Non-operative medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) treatment

Medial epicondylitis, or golfer's elbow, is an inflammation of a tendon on the inside of your elbow. It can usually be treated without surgery using rest, different motions in sports, medication, exercise, and steroid injections.

Golfer’s elbow can be caused by golf, but it can also be caused by other repetitive motions. If your sport or daily activities cause pain, you might need to stop doing them for a while or change how you do them to treat your golfer’s elbow.

Other methods of treating medial epicondylitis are anti-inflammatory medications, stretching, and physical therapy exercises. Sometimes a splint or a brace is used.

If other methods don’t work, your doctor may give you a steroid injection.
