Which muscle do I suffer from with a golfer’s elbow?
The moment you suffer from a golfer’s elbow, you have inflammation or irritation at the level of the attachment of the tendons to the inside of the elbow. This pain can then radiate to your forearm and wrist. The complaints arise in particular when you tighten the flexor muscles of the wrist and hand.
What is the difference between a golfer’s elbow brace and a bandage?
A golfer’s elbow is very similar to a golfer’s bandage. Both are effective for fighting golfer’s elbow, but there is a difference in the treatment method. For example, an elbow bandage specifically exerts pressure on the tendon attachment, which will reduce the forces. A brace, on the other hand, will exert less specific pressure on the tendon attachment but will provide more stability around the entire elbow.
Is there a golfer’s elbow test?
If you have problems with your arm and you want to know if it is a golfer’s elbow, you can find out by means of a test. You should start by giving someone a firm hand with a slightly bent elbow. Then the u turns the entire arm inwards against resistance. When you feel pain on the inside of the inside and experience pressure pain on the inner elbow nodule, you suffer from a golfer’s elbow.
