The key to preventing golfer’s elbow is to avoid overuse. Stop if you feel any elbow pain during an activity.
You may also bring on golfer’s elbow using the wrong equipment, like a golf club or tennis racket that is too heavy or that has a grip that is too large. Bad technique — like using the wrong posture for a swing — can also lead to tennis elbow. You should also:
- Stretch and warm up before any sport or activity that will exercise your elbow or arm.
- Ice your elbow after exercise
