Golfers Elbow

Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondilytis)

Golfers elbow is a similar condition charactersied by pain and tenderness on the inside of the elbow. It occurs as a result of 'inflammation' (tendinosis) of the attachment of the flexor tendons of the wrist ( these tendons bend the wrist forward) and of the fingers, at the lower and inner portion of the arm ( the inner 'bump' of the elbow near the 'funny bone').

Medial epicondylitis is less common than Lateral Epicondilytis. Although it may affect Golf players, any other reason of excessive and repetitive wrist flexion may cause the disorder.

Treatment is similar to Tennis elbow.
