Medial Epicondylitis: aka: Golfers Elbow. Medial Epicondylitis, also known as golfers elbow, is a painful condition to the medial or inside aspect of your elbow and is associated with repetitive or over use of the forearm muscles and tendons that attach the muscles to the boney structures of the elbow. Symptoms can consist of pain and tenderness of the inside bone structures of the elbow with pain and stiffness extending along the inner aspect of the forearm and possible numbness and tingling of the fingers.
Medial epicondylitis is not isolated to the golfing industry but can affect anyone performing repetitive stress activities to the upper extremities. Dr. Batson utilizes K-Laser Therapy, also known as “Photobiomodulation”, to the elbow region to increase circulation to the region, increase cellular function, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, increase healing, and for the restoration of joint and soft tissue function. Chiropractic manipulation can also be applied to the elbow for further restoration of joint function.
