Tennis and Golfers Elbow

Like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow involves the outer part of the elbow joint and triggers discomfort where the elbow bone connects to your forearm’s muscles. The pain may also involve your forearm.

The medical term for golfer’s elbow is medial epicondylitis. Even though it is called golfer’s elbow, the vast majority of patients treated for this condition don’t play golf or tennis. Most of the time, it is an overuse injury. Whether it is typing on the computer or repetitive activities at work, the tendons get overworked and end up with small tears, causing the pain. Other repeated activities of the elbow that can result in this condition include working an assembly line, using a hammer, an axe or any other repetitive activities that last over an hour a day.

Common symptoms include:

  • Sensitivity on the inside of your elbow that at times may travel down your forearm.
  • The pain may escalate during specific physical movements.
  • Loss of flexibility in your elbow.
  • Experiencing difficulty making a fist.
  • Diminished strength of your wrist and hand.
  • Loss of feeling, or a sensation of pins and needles traveling down to your fingers.

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
