Golfers' elbow

As golfer’s elbow is usually caused by over-using the tendon that connects your forearm muscles to the inner side of your elbow joint, the key in preventing the condition from developing is to take care when carrying out activities or sports that place pressure on the tendon.

It takes time for your body to get used to a new activity and, due to their poorer blood supply, tendons take longer than muscles to adapt. So, it’s important to pace yourself and, if in doubt, take advice from an experienced sports trainer.
