L’medial epicondylitis or golfer's elbow often occurs during repetitive movements involving the wrist, whether at work or during daily activities.
Elbow pain is common among golfers, especially amateurs. Elbow pain accounts for 25% to 33% of amateur golf injuries and 7% to 10% of professional golf injuries.
Also, this pain can occur as a result of overuse which results in inflammation where the muscles and tendons attach to the elbow. The muscles and tendons involved are those that allow the flexion of the wrist and fingers.
Without proper treatment, this condition can develop into a chronic and recurring problem. Also, there may be the presence of degeneration or partial tear of the tendon is possible.
The pain is located in the protruding part of the bone on the inside of the elbow.
The pain is triggered by squeezing the hand or holding an object firmly.
The pain is triggered by forced pronation. The hand turns inwards.
The pain can be clearly increased by a shock or vibration.
There is a slight swelling in the painful area.
As mentioned above, golfers are affected by this elbow pain. Indeed, the vibrations felt at the time of the impact with the ball constrain the tendons. Tennis can also trigger this internal pain.
Manual workers are also concerned because the muscles of the forearm are overworked.
Finally, leisure activities such as gardening and DIY generate elbow pain due to the use of vibrating equipment: electric pruning shears, drill...
Elbow pain when the tendons are overstressed compared to their usual capacity:
Our body is able to adapt permanently but can generate dysfunctions according to the lack of progression.
Apply ice or heat. This helps to flush out inflammatory waste products and loosen local connective tissue.
Get a Velcro bracelet to reduce shocks and vibrations and relieve discomfort during your daily activities or sports.
Apply essential oils (check beforehand to see if you are not allergic).
Change your eating habits and avoid pro-inflammatory foods.
