What is a golfers elbow?

Golfer elbow is a similar injury to tennis elbow only it affects the inside of the elbow instead. Golfer elbow is more common in throwers and golfers hence the ‘nicknames’. Also known as flexor / pronator tendinopathy this elbow pain is seen in tennis players who use a lot of top spin on their forehand shots.

Symptoms include:

  • Pain on the bony bit on the inside of the elbow.
  • Weakness in the wrist.
  • Pain on the inside of the elbow when you grip something hard.
  • Pain when wrist flexion (bending the wrist palm downwards) is resisted.
  • Pain on resisted wrist pronation – rotating inwards (thumb downwards).
