Medial epicondyle of left elbow

Medial epicondyle of left elbow


In Golfer’s Elbow or Medial Epicondylitis it is the muscles on the inner elbow that become irritated (generally through overuse or excessive strain) and painful whenever you use them.

The main muscles that attach to the medial epicondyle are called :-

Pronator Teres, Palmaris Longus & Flexor Digitorum.

Golf / golfer’s elbow and medial epicondylitis are one and the same thing with perhaps acute inflammation of the elbow tendons initially, and more commonly, chronic degenerative changes in the small tendons that connect these muscles to the medial epicondyle.

Club decelerates as it impacts mat


Golf elbow injury is caused in golf by the repeated deceleration of the clubhead as is impacts with the ground. Practice off a golf mat or at the driving range with little or no rest between shots especially when hitting them ‘fat’ can cause the pain because there is less ‘give’ in the mat compared to the fairway. Also repeated gripping tasks such as DIY jobs like plastering and hammering.







Irritation of of the nerves in your neck from a disc bulge or some joint inflammation can cause pain to travel down your arm to the elbow and can feel like and present as Golf Elbow pain.
Inflammation of soft tissues around the shoulder joint can refer pain down the arm to the elbow which can complicate the diagnosis of Golfer’s Elbow.
In addition there are a few sites in the arm where one of the the main nerves – the Ulnar Nerve – can get trapped or irritated and this specifically can replicate the Golfers Elbow pain!

The muscles involved in golf elbow injury are muscles that are primarily involved with movements of the wrist and hand, but as they are attached to the humerus they cross both the wrist and elbow joints. In the body the muscles most susceptible to injury generally cross more than one joint. Think of the most common muscles to get injured and you get Hamstrings, Calf, Biceps etc – they all cross more than one joint.



Golfer’s elbow treatment firstly involves working out whether there are any contributing factors from the neck or shoulder, whether there are any problems with the elbow joint and also if there is involvement of the ulnar nerve. These factors have to be resolved before starting golf elbow treatment.
If there is shortening of the forearm flexor muscles then these require stretching out as part of a program of specific golfers elbow exercises.
