Common causes of golfers and tennis elbow

Elbow pain caused by golfers or tennis elbow is a very cause of musculoskeletal pain and can cause huge disruption with normal daily activities and occupation. Golfers and tennis elbow are more so caused from repetitive overuse of the muscles of the forearm. This often leads to signifiant pain and reduced function. Most cases of golfers or tennis elbow pain are as a result of inflammation of the common forearm tendons as the insertion on to the outside and inside of the upper arm bone, this is know as insertional tendinitis, or more specifically epicondylitis. Severity can vary, depending on cases of mild to moderate to severe.

  • Swelling

  • Referred pain into the forearm

It is extremely important to be aware of more sinister causes of elbow pain, like inflammatory arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis…) or gout. Other important symptoms to be aware of are prolonged joint stiffness, multiple joint pain/swelling, fever, altered sensation or tingling down the arm, heat,  fatigue, weight loss and night pain.

Golfers elbow and tennis elbow are very common conditions that can come from many different forms. Ultimately, we look to reduce pain, improve function and prevent the issue from returning. At the Dynamic Clinic elbow tendinitis is a very common issue we see and treat many times every day. We always explain to patients how important it is to treat elbow tendinitis early, to treat and prevent any degenerative changes of important tissues. Like many musculoskeletal conditions, the longer it goes on untreated, the more difficult it can be to treat. 


Where possible, we like to enforce conservative treatment and management of elbow pain and tendinitis. But in some cases, extra resources may be required. We have built ourselves a very good reputation of delivering high quality regenerative treatments for tennis elbow and golfers elbow. The most popular being P-PRP injection treatment, in which patients travel from all over the UK to see us for treatment (further information can be found on the ORTHOBIOLOGICS link below). If individuals are showing signs of advanced injury or disease then we may discuss the option for an MRI scanning, to get diagnostic clarity of what it is that may be causing the issue. 

If a cause of your elbow pain is suspected to be of an inflammatory or rheumatological origin, then you will be asked to provide a blood test and lab panel to check for raised inflammatory markers - ESR, CRP and TNFa, and maybe immunological makers.

Referral for Specialist Imaging or Private MRI Scans

At the Dynamic Clinic we can provide ultrasound imaging to look for signs of swelling, inflammation or tissue damage. However, in some cases a more in-depth analysis may be required with the assistance of our radiology colleagues. If a private scan is considered, we will put in a local referral to our Imaging Centre in Solihull. You will then be booked in within 5-10 days. Following your scan, the report will be completed by a Musculoskeletal Radiologist. This report will then come back to the Dynamic Clinic and will we then discuss with you then best course of treatment for your compliant. 

In cases where the disease progression is too severe, or the problem is not getting better, then we may refer to our trusted orthopaedic colleagues for surgical opinion. 

Tennis Elbow & Golfers Elbow Assessment

To help you with your elbow pain and injury, we firstly look to provide a functional assessment to see what may be causing the issue. If you have been suffering with elbow pain or injury which has not been improving and is impacting on your function, it is recommended to see a musculoskeletal professional to get a full assessment. This will gain information to make a diagnosis and provide the best treatment and management strategies to resolve your pain, speed up your injury and get you back to best function again. At the Dynamic Clinic, elbow pain and tendinitis is one of the most common issues we see many times every day. Our experienced musculoskeletal clinician, Mr Adam Whatley will be able to provide assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of elbow injury and pain conditions from sport injuries to occupation overuse.

Due to modern living, occasionally elbow pain and tendinitis (golfers elbow and tennis elbow) can become a chronic pain condition, stubborn to treat. In these cases other treatment options are also available. Injection therapy for golfers elbow and tennis elbow is very commonly used to treat the stubborn cases and can provide good success in pain releif. Injection therapies often involve cortisone injections or platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.​

Cortisone (steroid) Injection Treatment for Tennis Elbow & Golfers Elbow

Individuals who have been suffering with these injury conditions who have not responded fully to conservative treatment and management may be advised to consider a cortisone injection to improve pain. However, it is important to appreciate that steroid injections are not successful in all cases, and if successful are often only short-lived. Also, they can have a degenerative effect on the local tissue if repeated. Although may be good for inflammation, cortisone injections are not routinely used for repeated elbow pain management due to increased tolerance to steroid and tissue weakening.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment for Tennis Elbow & Golfers Elbow

Hugely growing in popularity, PRP injection treatment is deemed a safe natural treatment, commonly used in many different cases of musculoskeletal pain and injury. PRP treatment uses platelets from the patient’s blood to promote and facilitate healing and repair in damaged and injured tissue. Increased scientific literature from evidence-based clinical trials are increasingly showing how PRP injection treatment is safe and effective for the treatment of elbow tendinitis, also having superior benefits over cortisone, particularly for long term progress.
