Elbow story…we will call the patient Joe
Joe was experiencing medial epicondylitis (Golfer’s elbow) on both elbows. This pain also referred to their wrist and into the shoulder. This injury occurred due to the type of training Joe was doing and the hypermobility in their wrists and elbows. They wanted to train and become stronger by putting their body into different positions and pushing their body to the limit, such as training through learning handstands.
