Golfers Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow (medial elbow pain) is very similar to Tennis Elbow, however the pain is felt on the inside of the elbow rather than the outside.

It is often characterised by pain and tenderness on the bony bit on the inside of the elbow, as well as a general weakness in the wrist and hand, and generally develops over time, as opposed to having an acute onset.

Golfer’s Elbow is caused by repeated wrist flexion or bending the wrist, particularly against resistance (such as holding a golf club). It can also occur from throwing actions, and can also be an occupational hazard in manual jobs, such as carpentry, or even from working at a computer workstation. It tends to occur after a period of repeated overuse.
