Golfer's elbow is a painful syndrome that is due to inflammation of the tendons at the elbow. This inflammation is the result of overuse of the forearm muscles, in addition to restrictions in the neck and shoulder area. Don’t let the name fool you — only 5 per cent of people who suffer from golfer's elbow do so because of a sport. In fact, most cases of golfer's elbow is caused by repetitive, one-sided movements when working in a job, such as a carpenter or a painter, or during leisure activity such as gardening.

Effective Treatment for Elbow Pain

At Shepherd Health, we use active release and massage therapy for patients with pain involving the elbow. We also use a combination of treatment modalities to effectively treat pain. Cold laser therapy is used to treat elbow pain on a cellular level. Cold laser therapy helps cells to produce more energy, in turn promoting healing. As light energy is transformed into biochemical energy in the body, the blood supply to damaged cells is increased and the healing process is stimulated. Shockwave therapy and nerve flossing are two of the many treatments we use for elbow pain, here at Shephard Health.
