If you’re experiencing forearm and elbow pain, particularly pain on the inside of your elbow, you may be suffering from golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylalgia. Despite the name, golfer’s elbow is not limited to golfers. Common causes of golfer’s elbow can include any repetitive hand, wrist, or forearm motions such as twisting, throwing, or swinging.
As a form of elbow tendonitis, pain caused by golfer’s elbow occurs on the inside of the elbow rather than the outside. Inflammation along the inner side of the elbow, where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bone bump on the inside of the elbow, causes pain and discomfort in your elbow.
If you think you may be suffering from golfer’s elbow, please call the doctors in the Hand & Elbow Center at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., at (251) 450-2746 to schedule an appointment.
If elbow pain persists following nonsurgical treatment options, golfer’s elbow surgery, or medial epicondylectomy, may be recommended. Click here to learn more about the elbow surgery options offered at the Hand & Elbow Center at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C.
