Golf Elbow is a form of elbow tendinitis from any repetitive hand, wrist, or forearm motions can lead to golfer’s elbow.
Golfer’s elbow is usually caused by overusing the muscles in the forearm that allow you to grip, rotate your arm, and flex your wrist. Repetitive flexing, gripping, or swinging can cause pulls or tiny tears in the tendons.
Many activities can lead to golf elbow, including:
• Racket sports
• Throwing sports
• Weight training
