The elbow assists every movement of the arm in order to perform your basic daily activities. Persistent elbow pain will significantly disrupt your quality of life. Tennis Elbow – aka– Golfer’s Elbow is a condition that does not necessarily result from sporting activities. Any twisting or turning motion can cause elbow pain and make it difficult to maintain a steady grip with your hand.
Elbow pain is caused by repetitive motions and overuse of the arm. When your pain persists and interferes with your quality of life, you need the best elbow doctor. The best elbow pain treatment begins with a correct diagnosis. Treatment will only relieve you of your discomfort when the root cause of your elbow pain is diagnosed properly. An improper diagnosis can also worsen the underlying cause of your elbow pain.

Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are two common pain sources cause by overuse and repetitive motion.
Tennis elbow causes pain on the outside of the elbow from inflamed tendons – lateral epicondylitis. Repeatedly hitting backhands on the tennis court will cause tennis elbow.
Golfer’s elbow – medial epicondylitis – causes painful, inflamed tendons on the inside of the elbow. Medial epicondylitis is due to poor technique in hitting a golf ball.
