Golfers Elbow / Medial Epicondylitis

Elbow pain can be nagging and irritating during common and/or sport activities. Two common diagnoses are “golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow.” Golfer’s elbow refers to inner elbow pain and tennis elbow refers to outer elbow pain. The names above refer to the sports that typically overuse certain forearm muscles leading to irritation of the tendons but having one of these injuries in not always related to playing these sports. For example, consistent typing or texting can lead to “tennis elbow.” Physical therapy will focus on releasing tension throughout the affected muscle, increasing strength to the surrounding musculature, and discuss ergonomic or recreational variables that can be adjusted to prevent further pain.
