Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow - How to prevent?

What can you do?

Rest the wrist and prevent further repetitive overuse. Application of ice to the painful area can sometimes help and pain medications may be useful to relieve the symptoms.

An elbow strap brace applied below the elbow joint may also help to reduce the force on the flexor muscles and provide relief during daily activities. Additionally, stretching of the wrist flexor muscles can help provide relief. This can be done by bending the wrist upwards while keeping the elbow straight. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds and perform this three times a day.

Following treatment, it is important to gradually return to normal activity. It is also important to prevent the pain from returning again by avoiding activities requiring excessive and repetitive wrist flexion. Take frequent short breaks when doing these activities.
