Golfers elbow is also known as Medial epicondylitis. Most people who develop this condition have never played golf. It is caused by an inflammation of the tendons that connects the forearm to the elbow. The pain generally centres on the bony bump on the inside of the elbow and may radiate down into the forearm. It is generally caused by an over use of the muscles in the forearm, that allow the gripping action, the arm to rotate, and flex the wrist. It is the repetition of these actions that can cause tiny tears in the tendons thus causing inflammation and pain.
