Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is an inflammation on the inside of the elbow. It often comes from an overuse injury. This video shows you my top seven treatments for golfer’s elbow.
Then you will go into a wrist flexor stretch. You can do this modified or with a full stretch. The wrist flexors go from the wrist and fingers all the way to the medial elbow.
Next, using a golfer’s elbow support brace is a great way to take pressure off the epicondyle by putting pressure on the muscle belly.
Now you want to strengthen the muscles. You can do this with a light weight like a soup or vegetable can. Make sure your movements are slow and controlled for wrist flexion and extension.
With an Armbar, you can do all kinds of exercises. This one is an eccentric wrist extension movement.
You can also do stability exercises with the Armbar as well. For these, try to keep your arm and elbow still, and move just at your wrist. It’s sometimes hard to get, but it really works those muscles well.
The last treatment is soft tissue mobilization (STM). This is not a massage, even though that can be helpful. You want to move the tissue around to help break up scar tissue and adhesions.
