Pain on the inside of the elbow is often thought to be associated with irritation of the tendons of the wrist and finger flexor muscles as they attach on the medial epicondyle of the humerus. This region of pain is usually diagnosed as medial epicondylitis or ‘golfer’s elbow’.
Because golfer’s elbow is associated with the tendons attaching at the medial or inside of the elbow, it can really be broadly classified as a tendinopathy. And, like other tendinopathies, it often responds well to a resistance training program that progressively increases the capacity of the tendons.
