Our orthopedic doctors and sports medicine specialists will diagnose the severity of your injury and develop the best treatment plan for your needs. If you are an athlete, we may recommend surgery to help you get back in the game.

Overview

Our treatment will depend on the extent of your injury and your pain level. We may simply have you rest your elbow and apply ice and a compression bandage, or put your arm in a brace and prescribe pain and anti-inflammatory medication. Your rehabilitation may include physical therapy to increase your strength and flexibility. If you are active in sports, we may recommend surgery to repair or rebuild your tendon.
