Golfers Elbow Exercises – Left Arm Medial Epicondylitis

In the original post I did for golfers elbow exercises, I demonstrated on only the right arm.

Since then I’ve had some people request a video demonstrating on the left arm. And I’ll admit, it’s a confusing exercise to learn at first.

So if you have golfers elbow on the left arm, this is for you.

Check out my ultimate resource for golfer’s and tennis elbow, The Elbow Tendonitis Toolkit.

I also made a video for whoever wants to see the tennis elbow treatment on the left arm.

And if you’re not certain which injury you have, check out the tennis elbow test or golfers elbow test.

  • Hi Jamie, I dislocated my left elbow doing Judo. last time i did I had an operation to reattach the tendon.
    The question i have is not related to Golfer elbow, but more to the fact that i notice the right arm one is a bit lax.
    Do yo uhave any exercises that can strengthen a loose or lax tendon or hte ones for golfer elbow would be enough?

  • Hi Riccardo, seeing as the tendon is attached to the muscle, the easiest way of going about tightening it is to strengthen the muscle.

  • Hi Jamie,
    I have watched your YouTube video about elbow tendenopathy. I am interested in what you have to say, however
    can you tell me something about your qualifications? Are you a Licensed Physical Therapist? Or something else?
    Many thanks.

  • Hi G.G., I am a personal trainer who has had both medial and lateral epicondylitis. A client of mine, who is a physical therapist, introduced me to the Flexbar and showed me how well it works.

  • Hi I just want to know when you suggest its ok to start these stretches. I have been diagnosed with golfers elbow (right side) about 4 weeks ago. Area is still very sore and tender. Mine appears to be due to working on a computer all day, though I also do weight training but have stopped doing that now, but have to still use computer given nature of my job.

  • I recommend starting right away, waiting will just delay the healing process. You will probably be sore while performing the exercise but that is normal and just fine.
