At The Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Dr. Vipul Nanavati provides expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of elbow conditions, including golfer’s elbow. Dr. Nanavati works with his patients to provide the best treatment options available to help relieve their golfer’s elbow symptoms.
Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) causes pain on the inside of the elbow due to damaged tendons and muscles that control the wrist and fingers. Repetitive movements of the wrist and fingers can injure these tendons and muscles. Golfer’s elbow can develop by participating in repetitive motion activities such as golf, throwing sports, racket sports, or improper weight training. Golfer’s elbow is different than tennis elbow in which pain occurs on the outside of the elbow.
Symptoms of golfer’s elbow include:
Golfer’s elbow can be diagnosed by taking a medical history and conducting a physical exam. X-rays may be taken to rule out other possible elbow, wrist and hand conditions such as arthritis or fractures.
Treatment options for golfer’s elbow include:
If symptoms persist for more than a year, surgery may be a treatment option in order to repair the affected tendons by removing the damaged tissue.
