Don’t continue to suffer from golfer’s elbow in Mississauga. Let us help.
If you are suffering from pain on the inside of your elbow, there’s a very good chance it is golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis. This condition is generally caused by overuse and is similar to tennis elbow in both symptoms and treatment. Tennis elbow pain is generally on the outside of the joint. Golfer’s elbow is sometimes called “thrower’s elbow” as well because the repetitive motion of throwing can also cause the inflammation and tenderness associated with it.
When you call us at Heal Sports Medicine because you are suffering from golfer’s elbow, you can rest assured that we have the experience and knowledge needed to relieve your symptoms and help reverse the condition. If you have golfer’s elbow, it is important to:
- Protect your joint with appropriate braces
- Rest the joint as much as possible. If you are a serious athlete, this can be a challenge, but rest is the most important part of recovery. If you overexert the area before healing has occurred, it can become a chronic problem.
- Ice your joint as recommended by our sports medicine specialists.
- Compress the joint
- Elevate the joint
