Golfer's elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow. Despite its name, this condition is not exclusive to golfers; it can affect anyone who repeatedly uses their wrist or clenches their fingers. The primary cause is overuse or repetitive stress on the forearm muscles and tendons, leading to small tears and inflammation near the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. Symptoms include pain, tenderness, and weakness. Rest, ice, and targeted exercises are common treatments, but severe cases may require medical intervention. Proper technique, equipment, and conditioning can help prevent golfer's elbow. If symptoms persist, consulting a healthcare professional is advisable for a proper diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.
