfer’s elbow return to an active and healthy life using the latest advancements in non-surgical and surgical procedures

This is the best Doctor I’ve ever been to for chronic disk problems in my back. He reads his own MRI’s and such, went to a top US Medical school and the surgical procedure I had with him couldn’t have gone better. The staff is efficient and very friendly.
