What is Golfer’s Elbow?

Golfer’s elbow, also called medial epicondylitis, is similar to its counterpart, tennis elbow. The primary differences between these conditions are the location of the pain and the activity that leads to injury. However, both conditions are caused by overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, leading to inflammation and pain around the elbow joint.

What causes golfer’s elbow?

Golfer’s elbow is an overuse injury. These kinds of injuries are caused by putting too much stress on your muscles, joints, or other tissues without allowing them to recover. Golfer’s elbow is seen most often in people who garden, bowl, play golf, or play baseball.

Symptoms of the Golfer’s Elbow

Pain on the inside of the elbow during or after intense use usually indicates medial epicondylitis. Pain increases during wrist flexion and often radiates to the forearm. Because this frequently occurs in golfers, it has become known as ‘golfer’s elbow’.

Other symptoms of golfer’s elbow include:

  • Specific pain on inside of the elbow, particularly while grasping objects.
  • Wrist weakness and pain during wrist flexion.
  • Weakness and/or pain while resisting wrist pronation.


How is Golfer’s elbow injury treated?

The goal of treatment is to relieve pain and allow the tendon in the elbow to heal.

Treatment usually starts with rest, using ice and anti-inflammatory medicines, and trying a physiotherapy and exercise program. Many people get better using these treatments.
Some people get cortisone shots. These are shots of steroid medicine into the painful area to reduce swelling. Cortisone shots often work well to relieve pain.
If other treatments don’t work and you are not getting better, surgery might be an option.
Golfer’s elbow can be prevented.

Take time to stretch the muscles in your forearm before and after your activity.
Be sure not to overuse your elbow.
If you have pain or swelling in your elbow after an activity, ice the elbow, rest it, and try not to use it until the pain is gone.
