Golfer’s Elbow

Repetitive and excessive use of the elbow can cause an injury to the tendons attached to the joint. Medial epicondylitis, or golfer’s elbow, is an injury to the tendons on the inside of the elbow. While common for golfers, other sports and activities can also cause this injury, resulting in elbow pain and limited arm mobility. If you have golfer’s elbow and want pain relief, our experienced medical team at Medici Spine & Pain can help you recover and get back to enjoying the activities you love.

Golfer’s elbow is caused by excessive or repetitive force on the tendons that control the bending of the wrist toward the palm of the hand. This motion is common when swinging a golf club, throwing a baseball or lifting heavy items with handles (suitcases). When too much stress is put on the tendons, it results in pain on the inside of the elbow. Golfer’s elbow results in stiffness in the elbow and weakness in the hand or wrist, making it difficult to grip.

Treatments for Medial Epicondylitis

If you have golfer’s elbow and want to restore mobility and relieve the pain, there are treatments to help you heal your injury faster. Physical therapy can strengthen your forearm and wrist, helping your arm recover and is also useful in preventing future injuries. To help with pain, medication management or joint injections may be used as part of your treatment plan. Our physicians will create the right treatment plan to help you regain mobility and strength in your elbow, wrist and hand while minimizing your discomfort.

If you have suffered an injury to the tendons in your elbow and need treatment, come see us at Medici Spine & Pain. We have clinics in different locations in the Atlanta area for your convenience. Contact us today to schedule an exam and consultation with one of our experienced pain doctors to begin treatment for golfer’s elbow.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
