What is Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)?
Golfer's Elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is caused by specific repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. The stress placed on the forearm by swinging a golf club is a common culprit. This stress causes tiny tears to develop in one or more flexor tendons. This results in inflammation and pain. This video explains the symptoms, risk factors, and treatment of Golfer's Elbow.
