What to do if I play baseball and have golfers elbow?

Be treated. There are a number of treatment options available. First and probably most important is to confirm that the diagnosis is correct as there are multiple potential causes of medial elbow pain in a baseball player. That being said, bracing, therapy, ultrasound, injections can all be used to try to treat the person nonoperatively. Making sure your warm up and mechanics are good is also important. Read more...

Dislocated my growth plate in right arm so I dislocated my growth plate at my elbow about 7 years ago just started playing baseball this year and my arm feels weird after a good competitive catch my arm at the elbow feels like its done an can't throw anym

There . There are a number of growth centers around the elbow that appear and close in a predictable sequence: capitellum, radial head, medial epicondyle, trochlea, olecranon, then lateral epicondyle. A fracture can occur at any of these locations. While you said it happened 7 years ago, you do not state how old you are now. One type of elbow injury is the supracondylar humerus fracture (occurs just above the elbow across the whole bone) which typically occurs under age 7. This pattern of fracture can partially close the growth plates, causing the humerus to grow at an angle. When that angle is toward the inside of the arm, it is called cubitus valgus. For most people, it is a cosmetic deformity. However, with time, it can stretch the ulnar nerve (funny bone) as it passes under the medial epicondyle (bony knob on the inside of the elbow). This can cause "delayed ulnar nerve palsy" where the nerve doesn't work properly. This can progress to weakness and clumsiness in the hand. The nerve can be surgically decompressed and moved to protect its function. Depending on your previous injury, this may or may not be what is happening. However, whenever you have a "dead" sensation that keeps happening, you should have if evaluated. An orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine or a hand surgeon can help you decide what to do. Read more...

Played tennis and in outfield. What caused my elbow pain and how do I fix it?

It depends. If the pain is medial and goes into your ring and little finger, it's probably cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a pinched nerve on the inside of the elbow. If its the outside of the elbow, it may be tennis elbow syndrome. Both should be treated with rest and anti-inflammatory medication, but if it keeps hurting see a doctor. Read more...
