Golfer's elbow is a condition characterized by pain in the inner elbow. This area (called the medial epicondyle) is an attachment point for many muscles in the forearm and can become irritated with repetitive use or strain. This condition is not limited to golfers and can be associated with any repetitive use of the wrist and hand.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS:
- Tenderness in medial elbow
- Decreased range of motion of elbow/wrist
*Numbing and tingling also possible with irritation in this area*
HOW CAN PHYSICAL THERAPY HELP?
PT can help through the use of pain-relieving modalities, manual therapy, and stretching to restore pain-free mobility and performing strengthening to make the area more resilient.
