Golfer’s Elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is known by the pain it produces at the inner bone of the elbow, which can spread down through the forearm. The condition occurs with repeated forearm bends, wrist bends and excessive gripping and twisting movements, and is seen habitually in golf and racket sport players alike. This injury isn’t as grave as its counterpart, Tennis elbow, generally healing within a few weeks of physiotherapy.
Your assessment will comprise of an evaluation of posture together with any neck movements potentially exacerbating the condition. Occasionally, patients are referred for ultrasound or MRI scans to aid accurate diagnosis.
