Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylalgia)
People that suffer from golfer’s elbow are often involved with racquet sports or golf. As with tennis elbow, they may overuse the forearm, traumatize the elbow by hitting several “fat” golf shots, or have poor swing technique.
Pain at the inner aspect of the elbow and reproduction of symptoms with resisted wrist flexion are common.
Activity modification, anti-inflammatory medications, ice, and progressive stretching and strengthening will relieve most cases. Surgery is only an option in recalcitrant cases.
