Golfer's elbow is a term used to describe pain or soreness in the inner part of the elbow (medial epicondyle). The condition is considered an overuse injury and is seen more often in people who play golf or baseball.
The goal of treatment is to relieve pain and allow the tendon in the elbow to heal. This usually can be done with rest, the use of ice and anti-inflammatory medicines, and a physical therapy and exercise program.
