Little League Elbow


Little league elbow, also known as medial epicondyle apophysitis, is a condition characterized by inflammation and pain in the inner part of the elbow, specifically at the growth plate of the medial epicondyle. It is commonly seen in young athletes, particularly those involved in throwing sports such as baseball and softball. The condition results from repetitive stress on the elbow joint, leading to overuse and injury of the growth plate.
