Golfer's Elbow, Physiotherapy and Hand Therapy

Golfer's Elbow (medically termed as medial epicondylitis) main character is the pain experienced over the inner part of the elbow, that may sometime travel/radiate down the forearm. Though it is called Golfer's Elbow, it doesn't only affect golfers - it is commonly associated with employees and workers, both men and women in the ages between 30 - 50 years old.

It will start as swelling, pain and inflammation in the origin of the flexor tendon of the forearm (inner part of the elbow) and the bone of the arm (the humerus). What causes it is primarily repetitive stress and strain or prolonged gripping activities e.g. weight lifting, hammering, pushing and pulling heavy objects, digging, screw driving and even driving. If the patient decides to ignore the pain to keep on being active and productive, in the short run, they can usually tolerate the pain. However, over time, as the tendon's level of inflammation and damage increases, the amount of pain experience goes up, and the patient will suffer moderate to severe amounts of pain, weaknesses and degeneration of the affected then.

When this happens the Golfer's Elbow becomes much more severe, persistent and increasingly difficult to manage. On the contrary, early diagnosis and treatment will allow this condition to be resolved quickly (but we understand that sometimes, due to work/life/family commitments, our patient just can't treat it any earlier), but no matter what stage you come in with, we will provide you pain relief, improve your joint range of motion, and prescribe you exercises to help you heal faster.

Usually, there is tenderness, pain and sensitivity at the inner part of the elbow when it is palpated or touched. Pain is also present when the elbow is straightened and when the wrist is extended back. Golfer's Elbow pain is aggravated by activities that involve gripping, and in moderate to severe cases, patients may have difficulties opening locks or taking coins from their pockets.

When it is still in the acute stage, marked by sharp and severe pain and inflammation, we will start you on Cold Therapy to decrease the inflammation, swelling and pain; and Ultrasound therapy to decrease inflammation and accelerate the tendon healing process.

During this stage we will also encourage patient to rest the injured Elbow, but if it is difficult or not possible for the patient to completely rest the arm, then we will fabricate a Splints and/or Braces to reduce the stress (and pain) experienced on the painful area, at the same time allowing the patient to participate in activities and exercises as much as possible.

Only when the acute phase is over, we will start more active physiotherapy and/or hand therapy interventions. Intervention will include electrotherapy, Deep Tissue Massage, range of motion exercises, Exercise and Movement therapy, strengthening acivities as well as soft tissue management and stretching.
