What is golfer’s elbow?

Golfer's Elbow is an overuse injury that affects the tendons on the inner side of the elbow, near the bony bump called the medial epicondyle. Despite its name, this condition isn't exclusive to golfers; it can occur in anyone who engages in repetitive gripping or wrist flexion activities. Common causes include sports such as golf, tennis, and weightlifting, as well as occupational tasks that involve repetitive hand movements.

Diagnosing golfer's elbow

Our experienced healthcare professionals are skilled in diagnosing golfer's elbow through a thorough evaluation of your medical history, a physical examination, and imaging tests such as X-rays or ultrasound. Accurate diagnosis is crucial for developing a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition and needs.

Comprehensive golfer's elbow treatments

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a comprehensive range of advanced treatments to effectively manage Golfer's Elbow and help you regain pain-free functionality. Our approach includes:

Conservative treatments

In many cases, Golfer's Elbow can be managed conservatively. This may involve rest, the use of elbow braces or splints, and physical therapy to strengthen the affected muscles and improve flexibility.

Medication management

Our pain management specialists may prescribe anti-inflammatory medications or corticosteroid injections to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP injections are an innovative treatment option that uses your body's natural healing properties to promote tissue repair and reduce pain.

Minimally invasive interventions

For cases that don't respond to conservative treatments, minimally invasive procedures such as ultrasound-guided needle tenotomy or percutaneous needle release may be considered to address the affected tendon.

Surgical interventions

In rare cases, when conservative and minimally invasive options are not effective, surgical intervention may be recommended to repair or release the damaged tendon.
