Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow)

Medial epicondylitis also more commonly known as Golfer's Elbow/Pitcher’s Elbow is an inflammatory response due to a series of microscopic tears of the common flexor tendon and its associated muscle groups on the inside of the elbow. This condition is not limited to golfers or professional ball throwers, as the repetitive action of elbow use is part of normal daily activities. For example using cooking, hammering or chopping wood, and repetitive action such as assembly line work can lead to medial epicondylitis.This repetitive action causes microscopic tears in the ligament of the common flexor muscles of the wrist due to the continuous microtrauma. Pain may travel up or down the inside of the forearm and is made worse with movement, a loss of grip strength and an aching feeling in the forearm can also be present.

Medial epicondylitis can be confused with a Myofascial Trigger Point or Osteoarthritis.
