I'm starting to think maybe now it's a good thing I only started playing in 2013! Hope it feels better soon and sounds like you've gotten some good advice, but did I read CBD oil anywhere? I keep hearing about how great it is for everything from us 'older' folks ... ever tried that?

I have used CBD oil a lot since injuring my shoulder last year and I am a big believer. I use the roll on stick 500mg

I had lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) about 10 or so years ago. I used many different kinds of braces, creams, and cortizone injections. Nothing helped in the long run. Eventually, it required surgery. The tendon was torn. I have been pain free ever since. The prognosis for and treatment of such an injury is influenced by how the injury occurred. Mine was due to repetitive overuse. It sounds like yours was induced by a trauma? If so, you are more likely to achieve relief without surgery. However, and most people don't like to hear this, you MUST rest the injured area. Depending on your age, this might mean several weeks or several months. Your body will heal on its' own time frame. You can't rush healing. If you choose to continue playing, you will likely injure the area more severely and require surgery to resolve. I suggest you get ONE cortizone injection and then let your elbow rest for a month. The cortizone may/will stop the inflammatory response to give you some relief. But you must resist the temptation to go back at it too soon, since you'll feel better. Think long term! If you give it some time, it'll be more likely that you can play far into the future without a problem. However, there is a reason you got this in the first place. If it was caused by a trauma, then avoid that and you'll be good. If it is overuse, then you may need to adjust how much you play. I hope you get better. God Bless you.

Kudos to the good advice from both mdames and lary1!

If you go on a small sabbatical from golf to heal; and you later want to ease back into it...a little game I call 'hot shot' is for you. It can allow you to exercise only the shortest and most delicate parts of your short game(includes putting), and compete with others too.

Thanks everyone. I'm not sure how I did it. Don't think it was any one particular moment or swing. Just sort of noticed it hurting around the 11th hole at Candlewood that day. Bought a freeze-able gel bead sports wrap today, and I also have the tennis elbow brace I got last week. Gonna use those and monitor for a bit. Thanks again.

Mark,

In addition to the info I had posted earlier in this thread, I would also recommend adopting a battery of exercises to help speed up the healing process. In my case, I found that exercising my hand, wrist, and forearm definitely kick-started/accelerated the recovery time.

Although you'll most likely experience some discomfort...at least initially...the exercises will increase blood flow into the affected area, serve to break up any scar tissue, and build some strength. Stretching the hand and wrist, squeezing a rubber ball, performing wrist/forearm curls and rotational forearm exercises with light weights, and using a flexible hand-exerciser bar should get you on the right track.

It goes without saying, but don't overdo it; if your discomfort level says to back off, then follow your body's cue. Starting out slowly and gradually increasing your repetitions is the best guidance I can offer. Relief is attainable but be prepared for it to take some time; this is a condition that does not go away in a couple of days and one that can recur without warning.

Should you need any additional info, research 'Lateral and Medial Epichondylitis'.

Good luck...

As mentioned about, I had this in the early 90s, and after wearing that 1" thick adjustable brace and tightening it up about 1" below the elbow, this went away and has never come back. I am not a fan of going under the knife, so IMHO please try this and wear it all the time, even when you pick up a coffee cup, it will take a little time but it works. Only take it off to shower. Take 2 weeks off golf and then you should be able to get back to it. When I had it i never stopped bowling it worked that well, and never went under the knife. Your body just needs a little rest and it will heal itself with a little support.

I'm having elbow pain on the lateral side also and am going the route of Prolo and PRP treatments. Last year, I had a knee injury that MRIs read as an ACL tear and a couple of arthroscopic docs recommended ACL reconstructive surgery. I didn't really believe them because I did not have the classic ACL tear symptoms. I went with weekly Prolo shots, monthly PRP and physical therapy and happy to say that my knee is back to 100% and has never felt better.

Me and a buddy of mine also have elbow pain, though in my case I can also sometimes feel it in my shoulder. If the pain gets a bit too much I pop some pain killers and relax my arm for a couple of minutes and then I do some light exercises.
