Golfers Elbow


Elbow Pain

Golfers elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is a common overuse injury in athletes that rely on gripping and forceful motions of the elbow and forearm. It results from repetitive stress and strain on the tendons and muscles that attach to the inner elbow, leading to pain and weakening of the tendon. The way that we handle this is by using a multi-disciplinary approach to treat it, focusing on reducing pain, while simultaneously focusing on building resilience within the tendon. This usually includes a mix of shockwave therapy, other manual techniques, and strategic loading to address not only the tendon, but other functional deficits in the upper extremity and neck. In order to maximize recovery, we often work closely with patients to modify their technique and training routine, as well as provide injury prevention education so that you can stay active throughout and come back stronger than before.
