Swing Pain-Free: Off The Block Physical Therapy's Guide to Overcoming Common Golf Injuries

Golf is a game of precision, patience, and passion. But for many golfers, the pursuit of the perfect swing can come with its fair share of setbacks in the form of injuries. From the weekend warrior to the seasoned pro, no golfer is immune to the risk of strains, sprains, and overuse injuries. At Off The Block Performance Physical Therapy, we've seen it all – and we're here to help you get back in the game pain-free.

Identifying Common Golf Injuries

Before we delve into how we can help, let's first shed some light on the most common golf-related injuries:

  1. Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis): Characterized by pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow, golfer's elbow is often caused by repetitive gripping and swinging motions.

  2. Rotator Cuff Injuries: The repetitive nature of the golf swing can put significant strain on the muscles and tendons of the shoulder, leading to rotator cuff tears, strains, or tendinitis.

  3. Low Back Pain: The torque generated during the golf swing can place excessive stress on the lower back, resulting in muscle strains, disc herniation, or sciatica.

  4. Wrist Injuries: Overuse or improper technique can lead to wrist sprains, strains, or tendinitis, particularly in the lead wrist (left wrist for right-handed golfers).
