Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
If you are diagnosed as suffering from golfer’s elbow, treatment options are usually conservative. At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, we provide expert advice to our patients with elbow injuries. Dr. Nic Gay or Dr. Masi Reynolds will carry out a full examination before recommending an appropriate treatment.
Rest, ice and anti-inflammatory medications are often effective for mild cases of golfer’s elbow. To help you recover quickly, Silicon Valley Orthopaedics may provide custom orthotics, such as a brace, to support the elbow. It is important to avoid activity that can prolong suffering from golfer’s elbow. You can gradually return to those activities once your doctor deems you fit enough to do so.
Serious intervention may be required for patients who continue to experience pain and other symptoms after a period of four weeks. You may have suffered a more severe injury that requires an examination from an experienced orthopedic surgeon.
