Sport and workout injuries to the elbow happen when an athlete falls down or collides with a hard object – like a skateboard fall to the concrete with an outstretched hand. More commonly, elbow pain is due to repetitive motions and overuse. When your elbow pain doesn’t heal up properly with rest and home remedies, you need a top sports doctor.
Elbow Pain Doctor
A top sports doctor can get you back in the game quickly and help you to prevent recurrent elbow injuries due to many factors.
- Overdoing a workout
- Poor form
- Not being in good enough condition
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.
Medial Collateral Ligament Injuries
Baseball players often suffer from a torn ulnar collateral ligament known as the medial collateral ligament in the elbow. This ligament plays an important role in stabilizing the elbow in many other throwing sports.
- Javelin throwers
- Racket ball players
- Ice hockey players
- Also – violin players!
