Golfer's elbow


Causes and triggers

The flexor muscles of the forearm originate from the inner surface of the elbow joint, the overuse of this muscle often results in a condition called epicondylitis medialis, or golfer’s elbow. The problem is a chronic lesion at the origin of the flexor tendon called tendinopathy, which is initially painful only during movement, but later even at rest, preventing squeezing and the wrist from bending down.


  • Golfer’s elbow can be diagnosed by physical examination, but X-rays, ultrasound and MRI are useful for confirmation and to rule out other problems.
