Elbow Conditions

Golfer’s Elbow

Medial Epicondylitis (also called thrower’s or golfer’s elbow) is a condition that develops when the tendons on the medial, or inside, of the forearm become inflamed or irritated. This is usually due to repetitive motions, especially those that require gripping, twisting, or throwing with the arm. Daily tasks like shoveling, gardening, and weightlifting can lead to the overuse of the forearm muscles as well.

Common symptoms of this condition include:

  • weakness with gripping
  • elbow stiffness
  • tenderness and swelling along the inside of the forearm
  • pain or numbness throughout the forearm and down to the wrist or hand

At Apex, a therapist will work with you to develop an individualized plan to help you return to your previous activities.
