Let us first begin by getting a better understanding of golf elbow, including exactly what is golf elbow, the causes of golf elbow, symptoms of golf elbow and what the best treatment for golf elbow is.
What is Golf Elbow?
Golf elbow is an extremely painful inflammatory condition which involves the inner side of the forearm and elbow. The technical name for golf elbow is ‘medial epicondylitis’ and although the injury is common in individuals who play golf, the fact is that anyone can develop this condition.
Golf elbow (medial epicondylitis) is defined as an overuse injury which develops from damage (small micro tears) to the tendon that attaches to the bony bump on the inner-side of the elbow (medial epicondyle). This inflamed tendon attaches the muscle on the underside of the forearm which controls the closing curling of the wrist inwards, hence why pain may radiate up the inner forearm.
Causes of Golf Elbow
Golf elbow (i.e. medial epicondylitis) is due to repeated stresses that overtime cause the formation of minute micro tears and scars in the tendon which attach to the inner side of the elbow.
Activities that can cause such injuries include;
- Incorrect technique during sports such as golf which can place the elbow joint under strain.
- Jobs that require repetitive movement in the arms.
- Placing regular heavy loads on the muscles and joints of the arms.
- Age related wear & tear of the tendons.
Golf Elbow Symptoms
Symptoms of medial epicondylitis include:
- Pain on the inner elbow joint
- Pain in the arm.
- Dull ache during rest.
- Pain when gripping or bending inwards.
- Decreased strength in the arm and weakened grip.
Finally let’s discuss Medial Epicondylitis Treatment Options
In addition to resting, splinting or bracing the arm and elbow, treatment for medial epicondylitis can include:
- Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
- Pain relief medication
- Injection with a steroid, and
- Surgery in severe cases
Unfortunately the above mentioned treatments for golf elbow may not be appropriate for some people. Such reasons may include:
- Having already used these medications with little benefit.
- having a pre-existing condition that may not permit an individual to take such medications
- Steroid injections or surgery for golf elbow may be considered painful, risky and invasive
On the other hand you may just prefer to use a natural treatment for your golf elbow.
