What Is Golfer’s Elbow?

Medial epicondylitis, also known as golfer’s elbow, is caused by repetitive motions, such as swinging a golf club over and over again. Sufferers will often experience pain, tingling or stiffness in the elbow.

Although we often refer to medial epicondylitis as golfer’s elbow, it does not just affect golfers. It can occur in any sporting activity where the arms and wrists are used in repetitive patterns, such as baseball or tennis.

Golfer’s elbow occurs when the tendons in the forearm muscle, which are connected to the bone on the inside of the elbow, become swollen and painful from overuse.

Not only does golfer’s elbow cause pain and stiffness in the elbow, but it can also radiate down the arm and into the wrist and fingers, causing tingling and numbness. As well as disrupting your swing, golfer’s elbow can interfere with everyday activities, like picking something up or opening a door.

Golfer’s Elbow Treatment

Golfer’s elbow can have a huge impact on your physical and mental well-being. Thankfully, golfer’s elbow treatment is extremely effective when it comes to eliminating pain and improving range of movement.

Golfer’s elbow treatment depends on the individual and their own unique requirements. Physiotherapy for golfer’s elbow includes a range of techniques, which can be used on their own or in combinations, to improve symptoms.

Manual therapy, which involves sports massage, joint manipulations, mobilisation, and stretching, is used to improve mobility, reduce pain, and treat trigger points.

Physiotherapists may also use kinesio-taping, which involves applying tape to the affected area to relieve pain and reduce the pressure on tendons, muscles, and ligaments during recovery.

Why Anatomy Rehab Are Experts in Sports Injury Treatment

Our highly trained team of DHA-licensed physiotherapists are experts when it comes to providing sports injury treatment. Whether you are a professional golfer or someone who just enjoys the sport, we know how important it is to get you back to doing what you love as soon as possible.

Everyone is different, so a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to sports injury treatment is ineffective. Instead, our physiotherapists take the time to get to know each patient individually.

This allows us to create treatment plans that are tailored for each patient. The result of this client-centred approach to golfer’s elbow treatment means that our patients recover faster and quickly return to their usual activities.

We focus on rehabilitation, which is essential when recovering from a sports injury. Our physiotherapists help clients strengthen their muscles and improve flexibility in and around the affected elbow.

This not only means that they can get back to the course, but it also reduces the risk of becoming injured again.

A key part of any of our golfer’s elbow treatment plans includes giving clients the knowledge to play golf safely and avoid further injury.
