Golfer’s elbow or Epicondylitis is a form of tendonitis, which occurs when there is pain and inflammation radiating from the bony lump on the inside of your arm. This is the spot where tendons from your forearm connect the bone. The pain caused by a golfer's elbow might vary from time to time and often improves with rest.

Common causes of golfer’s elbow include weight training with imperfect posture, sports such as tennis, golf, and badminton, or repetitive movement injury that can occur in certain professions.

The most prominent symptoms of golfer's elbow includes numbness or tingling of the arm, being unable to move the arm freely or restricted movement, pain and tenderness of the injured area, and a weak grip or weakness of the arm. Pain and inflammation can cause fever-like symptoms.

Treatments and preventive techniques

Always warm up before any strenuous physical activity

Use the correct posture

Give your injured elbow an ample amount of time to rest
