Golfers Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
Golfers Elbow is one of the most popular forms of acute tendonitis and is most prevalent in females. Elbow injuries account for 35% to 33% of all injuries in amateur golfers.
Golfers Elbow is a very painful condition affecting the inside of the elbow (close to the "funny bone") and results from overuse of arm and forearm muscles, or hitting an obstruction (ground, root, etc) instead of the golf ball during a hard swing.
When treating golfers elbow, rest the area (meaning do NOT play golf), apply cold compression for 10-20 minutes at a time for at least 3 times a day. Do this to the injured area for the first day to 3 days. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ may be used after the acute swelling is improved and rest prevents further injury.
The Inferno Wrap® will stimulate blood flow and minimize the build up of scar tissue around the elbow tendon during the healing process, helping the tendon heal more quickly. Less scar tissue in the joint allows for a larger range of motion so your swing is not affected when you get back on the golf course.
