The Injury
Tendinitis on the inside of the elbow is known as golfers elbow. These inside tendons are injured when the golf club makes contact with the ball or more commonly when the club makes accidental contact with the ground. The sudden strain causes microscopic tearing of the tendons similar to the process which occurs in tennis elbow.

“ Six months ago, after my last surgery with the other surgeon failed, I got in to see Dr. Halbrecht right away, and was able to schedule surgery the following week! My shoulder is soooo much better now! I feel like my nightmare is over. ”
