Medial epicondylitis, better known as golfer’s elbow, is an over-use injury of the tendons around the inside of your elbow. It tends to occur as a reaction to increased demand on the tendons beyond their capability. Day to day repetitive tasks such as opening jars, painting, and gripping objects can become problematic. For example, repetitive movements like hammering or typing can irritate this area. Those who do sports such as rowing or weight lifting will also be susceptible to golfer’s elbow. This may take anything from a week to a month depending on the severity of your tendon pain and how long you have had it.
Osteo Health offers effective non-invasive treatment options for Golfer’s Elbow. Unambiguously, the combination of the mentioned below modalities gives the most desired result.
Therapeutic exercises have a positive effect on improving the condition. In the first place, you must reduce the activities that irritate your tendon. If stress continues to be placed on the tissues, the area will become more and more irritated. In addition, it is important to increase your movement with exercises and help build strength back into your tissues.
