Golfers Elbow Symptoms and Diagnosis

Golfers Elbow: Tear in Tendon, Tendon, Medial Epicondyle


The muscles that provide finger and wrist flexion have a tendon that originates in the medial epicondyle of the humerus. In golfers elbow, this tendinous origin undergoes degeneration leading to weakening and inflammation. As a result, patients experience pain at the location of the tendon origin with activities that cause wrist bending.



It is very rare to need surgery as most of tennis elbow symptoms improve with conservative treatment. The procedure removes the diseased tendon origin that is causing the symptoms thereby relieving pain.
