At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained and board-certified orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists have extensive education and training to treat elbow injuries and conditions, such as an elbow fracture or an overuse injury like tennis elbow. Since elbow conditions are often caused by overuse, wear and tear, or misuse of a tendon, many patients seek the care of a sports medicine specialist who is familiar with these common elbow conditions and injuries that often occur in sports. Although these conditions are often associated with sports, a patient does not have to be an athlete to experience them. For instance, tennis elbow is not necessarily caused by playing too much tennis. The same is true for a condition that causes tendon tears on the inside of the elbow known as golfer’s elbow, which means both sports medicine doctors and orthopedic surgeons can effectively treat these types of conditions.
