Elbow Injuries Clinic

The main conditions affecting the elbow are overuse of the muscles and tendons on the inside and outside of the elbow.

Our multidisciplinary team works with you to explore the best solutions for repairing, strengthening and rehabilitating your elbow joint.

Our clinic typically cares for:

  • Tennis elbow, which occurs when the muscles of the arm and forearm are repeatedly overused, causing small tears in the tendons
  • Golfer's elbow, which is characterized by pain on the inside of the elbow and is often caused by improper mechanics in young overhead throwers or during a golf swing
  • Elbow sprains and ulnar nerve irritation--symptoms include pain on the inside of the elbow with overhead throwing or other overhead activities; irritation of the ulnar nerve may lead to a tingling sensation in the little finger
