Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow
Tennis elbow and golf elbow are pain conditions that emerge as the result of overuse, strain, or injury to the elbow joint. Tennis elbow frequently leads to symptoms of pain along the outside of the elbow, as it is related to strain caused to the lateral epicondyle. Golf elbow most commonly leads to pain along the inside of the elbow, as it is associated with strain to the medial epicondyle.
Treatments for these conditions can range from more minor interventions, such as rest or oral analgesics, to more interventional approaches, including steroid injections. Most cases of tennis and golfer’s elbow are effectively treated using non-surgical techniques.
