Cause and Treatment of Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow

Orthopaedic & Spine Center


 Dr Robert Snyder, Orthopaedic Specialist with Orthopaedic & Spine Center in Newport News VA


Dr Bob Snyder deals with two common conditions of the elbow, which typically present as tenderness and pain, either on the inside of the elbow (Golfer’s Elbow)  or on the outside (Tennis Elbow). In both cases the site of the inflammation is the location where the tendons attach at the elbow joint, either on the inside or outside of the joint.

Dr Snyder also outlines the major treatments for these two painful conditions, typically including prescribing anti-inflammatory medication, icing and stretching, injections, and in extreme cases outpatient surgery to relieve chronic pain.
