“Golfer’s Elbow” (Medial Epicondylitis)

Updated: May 8

Another common injury seen with tennis, but with a different sport name is called “golfer’s elbow” or medial epicondylitis. Similar to lateral epicondylitis, it is painful condition at the tendons of the inner forearm muscles by the inner part of the elbow. This can present in the same manner of symptom progression as found with “tennis elbow,” and can be equally frustrating to deal with.

.

Same Things to Pay Attention To:

1. Racquet choice

2. String selection

3. Swing path

4. Grip size

5. Timing

.

Some Exercises to Address Local Tissues:

1. Eccentric strengthening of wrist flexion



2. Forearm pronation/supination with shoulder stabilization





Recommendation:

Get checked out by a physical therapist, figure out the causes, and get a clear game plan on how to get back to playing without pain at the elbow.
