This program is aimed at people who experience pain on the medial side of their elbow as a result of inflammation in the medial epicondyle and its surrounding soft tissue.
You may begin this program after consulting your physician or a member of our team.
The goal of the program is to improve blood flow, strengthen the muscles, and alleviate pain.
For a full and timely recovery, it is necessary to perform the exercises daily.

All rehabilitation exercises are only to be performed until you feel a stretch up to a mild discomfort. Under no circumstances should you cause yourself any pain. If you feel any pain, please take a short break and resume exercising at a reduced strain level. Overexertion will slow down the recovery process!

Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is a common pathology, which manifests after overexertion and microtrauma. It causes pain on the medial (inner) side of the elbow. Medial epicondylitis can occur in people who have rapidly increased their amount of physical activity, e.g. for their job, agricultural work, housework, or sports. It can also occur due to a sudden technique change in these actions that puts more strain onto the forearm flexors. The condition can also be brought on by acute trauma during a game of squash or badminton, during waterskiing, gymnastics, or weightlifting. Jobs that require a lot of repetitive motion can also make a person susceptible. Jobs that involve carpentry, stone cutting, painting or drawing, computer work, sewing, etc. Sometimes the condition can come about suddenly. If the patient has had prior trauma to the wrist, elbow, or neck, this could be a potential factor in developing epicondylitis. Although it’s possible to develop the condition at any age, the usual age range is between 40 and 60. Nowadays, due to the continual use of computers in our everyday lives, golfer’s elbow can even often manifest between the ages of 20 and 35.
Medial epicondylitis is a localized illness, which very rarely leads to other complications. Most often treatment is conservative, involving a short period of rest and rehabilitation. By strengthening the muscles and tendons, the program can aid proper biomechanics and prevent a recurrence of the condition.
