What are the best stretches, strengthening, or other kinds of movements for golfer’s elbow? Well we’d make a strong argument that these 5 are the best! These 5 are based on a review of the current research on golfer’s elbow and the various factors that are associated with it.

Utilizing these 5 exercises you’ll address the local capacity of the tissues around the medial epicondyle, while also developing the entire kinetic chain, maximizing upper body function that may contribute to the function of the medial elbow structures.

If you think there are other movements that we should classify as “best” exercises for it, comment down below and let us know what you think!

As well, tell us in the comments what kind of pathology or condition you’d like us to cover the best exercises for in the future!

Thankyou for this video. A couple years ago I started to experience tennis and golfers elbow. I’m a carpenter and obviously my hammering doesn’t help, but also the constant squeeze of using my nail gun, really agitated my tennis and golfers elbow. I’m going to adopt this videos stretches and exercises and hopefully the pain will reduce in my left arm.

It’s a constant ache all day everyday not hugely painful but just always there. It’s tiring actually and gets me in a bad mood I feel. Annoying cus I love my job but now I get pain from my job too.

I really hope these exercises help.

Many thanks

Great Legs doctor Sam ….and shorts 😍

Bryan Oldenburg says:

I think I developed golfer's elbow specifically from ramping up my reps on the manual bench press, plus ramping up my pushup reps. I laid off a couple weeks, icing the area, and it seemed to appear again when I resumed. I'm trying your exercises, but am curious how long should I hold off before attempting the gym again? Thanks much!
