Cornerstone Rehab and Spine
in League City, TX
Golfer’s and Tennis elbow are much the same issue, the only difference is where the injury is located: either in the medial or lateral portion of the elbow. The medical term for this injury is medial or lateral epicondylitis. The inflammation of the tendons surrounding the medial or lateral elbow. Often times this injury occurs due to repetitive motion such as hammering. The muscles can become over worked and injured. Once the muscles are sprained, they become stretched and pulled and painful.
Resting can help ease the pain, but doesn’t always get rid of the problem when the repetitive activity is resumed. Breaking up scar tissue that forms allows the area to heal properly. Strengthening the musculature in the forearm will also decrease the probability of the injury returning.
This type of issue can often be fixed in just a couple visits. Dr. Gomach has helped patients who often have been "dealing" with the issue rather than treating it. Treatment will be tailored to your needs as you get the chance to spend time with the Doctor one on one every visit.
Cornerstone Rehab and Spine can ease your discomfort and help you return to your normal life again, keeping you on the field, track, road, or even the course .
