Causes of golfers elbow

What is “golfer’s elbow,” and what are its causes?

Golfer’s elbow is a common term for medial epicondylitis. It is a common source of pain at the medial elbow caused by stress from repetitive contraction of the flexors of the forearm. It is commonly seen in golfers, overhead throwing athletes, bowlers, and racket sport athletes (pain with forehand stroke and serve), but is also seen in carpenters and those with other occupations requiring similar repetitive stress of the forearm flexors.
