Golfer’s Elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is when you have irritation on the inside of your elbow. These Golfer’s elbow stretches and exercises should help relieve the pain.
The first set of exercises will loosen up the muscles, try not to push through pain, just get a slight stretch. You can prop your arm on a table and let your wrist hand off or you can hold it up in the air. Make a fist with your hand with your palm down. At your wrist, bend your wrist up to work the muscles in extension, and then bend it down to stretch the muscles in flexion. Then turn your fist to the side with the thumb toward the ceiling for a radial and ulnar deviation movement going up and down. Finally, with your palm open and your elbow by your side, turn your forearm up with the palm up in supination, and then turn it down into pronation. Do all of these about ten times.
For stretching, put your arm straight out in front of you. With your palm down and making a fist, bend your wrist up with overpressure from your other hand. If this is not enough of a stretch, open up your fingers pointing them in the air and do the same stretch. Hold these for 30 seconds, and do three of them.
Now grab a hammer or something that is top heavy to give you an extra stretch with overpressure. You will do your supination and pronation now with the hammer. Do ten of these.
Finally you will do a bicep curl. You can step on the band, and keep your elbow by your side. Pull all the way up and all the way down. Make sure you are doing the full motion to maximize working the muscle. Make sure you are controlling the band; don’t let the band control you!
