Medial Epicondylitis

(Golfer’s elbow)

Medial epicondylitis is inflammation of the flexor and pronator muscles that attach to the medial epicondyle of the elbow. The diagnosis is made by provocative testing. Treatment consists of immobilization and cooling, with subsequent exercises and a gradual return to normal activity.

The medial epicondylitis is caused by any activity that exerts a Valguskraft on the elbow or a violent bending the volar forearm muscles result has such. As in baseball (pitching), with insufficient technique as golf and tennis (especially when Top Spin in to heavy bat to hard fabric to handle small or serious balls), and the javelin. Other activities that can cause medial epicondylitis, are walls, hammering and typing.

Other activities that can cause medial epicondylitis, are walls, hammering and typing. Symptoms and complaints pain occurs in the flexor and Pronatorsehnen (that focus on the medial epicondyle) and the medial epicondyle when the wrist is bent or pronated against resistance. Provocative diagnostic tests, the doctor can to confirm the diagnosis the patient sitting in a chair with the forearm resting on a table and the hand is supinated. Now, the patient attempts to flex the wrist against resistance while the Artzt keeps it down. Pain in the medial epicondyle and the flexor and Pronatorsehnen confirm the diagnosis. Immobilization treatment, cooling and muscle stretching exercises change of the motion sequence Later: resistance exercises Treatment is symptomatic and is similar to that in the lateral epicondylitis (lateral epicondylitis: treatment). Patients should avoid any activity that causes pain. First, immobilization, cooling, NSAIDs and strains are prescribed, sometimes with an additional Kortikosteroidinjektion in the painful tendon region. If the pain subside, light resistance exercises of the forearm flexors and -extensoren be performed, follow those eccentric and concentric resistance exercises. In general, a surgical treatment is considered only after 9-12 months of unsuccessful conservative treatment. Here, the scar tissue is removed and fixed damaged tissue.
