Golf Elbow

Chiropractic Care for Golf Elbow

Golf elbow, medically known as medial epicondylitis, is a common condition among golfers and other athletes who engage in repetitive arm motions. This condition, characterized by pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow, can significantly impact performance and quality of life. Fortunately, at Chiropractic Associates in Wichita Falls, our experienced chiropractors offer effective treatment options to help alleviate golf elbow symptoms and restore optimal function.


Understanding Golf Elbow

Golf elbow is a form of tendonitis that affects the tendons on the inner side of the elbow, specifically those connected to the muscles responsible for wrist and finger flexion. While the name suggests a connection to golf, this condition can develop from any repetitive gripping or wrist flexion activity, such as tennis, gardening, or manual labor. Common symptoms of golf elbow include pain, tenderness, and stiffness on the inner side of the elbow, as well as weakness in the affected arm.

Taking A Comprehensive Chiropractic Approach

At Chiropractic Associates, we understand the unique challenges posed by golf elbow and other sports-related injuries. Our skilled chiropractors take a comprehensive approach to treatment, addressing not only the symptoms but also the underlying cause of the condition. Through a combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapies, and rehabilitative exercises, we aim to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and promote healing.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Pain Relief

Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulations, are a cornerstone of chiropractic care for golf elbow. By carefully manipulating the joints of the spine and extremities, our chiropractors can help restore proper alignment and function, relieving pressure on the affected nerves and reducing pain. Additionally, chiropractic adjustments can improve blood flow and nutrient delivery to the injured tissues, facilitating the healing process.

Soft Tissue Therapies and Rehabilitation

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractors may recommend various soft tissue therapies, such as massage, myofascial release, and instrument-assisted techniques, to address muscle tension and inflammation associated with golf elbow. We also offer tailored rehabilitation exercises designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the elbow joint, improve flexibility, and prevent future injuries.
