Golfing Injuries

Common pains from golfing can include:

- Back pain
- Tennis elbow/Golfer’s elbow
- Knee pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Wrist injuries

Many of these issues can be resolved by identifying and correcting poor form with your golf swing. However, this can only get you so far. Should you still be feeling pain or dysfunction, it may be a case that you need to add some strengthening exercise into part of your routine if it is not already there.

Strengthening your muscles can allow them to stretch and contract at force a lot easier as they become more used to movement and weight bearing. This will increase the capacity of golf you can play before you feel any such pains or discomfort coming on.

Another possible reason for these pains is overuse of the muscles. In this case, you may be doing more harm than good gritting your teeth and ploughing through the pain. Our tendons and muscles require a certain amount of recovery time to rest and rebuild their structures in order to prepare for the next round. If they do not get this rest, they can become inflamed and painful.
