Causes and Effects of Common Golf Injuries

As anyone who has ever played the game can testify, golf is not an easy,‚Äč passive, or sedentary sport. Even a basic golf swing places serious demands on the back, legs, hips, knees, wrists, ankles, and elbows. This makes you vulnerable to many kinds of repetitive motion or overuse injuries. These include:

  • Golfer's elbow - Golfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is a cousin to tennis elbow, although different tissues are involved in each condition. Repetitive strain on the muscles and tendons attached to the inside of the elbow result in chronic pain and inflammation.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome - The grip you must maintain on your club can aggravate the tissues in the wrist's carpal tunnel, causing them to swell up and pinch the median nerve that serves the fingers.
  • Back pain - Twisting of the back can lead to muscle strain and spinal alignment problems, especially if you already have degenerative disc disease or an untreated misalignment.
  • Rotator cuff injuries - Too many swings can tear or strain the muscles that make up your shoulder's rotator cuff.
  • Knee pain - Your knees take a lot of stress during a golf game or practice session, making them vulnerable to damage and chronic pain.

Safe, Effective Treatment via Chiropractic Care

Our Boca Raton chiropractor, Dr. Caruso, has extensive experience treating sports injuries. By evaluating your stance, gait swing, symptoms, and musculoskeletal alignment, we can diagnose your golf injury as well as its underlying cause. We can then create a non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation program featuring:

  • Chiropractic adjustment to straighten out your spinal alignment and weight distribution
  • Spinal decompression to combat spinal nerve impingement
  • Massage therapy to soothe soft tissue pain and help injured tissues heal themselves
  • Physical therapy to help you rehabilitate your injury and strengthen your body against future gold injuries
