Whether you’re suffering from a weak elbow or any other type of elbow injury, we have the ideal treatment for you.
Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.

The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony section on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

Symptoms:
The pain associated with tennis elbow may radiate from the outside of your elbow into your forearm and wrist. Pain and weakness may make it difficult to:

Shake Hands
Turn a Doorknob
Hold a Coffee Cup

Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s elbow is pain and inflammation on the inner side of your elbow, where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist.

Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is similar to tennis elbow, but it occurs on the inside, rather than the outside, of your elbow.

Symptoms:
Pain and tenderness on the inner side of your elbow. Sometimes the pain extends along the inner side of your forearm.

Stiffness. Your elbow may feel stiff, and it may hurt to make a fist.

Weakness. You may have weakness in your hands and wrists.

Numbness or tingling. Many people with golfer’s elbow experience numbness or a tingling sensation that radiates into one or more fingers – usually the ring and little fingers.
