Golfer’s Elbow Treatment – Surgical and Nonsurgical Options for Residents of Houston, TX

Golfer’s elbow is a common condition that requires comprehensive treatment for the pain and discomfort that it tends to cause. Caused by inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow, this condition is most frequently seen in golfers, but can also affect tennis players and other individuals who frequently flex and rotate their wrists.

At Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Houston, Texas, we offer both surgical and nonsurgical therapies for golfer’s elbow and other similar injuries. Our orthopedic specialists are committed to helping patients find relief from their symptoms to get them back to the activities that they love.

When it comes to golfer’s elbow treatment, nonsurgical therapies such as anti-inflammatory medications and rest are often quite effective. Other potential treatments include:

  • The application of ice and heat
  • A counterforce brace
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Prescription painkillers
  • Tenex (a minimally invasive procedure that uses ultrasonic energy to break down scar tissue)

Most people with golfer’s elbow are able to manage their symptoms without turning to surgery. However, there are some instances in which stiffness, pain, muscle weakness or tingling persist despite conservative care. In these instances, Advanced Orthopaedics may recommend surgery.

The board-certified and double-board-certified surgeons at our Houston orthopedics center have extensive experience with a variety of procedures, including those designed to treat golfer’s elbow. Our team practices both minimally invasive and traditional techniques, carefully evaluating each patient’s unique diagnosis to determine the best approach. Not only are we concerned with achieving a positive outcome, but also helping our patients recover quickly and with few complications.
