Golfer's Elbow

Select an injury location on the golf player

What is Golfer's Elbow?

Golfer's elbow is inflammation of the tendons of the forearm at the point where they insert into the Humerus (upper arm) bone on the inner side of the elbow. This inflammation is caused by forceful gripping activities such as when gripping the golf club, particularly if you have a 'wristy' technique.

Golfer's elbow causes pain when the inner part of the elbow (Medial Epicondyle) is touched, and also if the elbow is straight and the hand is moved forward and back at the wrist. Typically the pain is made worse by gripping activities and in some cases simple things like picking up a bag or briefcase can cause intense pain.

What can you do to prevent Golfer's Elbow?

Gripping the golf club too hard can bring on the Golfer's Elbow pain. If you play golf for the first time in a long while make sure that you regularly stretch the muscles which work over the wrist by doing 'limp-wrist' and 'policeman halting traffic' type stretches.

Many people get symptomatic relief from Golfer's Elbow by wearing a golfer's Elbow Compression Strap. Elbow Straps work by preventing the wrist extensor muscles from contracting fully, thus reducing the strain on the tendons at the elbow. This reduces elbow pain.

What should you do if you suffer Golfer's Elbow?

The inflammation of Golfer's Elbow usually responds well to rest and Ice Therapy, as well as anti-inflammatory medication prescribed by a doctor. However, in longstanding cases, where there is degeneration of the extensor tendons, anti-inflammatory medication, and especially corticosteroid injections, should be avoided because they can hinder tissue healing and in fact cause more degeneration. A TENS Machine can be a more effective form of pain relief.

Golfers Elbow rehabilitation is achieved using a Resistance Band strengthening programme for the flexor tendons. It's crucial that the load and number of repetitions are carefully recorded and progressively increased under the supervision of a Chartered Physiotherapist. This ensures that the overload on the tendon is carefully controlled and gradually increased.
