Most of the muscles that flex your wrist are attached to a bony bump on the inside of your elbow called the medial epicondyle. Sometimes, through injury or overuse, the site where these muscles originate can become irritated or inflamed. This condition is called medial epicondylitis, or 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!
