Golfers Elbow or Epicondylitis is a condition where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bony bump inside the elbow. Many actions like improper swing techniques, repetitive movement, and hitting the floor or a rock may result in golfers’ elbow. Symptoms include pain and tenderness inside the elbow, stiffness, weakness around the elbow, numbness or tingling sensation. If you feel any of these symptoms, consult your GP.

He may apply pressure to the affected areas or move your elbow and wrists in several ways to check the nature of the pain. Your doctor may also suggest some tests to determine the severity of the condition. MRI and CT scans help identify the injury of the soft tissues, helping treat the disease more efficiently. Generally, golfers’ elbow can heal by itself, but your GP might suggest using non-surgical or surgical treatments.
