Golfer’s Elbow

What is Golfer’s Elbow?

Golfer’s elbow is exactly the same as tennis elbow but involving different tendons. Here the tendons are found on the inside of the elbow which are strained resulting in pain. Again you do not have to play golf to get golfer’s elbow. Golfer’s elbow is less common than tennis elbow.

How we treat Golfer’s Elbow at Richmond Osteopaths

We aim to take the strain off the elbow joint and improve the efficiency of the surrounding muscles and joints. At Richmond Osteopaths, we will use a variety of techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation, acupuncture, muscle energy techniques and exercises.

Our advice

Ice and stretch. Return to activity sooner rather than later.
