Golfer's Elbow | Oklahoma Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

Golfer’s Elbow

Gofler’s elbow can make spending time on the course nearly impossible. The inflamed tendons that cause golfer’s elbow can be remedied through a variety of treatments including physical therapy, surgical and non-surgical procedures. Don’t try to swing through the pain, let OCO get you back on par.

Gofler’s elbow, like tennis elbow is a form of tendinitis affecting the insertion point of the tendon onto the bone. Due to the force of the muscle, this insertion point can become inflamed. The pain associated with golfer’s elbow is usually located at the elbow joint and on the inside of the arm. The pain can also be experienced when trying to grip objects or when shaking hands.

Treatment for golfer’s elbow initially begins with conservative measures which may include activity modification or a change in lifting mechanics, medications, use of a brace, or therapy. Surgery may be required if conservative care does not improve a patient’s symptoms and the patient continues to have difficulty with daily activity.

Dr. O'Brien is just a really cool guy. He makes you feel like he is one of your friends every time you come into the office.
