Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is pain, discomfort, and inflammation of the interior of the arm near the elbow. The injury can arise from sudden damage to the ligaments and muscles in the arm or a quick and serious strain to the wrist or elbow. Golfer’s elbow occurs more frequently over time due to repeatedly overusing the muscles in the wrist and fingers.
Tennis elbow is an injury that causes swelling, irritation, and inflammation of the tendons that connect the forearm and the external area of the elbow. The condition is often caused by overuse of the muscles in the forearm, wrist, and throughout the arm.

Pain in the hand and wrist can be caused by anything from a trapped nerve to an underlying disease. Fortunately, many of the causes can be treated and the symptoms eased through proper physical therapy care.
One of the most common nerve disorders affecting millions of Americans is carpal tunnel syndrome. The disorder causes numbness, tingling, and weakness in your hand due to the pressure on the median nerve. Carpal tunnel is caused by work that requires hand-arm vibration, working for long hours in the same position, or forceful repetitive hand movements.
