Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is a painful condition that affects the inner side of the elbow. Despite its name, it can occur in individuals who don't play golf. This condition is typically caused by repetitive wrist flexion and gripping activities, leading to inflammation and strain on the tendons that attach to the medial epicondyle of the humerus (the bony bump on the inner side of the elbow). Symptoms include pain, tenderness, and weakness in the forearm and wrist. Symptoms may last anywhere from a few weeks to many months.

How we treat Golfer’s Elbow at STRONG.

At STRONG., we recommend seeking help through physiotherapy or chiropractic as a first step. Treatments are individualized to your needs and preferences but typical sessions may include exercise or rehabilitation focusing on the elbow and upper limb, relative rest and activity modification, tissue release of tight muscles, joint mobilization/manipulation, or acupuncture.
