Medial epicondylitis, also known as “golfer’s elbow,” usually results from an overuse injury to the forearm, specifically, the muscle-tendon attachment(s) of the flexor/pronator muscle mass to a bony prominence located along the inner elbow called the ‘medial epicondyle.’ In the sport of golf, this area of the forearm/elbow is placed under stress at or near the top of the back swing and proceeds through the down swing to just before impact with the golf ball. Instantly or repetitively, this area can also be strained and injured when doing pull ups or certain weight training exercises, such as curls or cable cross overs. People with this injury usually have tenderness at the medial epicondyle (inside elbow) and pain with resisted wrist flexion and forearm pronation.
