Golfer's Elbow or Tennis Elbow

This condition is not limited to golfers or tennis players

If you are an avid golfer or tennis player, you are probably familiar with Golfer’s or Tennis Elbow.

Contrary to popular belief, this injury is not limited to golfers and tennis players! 

Any activity that uses these muscles such as baseball, typing on a keyboard, football, weight training, or even raking, can lead to this affliction.

Repetitive and constant movement that overuses the arm, forearm and hand muscles can cause golfer’s and tennis elbow. Typically these movements occur over a long period of time, and are not isolated to a one time golf outing or activity.

Caused by overusing the muscles and tendons that control your wrist and fingers, this condition causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, and may spread into your forearm and wrist. Tennis elbow is similar, but pain is identified as being on the outside of the elbow.

If you are experiencing pain on the inside, or the outside of your elbow, arrange an appointment so we can treat this injury.
