Medial Epicondylitis

Although also known as golfer's elbow, this syndrome often occurs from racquet sports and pitching. Overuse of the flexor forearm muscles stresses and inflames the tendinous insertion at the medial epicondyle.

Pain will be noted over the medial epicondyle, and grip may be suboptimal secondary to pain. Pronation or wrist flexion against resistance will increase the pain over the medial epicondyle. About two-thirds of these patients have concomitant ulnar neuritis (cubital tunnel syndrome).

Treatment is conservative, with rest and NSAIDs. Play is gradually resumed after 6 weeks.
