Golfer's elbow


Medial epicondylitis is common in individuals between 35 and 55 years of age. Overuse is the main cause of this pathology especially in older people as the tendons become weaker with ageing. It mostly develops with swing movements of the wrist typical of golfing or throwing activity in ball sports, bowling, weight lifting and arching and racquet sports. It can also arise from a wrong posture, when working at a computer desk, driving and DIY activities or sudden trauma.
