Golfer’s Elbow

Description

Lateral (Tennis Elbow) and Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow)  are both painful  inflammation of the muscle and surrounding tissues of the elbow. They are caused by repeated strain or trauma in the forearm near the medial or lateral epicondyles of the humerus. Strain may result from forceful extension or supination (rotation of the forearm with the palm facing up) against a resisting force. At times surgery may be indicated.

Symptoms

  • Pain
  • Tenderness in elbow
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Functional deficits ( difficulty performing daily activities)
  • Swelling

What to expect from therapy

A therapist will evaluate your pain, range of motion, muscle strength, sensation, and ability to perform your daily activities.  Treatment may include recommendations for limited activity, rest, therapeutic modalities, stretching, therapeutic exercise and muscle strengthening.
