Golfer’s elbow

(Epycondilitis humeri medialis)

The so-called golfer’s elbow is medically called a epicondylitis humeri medialis and is classed among the tendinopathies. Patients who suffer from golfer’s elbow have a pain on the inside of the elbow, in the bone projection of the tendons. Usually this pain occurs because of repetitive operations with the hands or unusual activities.

In tennis- and golfer’s elbow also the neck, the thoracic spine and the muscles in these areas can be a potential source of symptomes.
