An ailment known to affect professional athletes and active adults alike, golf elbow is one of the many conditions which we at NY Spine & Rehab Medicine treat. Also known as medial epicondylitis, this ailment occurs when excessive strain or repetitive motions causes tendon connected to the medial epicondyle to become inflamed. These tendons run between the wrist and the medial epicondyle (the inner side of the elbow).

This inflammation is worsened by wrist and arm motion and can lead to tenderness or pain due to motion. Treatment options for medial epicondylitis include rest, massage, steroid injection, and physical therapy. Surgery may be required in certain cases as well.
