Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)

Characterized by pain from the elbow to the wrist on the palm side of the forearm. The pain is caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm. Medial epicondylitis is caused by the excessive force used to bend the wrist toward the palm, such as swinging a golf club or pitching a baseball. Other possible causes include carrying a heavy suitcase or frequent use of hand tools on a continuous basis.
