The symptoms of a golfers elbow tendonitis

This condition mainly involves the round pronator muscles (involved in internal rotation of the forearm, or pronation) and the finger flexors.

What are the symptoms?

The pain can be likened to that of lateral epicondylitis except that it occurs on the inside of the elbow (see symptoms of lateral epicondylitis).

How is it diagnosed?

It is less common than lateral epicondylitis, but like tennis elbow, it can be diagnosed by a physical examination and active flexion or pronation (inward twisting against resistence) of the wrist to see if those motions reproduce pain.
A MRI or ultrasound is rarely required, and then only to eliminate other possible tears or ligament issues.
