What is Golfer's Elbow? Hand Wrist Pain

What is Golfer’s Elbow?

Golfer's elbow -- also called medial epicondylitis -- is a painful inflammation on the inner side of your elbow. The primary area where the pain originates is where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. In many cases, the pain spreads to the forearm and wrist. Golfer's elbow is very similar to tennis elbow but it occurs on the inside -- rather than the outside -- of the elbow. Another similarity to tennis elbow is that both afflictions are named after their associated sport. Even still, anyone can get golfers...

painless assault Hand Wrist Pain

painless assault

painless assault I am working in a dedicated trauma center this month, an entire hospital built specifically to manage the injured. And if you are badly injured, you want to be at this place. But most of our patients are not badly injured. I recently saw a 22 year old lady who flipped over her honda civic and was transported by helicopter (of course) to our fine facility.

This freaking out however made it difficult to examine her, as everywhere I touched her hurt, even places that...

17 August 2009

17 August 2009 Today had some very fck-you aspects to it, my carpal tunnel flaired up yesterday and is still causing me all manner of pain.

Also paid off my Tech Ed ticket and cooked an amazing dinner without damaging wrist further. (really wanted to do the finger...

Another war casualty

Another war casualty The obviously shaken mother of the murdered teenager, in shock and grief, told me the story of how Anderson died. At about 6:00 the night before, as they were eating dinner, about 10 heavily armed men from the "enemy" side of their village (Aserangka) surrounded their house and attacked Anderson with bush knives (machetes).

Out of time Project 365(2) Day 306

Out of time Project 365(2) Day 306 On my blog yesterday, I wrote about the people who had bought what they were told were new campervans at a knockdown price only to find that they had actually been scrapped and were not safe for the road. That story made me think about the watch that Jemma brought me back from Hong Kong. Buying it was an ordeal in itself: Jemma met up with the vendor who showed her a catalogue of the watches he had for sale. Once she had chosen the ones she wanted, he went away and came...
