Do you have pain on the inside of your elbow? Does it hurt when bending or straightening your elbow or when gripping objects? This program was designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy and will teach you the best exercises for alleviating pain due to irritation of the muscles and tendons that attach on the inside of the elbow.
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 epicondyalgia 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.
If you have pain at the inside of the elbow and think you may be suffering from golfer’s elbow, this program will help to reduce pain and improve overall function. In the majority of cases, a simple home exercise program is sufficient to alleviate symptoms associated with this condition.
