Treatment for Golfer’s Elbow & Tennis Elbow
Elbow pain can significantly impact your daily activities and sports performance. At Performance Sport Care, Dr. Douglas Cancel and his team specialize in treating two common sources of elbow pain: Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow. Our clinic is renowned for its unique treatment protocols, developed through extensive research and practical experience, aimed at addressing the root causes of these injuries for lasting health outcomes.
Understanding Golfer’s Elbow
Golfer’s Elbow, or Medial Epicondylitis, typically stems from an overuse injury affecting the forearm’s muscle-tendon attachments. This condition is prevalent in golfers and can also occur in individuals engaging in specific exercises like pull-ups or weight training. Symptoms include tenderness in the inner elbow and pain during wrist flexion and forearm pronation.
Our Approach to Golfer’s Elbow
At Performance Sport Care, we offer a proven protocol for treating Golfer’s Elbow. Many patients experience significant improvement within 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Our approach is particularly effective for cases without complex tendon pathology or other medical conditions. We encourage those suffering from this condition to schedule a consultation to explore our treatment options.
Tennis Elbow: Beyond Cortisone Injections
Tennis Elbow, or Lateral Epicondylitis, is often misunderstood as primarily an inflammatory condition. However, it usually involves mechanical stress and degeneration of the forearm’s muscle-tendon units. A notable study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association highlighted the limited effectiveness and potential risks of corticosteroid injections for Tennis Elbow.
A Better Solution for Tennis Elbow
Our clinic offers a specialized treatment protocol for Tennis Elbow, addressing the key muscular and mechanical factors involved in this condition. Many patients report positive outcomes within 3 to 5 sessions, especially those without advanced tendinosis or other medical complications. We invite individuals struggling with Tennis Elbow to consider our unique approach for effective relief.
