Golfer's elbow may seem insignificant when it first starts but it is essentially an injury created by overuse to the muscles that are responsible for flexing your wrist and your fingers and your elbows. Usually it is the medial epicondyle which is the bony bump that we all have on the inside elbow where it attaches to the muscles.

If you feel pain on the epicondyle you should immediately put some ice on it which is something that you should do for 15 to 20 minutes up to four times a day in order to stop the inflammation. You may feel more secure about your recovery from this by adding a splint or a strap so that you can stop any pulling on the tendon.

If the pain is constant there is a good chance that your doctor will prescribe NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) to reduce the inflammation more effectively like ibuprofen or even a simple aspirin if you are in pain. Another alternative is also a corticosteroid injection or a painkiller like Lidocaine.

After all inflammation has gone and there is no more swelling you can start by stretching all the muscles and the supporting connective tissue slowly and without any resistance and only later use training bands. There are many different exercises that can directly isolate the triceps however you need to also rotate.

It is the rotation that needs to be strengthened and the experts recommend that you should not return to playing golf until all the soft tissue has completely healed and is pain free. Supportive grip strength is recommended at this will increase the strength of your connective tissue.

If you are still experiencing pain after 2 or 3 months then you should re-visit your doctor with the consideration of surgery. Removing the damaged tendon and reattaching it will improve the blood flow that can speed up the healing process and solve the problem.
