At Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness Center, Dr. Richard Schwartz often sees patients who are suffering from golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis. This condition is characterized by pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow and is caused by overuse or strain of the muscles and tendons in the forearm. It is commonly seen in golfers, hence the name, but can also affect other athletes and individuals who perform repetitive motions with their arms.
Golfer’s elbow can be quite debilitating, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks and participate in activities that require the use of the affected arm. If left untreated, it can become a chronic condition that is difficult to resolve.
So how can chiropractic care help with golfer’s elbow? First and foremost, chiropractic treatment can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the elbow. By addressing any underlying issues and promoting proper healing, chiropractic care can help to alleviate discomfort and improve function.
In addition to pain relief, chiropractic care can also help to improve overall elbow function and prevent future episodes of golfer’s elbow. This may include addressing any imbalances or weaknesses in the muscles and tendons of the arm, as well as providing guidance on proper stretching and strengthening exercises.
If you are suffering from a golfer’s elbow and are seeking relief, don’t hesitate to give chiropractic care a try. It may just be the solution you need to get back to enjoying the activities you love.
