Medically known as medial epicondylitis, Tennis and Golfer’s elbow is commonly caused by activities that demand flexion and extension of the wrist. Both injuries are caused by strain and can be seen in patients that play sports or perform repetitive, manual labor. Symptoms include pain that radiates from the elbow to the forearm, weakness in grip and pain when twisting the forearm.
The pain of golfer’s and tennis elbow does not have to keep you off the court or away from your favorite activities. Surgery is rarely an option. With appropriate treatment, you can get back to your active life.
