What is Golfer’s Elbow?
Also know as medial epicondylitis. This condition does not just affect golfers. Any activity that requires repetitive movements of the wrist will place excessive stress on the muscle and tendon resulting in tendonitis and possible scar tissue formation. The pain usually begins on the inside of the elbow (at the bump called the medial epicondyle), and may spread down the forearm, resulting in weakness into the hand.
