Medial Epicondylitis (Little League Elbow) is a painful inflammation of the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. That is the attachment site where the tendons of the muscles that bend/flex your wrist and fingers are located. Little League Elbow occurs as a result of overuse to those muscles, from activities such as throwing a ball too hard and too often, golfing, swimming, typing, etc., without sufficient rest and recovery. Symptoms of Little League Elbow are pain and/or swelling on the inside of the elbow that may extend along the inner surface of the forearm, and weak or painful grip strength. Initial treatment is modified activity, Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. If you are uncertain about the nature of your condition or your condition does not improve with conservative treatment please contact your primary care provider or for more specialized care contact Children’s Sports Medicine.
