Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

If you are experiencing increasing soreness on the inside of your elbow that is not responding to rest, ice, and over-the-counter medications, you should have your elbow evaluated. You should also seek evaluation if you are experiencing any numbness, tingling, or weakness, or you have had a major injury to your elbow with loss of motion, deformity, or swelling. Your care provider will evaluate you, determine if additional testing is warranted (e.g., X-rays, ultrasound, MRI scan, nerve testing), and help you decide on the best course of treatment.
