Golf


 

Golf

Such a great sport as there is no age limit and it has many unwritten rules. Focus, execution, and etiquette are important aspects of this game. Because golf is a sport with significant rotational movements involving the core muscles (hips, pelvis, spine, abdominals), the shoulders, and arms, injuries can occur due to the repetitive motion and the effects of coiling and uncoiling the swing. Some common injuries include

Shoulder

  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Shoulder impingement

Elbow

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow

Hand and wrist

  • Tendonitis
  • Sprain and strain

Spine

  • Arthritis
  • Disc herniation
  • Sprains and strains

Hip

  • Arthritis
  • Labral tear

Knee

  • Meniscus tear
  • Patellofemoral pain

***If you are suffering from one of these injuries, or any other injury, schedule an appointment with Sports Health Northwest We want to help you get back to sport.
