Golfers elbow is a relatively common injury that often occurs due to overuse and typically causes pain at the inner aspect of the elbow. It is a similar condition to tennis elbow but affects the elbow’s inner aspect rather than the outer aspect.
The main cause of Golfer’s elbow:
Golfer’s elbow usually results from a sudden increase in activity or overuse of the flexor muscles of the wrist and fingers. Still, it may also have a progressive onset, worsening over time with no obvious cause. The most common muscle involved is the “Flexor Carpi Radialis,” but other muscles may also be involved.
