Golfer and Tennis Elbow
Spring time is in full force and, here at StemCell ARTS, we often see patients who have worn their bodies out participating in their favorite outdoor activities. Golfer and tennis players are common athletes that our physicians come across. Golfer’s elbow is inflammation that causes pain and discomfort where the tendons of the forearm connect to the inside of the elbow. Tennis elbow is similar to Golfer’s elbow, but differs in that the pain occurs on the outside of the elbow. These injuries are abundant among both professional and non-professional athletes. These injuries can also be seen in patients who do not engage in either golf or tennis.
Treatments Provided at StemCell ARTS
Usually, the treatments for these conditions are easily resolved with an injection of cortisone that helps resolve the inflammation.
