Golfer’s Elbow (Medial epicondylitis)

Elbow Broken Bones & Injuries - Adelaide Orthopaedic Specialist

Golfer's elbow (also called medial epicondylitis) is a chronic inflammation of a tendon of the inner side of the elbow. It tends to occur after repetitive use of the forearm and wrist, particularly as used to swing a club when playing golf.

Golfer’s elbow can typically be treated with conservative and non-surgical means, including immobilisation and anti-inflammatory medications. If the condition does not respond well to this treatment, surgical treatments may be considered.
