Golfer’s Elbow

Elbow

Symptoms

Golfer’s elbow often produces pain on the inside (medial epicondyle) of the elbow. The elbow may feel stiff. Hands and wrists may feel weak, you may also feel numbness in the arm and hand.

How it occurs

Golfer’s elbow results from overuse of the muscles that bend the wrist or by repetitively bending and straightening the elbow. It’s usually described by pain from the elbow to the wrist on the inside (medial side) of the elbow. The pain is traditionally caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm.

Treatment

At Action Rehab, a therapist may recommend a number of the following treatments that may include a combination following: Activity Restrictions: Limit use and rest the arm from activities that worsen symptoms. One of our custom made water resistant and removable brace. And a series of exercises for strengthening and stretching exercises to the forearm once your symptoms have decreased.
