Golf injuries on the green are rare, but there’s one condition that can develop on the course but present itself slowly—golfer’s elbow. This injury occurs in golfers due to the repetitious elbow motion involved in swinging their clubs and the straightening and bending of the elbow. While golfer’s elbow is often used interchangeably with the term tennis elbow, they are actually sourced by different nerve injuries. Fortunately, we offer both tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow treatment with chiropractic care in Boca Raton.
Once the repetitive nature of sports such as those involving clubs, racquets, throwing or weight lifting has led to damage of the muscles and tendons in the elbow and forearm, the symptoms of golfer’s elbow gradually become apparent. Common symptoms of golfer’s elbow include:
It’s essential to seek treatment as soon as symptoms develop to prevent interference with your daily routine, and chiropractic care can also have you back in the game much sooner than without assistance.
Again, delaying treatment can extend recovery times, and you can actually worsen your injury by ignoring the pain and continuing to use your arm normally. Here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center, our Boca Raton chiropractor Dr. DellaBella has vast experience in sports injury treatment—he even served a chiropractor for the US Olympic team! Some common methods he uses to treat golfer’s elbow include:
After a thorough consultation and evaluation, Dr. DellaBella will establish a treatment plan designed for your specific injury so you get results fast.
