What are the treatments for elbow injury which is not curing?

I had an elbow injury that has been nagging me for several months. My forearm muscles have weakened and it has a constant numb pain from my elbow thru my forearm and even effects my hand when I work this often. When I play golf the pain is terrible. I stopped playing 2 months ago. The pain is still her today.

I have gone through your query but before i answer please tell me more about elbow injury like was there any fracture? or was a soft tissue injury?
You could be having what we call golfer's elbow and if you have numbness associated with it in the ring and little finger then ulnra nerve neuropathy.
Take care and do reply for any further clarification .
