Physiotherapy on Golfer’s Elbow
The condition is known as "golfer's elbow" produces pain at the bony bump on the inside of the elbow and may radiate to the forearm area. Long periods of swinging a golf club, tossing a ball, rowing, hammering, painting, shaking hands, twisting a doorknob, lifting weights, or using tools like screwdrivers can all result in pain.
The muscles on the inside of the elbow and the forearm are painful, swollen, and irritated when a person has a golfer's elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis. The tendons, bones, and muscles in this region, which are required for gripping and wrist flexion, have been overused, which is the cause of this condition.
How does physiotherapy help?
Physiotherapy aims to relieve pain and speed up healing by doing the following:
- Until the pain diminishes, take a break from a repeated activity like playing golf or other sports. This will help to lessen elbow pain.
- Ice massage to relieve swelling
- Reduce the stress on your elbow by bandaging or bracing the joint.
- Exercises for flexibility, progressive strengthening, and joint range of motion are beneficial for restoring normal muscle strength and joint range of motion.slowly get back to your activitie
