Elbow Pain: Treating Golfer’s Elbow

As a physiotherapist, I see golfer’s elbow frequently. This isn’t surprising – it plagues people who love activities like golf, but also those with repetitive gripping motions in their daily work. The pain on the inner elbow joint stems from small damages in the tendons that bend your wrist.

The good news? Physiotherapy offers a non-invasive path to recovery and they can help with treating golfer’s elbow. Our physiotherapists at Capital Physiotherapy Footscray will provide you with a thorough initial consultation. This will include tests to pinpoint the exact location and severity of your pain. Based on this, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan just for you!

In the early stages, we’ll focus on reducing inflammation and pain. This might involve activity modification – swapping out aggravating tasks or finding alternative ways to perform them. Manual therapy techniques like massage and possibly even ultrasound can also be helpful. Some gentle home exercises will also be provided.

As the pain subsides, the focus shifts to strengthening the muscles that support your wrist and elbow. This doesn’t involve heavy weights – we’ll start with gentle, targeted exercises that progressively increase in intensity.

Here’s the key: this rehabilitation journey is a partnership. Our physiotherapists at Capital Physiotherapy will guide you through every step with treating golfer’s elbow, as well as tailoring exercises to your specific needs, and adjusting the program as you progress. Open communication is crucial – don’t hesitate to ask questions or voice any concerns.

By following the treatment plan diligently and dedicating yourself to the rehabilitation process, you’ll be well on your way to regaining pain-free movement and returning to your favorite activities, swing or no swing. Remember, consistency is key! Let’s work together to get you back to doing what you love.
