Golfer's elbow or medial epicondylitis is a common injury to individuals engaged in activities that apply stress to the forearm. Golfer's elbow is characterized by pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow (medial epicondyle). The inflammation usually results from small tears to the tendon fibers that attach the muscles of the forearm to the arm bone. This often occurs because of excessive strain or overuse from activities that require repetitive and vigorous use of the forearm muscles that are responsible for extending and lifting the wrist and hand. Typically, the pain will exist at the top of the forearm just below the elbow however it can also extend along the inner side of the forearm and to the wrist.
