Golfer's elbow is a term used to describe pain located on the inside of the elbow. The medical term is medial epicondylitis. Despite what the term suggests, you do not have to play golf to suffer from this condition. It is a common repetitive strain injury which is caused by activities that involve repeated gripping or throwing. It is far less common than tennis elbow, but it can be just as debilitating. It often becomes a chronic problem, despite long periods of rest.
Our physiotherapists offer a wide variety of treatments proven to help, including specific massage, ultrasound, acupuncture, interferential therapy, exercise advice and cortisone injections. If a combination of rest, anti-inflammatory medication and basic physiotherapy does not resolve the problem, a cortisone injection is the most appropriate treatment. A cortisone injection often provides significant and immediate relief.
