What is Golfer's Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation on the inside of the elbow where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain may even spread into your forearm and wrist. Also, it’s important to know that Golfer’s Elbow isn’t limited to just golfers; anyone who performs repetitive wrist, forearm, or elbow movements can develop this condition.

What Are The Treatment Options For Golfer's Elbow?

Our comprehensive treatment options are designed to relieve your pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. These include:

  • Range of Motion Exercises/Physical Therapy: Custom exercises to strengthen and stretch the forearm muscles
  • Chiropractic Therapies: Incorporation of holistic approaches such as massage or chiropractic care, aimed at providing additional relief.
  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy: An ultrasound-guided technique that sends energy waves to damaged soft tissues in the elbow
  • Brace Support: Wearing a brace to reduce strain on the injured tendon
  • Steroid Injections: For severe pain, corticosteroid injections may be recommended
  • Medication: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve pain and reduce inflammation

We merge these treatments with innovative techniques and understanding care, aiming to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients without having to undergo surgery.

What Are The Symptoms Of Golfer's Elbow?

We’re here to help diagnose and manage your condition, offering strategies to reduce the impact of Golfer’s Elbow on your daily life. If you experience any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to reach out for a consultation:

  • Pain and tenderness. Usually felt on the inner side of your elbow, the pain sometimes extends along the inner side of your forearm. Pain typically worsens with certain movements
  • Stiffness. Your elbow may feel stiff, and making a fist might hurt
  • Weakness. You may have weakness in your hands and wrists
  • Numbness or tingling. These sensations might radiate into one or more fingers — usually the ring and little fingers


Recognizing these signs early can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your treatment.
