Golfers and Tennis Elbow

Most Elbow Pain results from overuse injuries, many sports hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. Elbow Pain may occasionally be due to arthritis, but in general, your Elbow joint is much less prone to wear-and-tear damage than are many other joints.

Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your Elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.

The cause is repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your Elbow. Tennis Elbow is also known as lateral epicondylitis.

Golfer's Elbow

Golfer's Elbow is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, that is where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist.

The pain of Golfer's Elbow doesn't have to keep you off the course or away from your favourite activities. With rest and appropriate treatment, you can get back into the swing of things.Golfer's Elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is caused by damage to the muscles and tendons that control your wrist and fingers. The damage is typically related to excess or repetitive stress — especially forceful wrist and finger motions. Improper lifting, throwing or hitting, as well as too little warm-up or poor conditioning, also can contribute to Golfer's Elbow.
