  Golfer’s Elbow

The Golfer’s Elbow – Medial Epicondylitis – is localized at the medial side of the elbow at the top of the forearm. The muscles that bend the wrist are mainly anchored there. As the name Golfer’s Elbow says, the problem may be related to playing golf and especially to the rear arm that swings the club.
