Golfer’s Elbow Treatment

Overview

Golfer’s elbow is a condition that involves pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow. Despite its name, it can affect anyone who performs repetitive wrist and arm motions, not just golfers.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of golfer’s elbow include pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow, stiffness in the elbow joint, weakened grip strength, and discomfort when bending the wrist or making a fist.

Causes

Golfer’s elbow typically develops due to repetitive stress or overuse of the forearm tendons and muscles. This leads to small tears or inflammation in the tendons that attach to the small bone on the inside of the elbow.

Risk Factors

  • Engaging in activities involving repetitive wrist or arm movements, such as golfing, tennis, or weightlifting.
  • Improper technique or equipment used during sports or physical activities.
  • Sedentary lifestyle or sudden increase in activity level without proper conditioning.
  • Age-related changes that affect tendon strength and flexibility.
  • Occupational factors such as repetitive typing or using vibrating tools can strain the forearm muscles and increase the risk of developing golfer’s elbow.

Prevention

  • Warm up before engaging in physical activities to prepare muscles and tendons for movement.
  • Use proper technique and equipment during sports or recreational activities to avoid excessive strain on the elbow.
  • Gradually increase the intensity and duration of activities to allow muscles and tendons to adapt and strengthen.
  • Incorporate stretching and strengthening exercises for the forearm muscles and tendons into regular workouts to improve flexibility and resilience.
  • Take regular breaks during activities that involve repetitive wrist or arm movements to allow muscles and tendons to rest and recover.
