Golfer's Elbow

     Pain and tenderness near the inside of the elbow may be inflammation of the tendon that attaches the wrist flexor muscles in the forearm (the muscles that bend your hand downward). 
     Called "golfer’s elbow" because it's common in golf players, it is due to overuse / repetitive motion. The muscles should be massaged, cooled with ice, and rested, and the tendon has to be protected so it can heal. 
     As an ACTIVATOR Chiropractor, I find golfer’s elbow is associated with particular misalignments of the bones in the forearm. Correcting these misalignments is an essential part of my treatment plan.
