Golfer's Elbow or Tennis Elbow?

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

How's everybody doing today, it's Dr. Carlock at Village Family Clinic talking about a condition that's more popular this time of year I guess being nice out there playing sports.

So generally elbow pain. There's really two types, golfer's elbow and tennis elbow. So it's really on the two different parts: the lateral aspect and the medial aspect of the elbow. This is generally golfers, this is generally tennis. I just say that because those types of players get more of that pain in those areas from overuse so the muscles ligaments stuff like that. So people come in with some elbow pain. We can definitely help treat it here at the Clinic.

We've got a bunch of different ways to help you feel better. We could do Myofascial release, loosen up the muscles, break up some adhesions in there. We can do different stretches and exercises and we also have a bunch of different therapies that are really good to help with those elbow problems like the ultrasound machine which helps again break up adhesions and reduce some swelling and inflammation within the muscle and joint capsule.

We also have the laser which is another more kind of intense version of that and stem and all sorts of stuff. So if you're having elbow pain you don't know where to turn. Come on here, we'll help you feel back to normal.
