Golfer’s Elbow Treatment in Boca Raton at Shadowood Chiropractic Center
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 for sports injuries, here at our office in Boca Raton.
Symptoms of Golfer’s Elbow
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:
Mild to significant pain and tenderness in the inner elbow
Pain that radiates down to your forearm
Wrist and hand weakness
Stiff elbow joints
Numbness and tingling that radiates into the fingers similar to tendonitis
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.
Chiropractic Treatment for Golfer’s Elbow and Golf Injuries
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:
Moist Heat and Cryotherapy
Muscle Release Therapy
Extremity and Spinal Adjustments
Electric Muscle Stimulation
Cold Laser Therapy
In-office and At-home Exercises and Stretches
After a thorough consultation and evaluation, Dr. DellaBella will establish a treatment plan designed for your specific injury so you get results fast.
