The pain occurs in the medial side of the elbow and golfing is one of many sports that can cause this type of injury in the flexor tendons of the forearm.
The best way to recover from this injury is to follow a combination of the following:
1. Rest and stop the activity that caused the injury for a few weeks.
2. Use a compression strap to reduce some of the tension and protect the tendon if you have to play a sport like golf.
3. Stretch to aid the healing process:
Palm flat on a flat surface with hand rotated 180 degrees backwards, lean backwards to stretch the flexors.
4. And gradually start strengthening exercises. Always stop if they are causing pain.
