Golf and tennis players are prone to specific sports injuries due to repetitive stress. Injuries like tennis and golf elbow are not typically dangerous, but they can put you out of commission for a while. We understand that getting back into the game fast is important, so we offer regenerative medicine, pain management, and other treatments to help you feel better quickly.
What Causes Tennis and Golf Elbow?
As their names suggest, tennis and golf elbow are caused by repetitive arm movements while playing the respective sports. Repetitive stress, often by forceful wrist and finger motions, can make the elbow feel stiff. In these injuries, hands and wrists may feel weak as well.
Services for Tennis and Golf Elbow
The RICE method, or “rest, ice, compression, elevation,” is excellent for addressing sports injuries. Additionally, regenerative therapies can prove effective in improving your condition quickly. Physical therapy can help you employ proper recovery techniques and stretches to prevent future injuries. All of these services are offered here at Global Clinic.
