Advanced Treatment Options for Golfer’s Elbow
Radial Shockwave Therapy
Radial Shockwave Therapy is one of the advanced treatment options for golfer’s elbow available at Ravenswood Chiropractic in Chicago. Radial Shockwave therapy reduces pain by promoting the release of pain mediators, stimulating the repair of damaged tissues with neovascularization, and stimulating fibroblast activity and procollagen synthesis. Radial Shockwave Therapy can help reduce pain and stiffness in your elbow and improve the range of motion in affected areas by reducing both acute and chronic inflammation through mast cell degranulation, further promoting a localized healing response. Individual results vary; some individuals have experienced immediate relief from this non-surgical therapy for golfer’s elbow pain. Treatments last 5-10 minutes and are scheduled a week apart. Schedule a consultation to see if radial shockwave therapy can help you get back to doing activities you enjoy.
Class IV Laser Therapy
Patients with golfers’ elbow can experience significant relief from the pain and stiffness of this condition with Class IV Laser Therapy which is another advanced treatment option available at Ravenswood Chiropractic in Chicago. This laser does not cut or burn but is gentle and emits photon light absorbed by the surrounding cellular tissue. This initiates a series of therapeutic effects within the cells, increasing metabolic activity and improving nutrient transport. As a result, inflammation reduces, scar tissue and associated symptoms become reduced, and overall comfort is increased. Class IV Laser treatment is an ideal treatment to use with Radial Shockwave Therapy. Such an optimal healing environment may allow lasting relief from golfer’s elbow pain.

Chiropractic care is also an effective treatment for golfer’s elbow, as it can help improve your range of motion and decrease the intensity of symptoms. Our chiropractic physicians will assess your condition during your examination. One of the most important is a functional movement assessment which looks outside the box of your elbow to the movement patterns of your back, neck, shoulder, elbow, and wrist and corrects those imbalances, so pain will go away and stay away. Your chiropractic physician may perform extremity adjustments to gently manipulate joints back into the proper position, reducing inflammation and pain in chronic conditions. Additionally, our chiropractors at Ravenswood Chiropractic in Chicago may provide comprehensive rehabilitation exercises to help strengthen muscles to gain desired results from treatment.
Physical therapy is essential care for your golfer’s elbow treatment and recovery. During physical therapy sessions, your chiropractor will create a specialized program to target the muscles affected by your golfer’s elbow pain. This may include stretches and exercises to reduce inflammation and promote proper joint function. Additionally, we may recommend electric stimulation or ultrasound to reduce inflammation further.
For some patients, massage can also be an effective treatment for golfer’s elbow. During the massage, your licensed massage therapist will use specialized techniques to target problematic areas, such as the ligaments and muscles affected by the golfer’s elbow pain. Massage aims to reduce muscular tension and increase the range of motion in the affected joints. This type of treatment can help to relieve inflammation, improve joint function and reduce pain associated with golfer’s elbow.
Acupuncture is another form of treatment that can be very effective in treating golfer’s elbow and is very popular with our athletes. It has been used for thousands of years as an alternative method to relieve pain and discomfort. During an acupuncture session, our licensed Chicago acupuncturist will insert thin needles into specific points on your body to help reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness associated with golfer’s elbow. Also, acupuncture can help increase blood circulation, improving muscle healing and joint function.

Utilize Rest and Ice for Pain Relief
Taking a break from the game can be challenging, but it’s essential to rest your muscles and tendons if you have golfer’s elbow pain. In addition, applying ice several times a day can help reduce inflammation and minimize pain.
Use Compression Wraps to Reduce Swelling and Discomfort
Compression wraps are a simple but effective treatment that helps reduce pain and swelling associated with golfer’s elbow. The wraps will help apply steady pressure to the area, reducing discomfort and blocking nerves from communicating pain signals to the brain. This can provide relief from symptoms, as well as accelerate healing time. In addition, they are safe and easy to use, making them an ideal home treatment option for people with golfer’s elbow.
