Helping Clients Suffering from Golfer’s Elbow
Helping Clients Suffering from Golfer’s Elbow
With spring in the air, golfers are dusting off the clubs to head back to the links. And just like any activity cessation to participation, too much too fast is often a misguided issue. Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylosis, is an overusesyndrome caused by repetitive and forceful wrist flexion and pronation– as seen during a golf swing. High-volume overhead throwing (e.g., baseball players) will also increase risk for the issue. As its name indicates, it is associated with significant inflammation of the medial epicondyle of the humerus within the elbow (located on the inside aspect of the joint). A slow onset of pain and tenderness during activity will generally be experienced over the origin of the wrist flexor muscle group; most commonly in the trailing or dominant elbow. This pain may radiate down the forearm along the full course of the muscle group. Essentially, repetitive microtrauma to the respective tendons creates an inflammatory response that can send pain signals down the entire arm.
