What are some common types of golf injuries?


At Change The Game Performance Therapy, we can help you find relief for any injury you may be experiencing. Some common types of sports injuries include:


  • GOLFER'S ELBOW. This condition is used to describe an overuse golf injury that causes muscle inflammation inside the elbow. This injury runs from the bony point of your elbow and can stretch down your forearm, making it difficult to extend or lift your arm. Golfer’s elbow can make it difficult to perform your sport, especially with swinging motions.

  • FlEXOR TENDINITIS. This is an overuse injury that causes swelling in the tendons that control your hand movement, making it difficult to bend your fingers and move your hand or elbow. Flexor tendinitis is typically associated with golf, as it is a sport that requires constant swinging.

  • ROTATOR CUFF INJURY . Rotator cuff injury can occur from either acute or overuse causes. For example, partaking in repetitive swinging motions, such as those associated with golf, can all result in rotator cuff injury. This occurs when the muscles or tendons that surround the shoulder joint become overused.
