Also know as Forehand Tennis Elbow or Golfer's Elbow, Medial Epicondylitis is an inflammation, irritation or slight tearing of the tendons or muscles on the inner (medial) side of the elbow. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, redness or irritation on the inner side of the forearm. Pain can extend down the elbow to the wrist and may be present during rest. Pain may also be experienced when gripping objects, turning your hand or swinging your arm, especially when bending wrist toward the palm. This results from bending the wrist toward the palm with excessive force. The common causes include golf swing; serving in tennis; playing with a racquet that is too heavy or too small; throwing a baseball; carrying a heavy suitcase; and having weak shoulder or wrist muscles; or any repetitive actions that involve extending your wrist or rotation of your forearm.
