Common Causes of Elbow Pain

Golfers Elbow keeping you from hitting the links?

Golfer’s Elbow is a painful condition that causes pain on the inside of the elbow. It’s similar to Tennis Elbow, which causes pain on the outside of the elbow. Both golfers and tennis players repeatedly clench their fingers and can overuse their wrists, which is where these two irritating conditions originate.

Golfer’s Elbow or Tennis Elbow don’t have to keep you from participating in your favorite sports. Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics help athletes recover the healthy use of their arms so they don’t have to sacrifice their skills to an ongoing painful condition. Using a combination of medication, rest, and physical therapy, most cases of Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow can be treated without surgery.

Non-surgical treatments for elbow pain

Treatments for elbow pain vary greatly depending on the type and severity of your condition. Many times, elbow injuries are due to overuse, so lifestyle changes can make a big difference to elbow pain sufferers. If your job or hobby includes repetitive motions of the elbow, such as painting, playing tennis, working as a dentist or dental assistant, or playing an instrument – rest and medication might be all your need to feel better. Physical therapy can also help to teach you how to perform the movements you need for your job or hobby without injuring your elbow.

Elbow surgery

Though we always strive to provide the most conservative care possible, sometimes, elbow surgery is the best way to treat elbow pain. If your condition necessitates elbow surgery, one of our orthopedic elbow surgeons will guide you through the process and help you feel totally confident about the choices you are making for your health.

Many options for elbow surgery are outpatient, minimally invasive and do not include a long recovery time. Sometimes the word “surgery” can sound scary, but don’t let that keep you from living the pain-free life you deserve. With modern advancements in elbow surgery technology, our surgeons are able to provide positive results with less after-surgery pain and recovery time than ever before.
