Golfers and tennis players know all too well the pain associated with overuse of the elbow. Repetitive motions on the golf course, tennis court or even at the computer can result in inflammation and pain. The muscles of both the upper and lower arm attach at the elbow and function to flex, extend and rotate the lower arm. All of this activity and stress often leads to irritation of these muscles and tendons causing painful and sometimes debilitating pain. The two main types of elbow pain are “Tennis elbow” or lateral epicondylitis which affects the outside area of the elbow and “Golfers Elbow” or medial epicondylitis which causes pain to the inside of the elbow. These two conditions result in the bulk of elbow pain complaints although there are many other causes of elbow pain including arthritis and trauma.
