Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
Medial epicondylitis, or golfer’s elbow, is soreness or pain on the inside (medial) side of the upper arm near the elbow. This injury is not limited to golfers as it may occur in tennis players, throwers, construction workers and others that repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers. Symptoms include elbow pain that gradually worsens, pain that may radiate down the arm, and/or a weak grasp. The goal of treatment is to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
