What is Golfer’s Elbow?

Golfer’s elbow is a condition that most commonly affects golfers but can affect anyone who regularly performs repetitive arm motions.

It may be caused by many different factors such as using the incorrect technique when swinging a golf club or playing tennis, overuse from throwing sports like cricket and baseball, or even from performing duties at work such as typing on a keyboard too much.

Golfer’s elbow is felt at the inside of the elbow and is caused by a strain to the tendons and ligaments around the medial epicondyle (the bony bump on your arm).

What Causes Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s elbow can be caused by a number of things, but the main reason is overuse of the muscles in the forearm. It can happen when an individual performs actions such as typing on a keyboard, throwing sports like cricket and baseballs, or even just playing tennis too much!

Physiotherapy Care

Our physiotherapists are on hand to assess and diagnose your condition. Once this has been done, they will develop an individual treatment plan for you which is all about treating golfer’s elbow.

Our aim with the physiotherapy treatments we offer is to first reduce pain through massage techniques or joint mobilizations at our clinic in Dublin before moving on to a full rehabilitation program consisting of exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff and elbow muscles.

Spinal Decompression & Joint Traction 

The next step in your treatment plan is to start using spinal decompression and joint traction. This helps by restoring the movement within your elbow, reducing pain, increasing strength, improving range of motion, as well as speeding up recovery time after the golfer’s elbow surgery.

Exercise Therapy 

We have a team of exercise physiotherapists here to help you with an individualized rehabilitation program. It focuses on treating golfer’s elbow by strengthening the muscles which support the medial epicondyle.

Once this has been completed, we can then progress onto sport-specific exercises that are designed for your specific needs including sports like golf or tennis.

On top of that, we also offer manual therapy (spinal adjustments and mobilizations) to treat any associated neck pain you may be experiencing due golfer’s elbow. Once this has been completed, it is time for you to start using intrinsic core strengthening.

Laser Therapy 

We also offer laser therapy for golfer’s elbow at our clinic in Dublin. This is a non-invasive treatment that uses light to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and reduce pain, swelling, as well as increase blood flow which helps with recovery.
