Hello I need help figuring out what to do with my elbow pain. I had injured my left elbow after a boxing March I had last November of 2014. After the boxing match my elbow was in so much pain it was about a 9 on a scale from 1-10. It was swollen I could not move it at all. I just let it rest and iced it. I had went to the doctor a couple of days later hoping it would get better. I had got x-rays, doctor said I just had swollen tissues. I went threw therapy for about 2 months. I was already feeling good. I started boxing again in june. I just recently hurt it again as of July 21 2015. I need help to figure out what else to do. Should I go see a specialist for elbow or try and get a mri

Shoot, I don't know anyone near there. You need to see a physician who completed fellowship training in sports medicine. If you find the name(s) of sports medicine doctors you are considering, I can tell you whether they have the right training.
