Expert Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) Treatment in Manhattan, Provided by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition in which the tendons that attach to the bony prominence on the inside of the elbow (the medial epicondyle) become inflamed and painful. The pain is typically felt on the inside of the elbow and may radiate down the forearm. It is often caused by overuse of the forearm muscles, especially those that flex the wrist and fingers. Symptoms include tenderness and stiffness on the inner side of the elbow, as well as weakness and numbness in the hand and fingers. The condition is common in golfers, but can also occur in other athletes and people who perform repetitive motions with their arms.
