Our user asked: "I have been dealing with this disorder for 2 years +. I have had 3 injections which gave immediate but temporary relief. I am interested in the pt exerices found on the CYBETPT web site but wasn't sure which elbow (or other) movements best fit my condition. By layman terms I would describe my condition as chronic. Any input would me much appreciated. Thanks."
Ask a PT Response: "Medial epicondylitis or Golfer's elbow is often associated with overuse as well as repetitive flexion at the elbow, wrist and fingers. Stretching the flexors into extension are often performed by individuals who have this condition. Strengtheing, joint mobs, manual therapy, modalities, functional/postural training, etc are also incorporated. You stated you had injections which helped, so my question to you is what could you be doing which may be contributing to this condition? Until that is determined and the activity stopped or modified, the condition will be hard to treat."
