Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

Although there is no scientifically proven preventative program, most clinicians agree that optimizing strength, flexibility, equipment, and technique in combination with avoiding overuse can potentially prevent the development of Golfer’s elbow. Components may include preventative elbow muscle stretching and strengthening exercises, appropriate pre-activity warm-up, working with a qualified professional to ensure proper equipment fit and technique, and knowing when to rest. In some cases, individuals may benefit from total body conditioning to minimize elbow stress during sports, occupation, or daily life activities.
