Today we will focus on elbow tendons inflammation, a frequent problem that I see and solve pretty often.
First of all, I should like to clarify that there are two possible problematic situations in the elbow area.
- Epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow, which causes pain on the outside of the elbow.
- Epitrochleitis, where the pain shows in the inner elbow.
These two injuries are most often caused by:
- Excessive movement
- Limited technique
- Heavy pressure in the grip or racket handle.
That is to say, these situations do not come overnight, but they are induced by chronic factors that endure over time.
The pain is present during the day; thus, it makes difficult to carry out routine tasks. Besides, it is usually associated with lack of strength when it comes to lifting or picking up objects.
So, the first step is to apply COLD in the painful area, such as an ice cube (never apply it directly to the skin) for at least 10 minutes and repeat it three times per day. Furthermore, you should stop doing activities that could increase the injury.
If the pain persists for more than a week, I highly recommend to visit a professional therapist in order to prevent chronic and consequent issues.
In PhysiogolfMarbella we address these problems successfully through C.M.F. technology, achieving great results in just a few sessions. The key is a quick intervention.

During the day and at nighttime, we suggest wearing an elbow brace, until the pain disappears.
Moreover, you can relieve the consequent contracture in the forearm by doing this simple massage.
