Golf Elbow Treatment

Washington Injury and Sports Performance Clinic in Washington, DC, is the premier sports chiropractic provider in the area.

We will create a customized treatment plan, so you don’t have to endure the pain.

Golfers Elbow

Golf elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow. The pain radiates to other parts of the arm. Golfers elbow is tendonitis caused by the excessive force of bending the wrist toward the palm.

Symptoms

The symptoms of this condition range from a dull ache to a sharp pain running along the inside of the elbow to the wrist. Immediate treatment can reduce the pain and duration of the condition. It's essential to seek medical attention if you experience persistent or severe elbow pain, as other conditions, such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) or nerve compression, can cause similar symptoms.

Causes

The causes of a golfer's elbow are those that cause a bend to the wrist with force or repetitive motion. The reasons may be muscle weakness in areas supporting intensive wrist movement. These are a few causes of golfer’s elbow:

  • Racket sports
  • Throwing an object
  • Weight training
  • Repetitive forceful movements
  • Weak shoulder and wrist muscles
  • Chopping wood
  • Repetitive use of hand tools
