Dr. Clarene Cress
Specializes in Pediatrics
Golfer's elbow is: tendinitis of the muscles that attach to the medial side of the humerus at the elbow. The ulnar nerve passes just behind, so if you are having numbness of the pinky finger, you are having symptoms of compression of that nerve. Nerve pain going down the arm can be from the tendinitis itself but also that the strap may be too tight. Resting the activity that caused the injury is important.
