Golfers elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the inner side of the elbow.
If left untreated, medial epicondylitis can last indefinitely.

While it is commonly associated with golf, it can also be caused by repetitive motions involving gripping, such as racket sports, weightlifting, or even typing. The condition is marked by symptoms such as pain, tenderness, stiffness, and weakness in the affected arm.

Who is most likely to experience Golfer's Elbow?

This condition is more common in those who participate in certain sports, especially golf, throwing sports, bowling, football, archery, and weight lifting. People working in occupations that require heavy gripping or repeated hand movements, like carpentry or typing, can be predisposed to this condition.

Studies show that up to 40% of untreated patients suffer prolonged discomfort, some as long as three years. If you are experiencing pain in your elbow, E3 Chiropractic + Wellness in Saskatoon is here to help! Book an appointment today!

If You are a Golfer with Elbow Pain, You Should Complete a TPI Golf Specific Movement Screen

The TPI Golf Screen is a tool used to identify the physical limitations of a golfer that may put you at an increased risk of injury and inhibit your ability to achieve the maximum potential of your golf swing.
