Home Our Specialties Elbow Golfer’s Elbow

Medial epicondylitis, more commonly known as golfer's elbow, is a degeneration of the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm of the hand. These tendons are located above the medial epicondyle, the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. Although this condition is often referred to as golfer's elbow, medial epicondylitis can be caused by any repetitious use of these muscles.
