Golfer’s Elbow
& Tennis Elbow

The answer is simple- overuse, which is why bakers, cooks, plumbers and carpenters suffer from the tendon ailments as well.

The telltale symptom of Golfer’s Elbow is a nagging pain in the inner elbow, often with radiating pain along the forearm. The cause is believed to be increasing the grip on the club. It can also occur among tradespeople who work with their hands and weight lifters. Stiffness and weakness may also occur, and sometimes people feel tingling into the hand that may mimic carpal tunnel syndrome. Golfer’s Elbow is caused by an increased gripping motion that stresses the tendons and muscles of the forearm.
The symptom that best defines Tennis Elbow is an annoying pain on the outer side of the elbow that shoots down to the forearm. The extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendon may be partially torn, or may have been completely torn and is growing back on its own. You may also feel pain when you move your wrist up and down while keeping the elbow steady.
The long term success of Dr. Greenberg’s patients is attributed to a specialized approach to the examination process. Deemed “The Greenberg Method,” this diagnostic approach not only looks into the area of damage and pain, but also evaluates the mechanics and structure of the bone and joints related to the area of the pain. In Dr. Greenberg’s experience, he has never seen a golfer or tennis elbow patient who has not had an undiagnosed abnormality in the movement of the shoulder and scapula. This abnormal movement contributes to early wear of the elbow. In executing The Greenberg Method, Dr. Greenberg often discovers that conditions experienced in one area of the body are often rooted in a different area that hasn’t been treated before. While an isolated joint treatment ignores physiology and the evaluation of movement, The Greenberg Method’s full-body examination produces a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan. In return, the patient experiences a greater reduction in pain and improvement in function, which helps them get back on their feet to resume their daily routines, pain free.

Dr. Greenberg may recommend the unique Greenberg Method for your elbow. It includes Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Infusions and Stem Cell Treatments. Dr. Greenberg has found PRP treatments to be effective for regenerating worn elbows. The treatments activate the body’s natural regeneration system which includes components like stem cells, pericytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and macrophages which work together to regenerate soft tissue and strengthen the entire elbow.

Before any treatment, Dr. Greenberg and his team will review the optimal treatment plan designed to help you improve your elbow’s functionality. You may require several treatments performed every few weeks.

The Greenberg Method is an excellent choice for people who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to surgery. TGM has lower infection risks, shorter recovery times and is opioid-free.
