Also known as golfers elbow is an overload of the tendon which attaches to the medial epicondyle which is a bony prominence on the inside of the elbow. Tendon attaches muscle to bone which is why pain can also radiate into the forearm muscle on activity. Generally affects those aged 30-50 years. Medial epicondylitis is less common than lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), it is more common in those with type 2 diabetes and those who smoke.
