1. Golf lower back injury

Studies have revealed that golf back injury is the key reason why most golfers stop playing. Approximately 34% of golfers have restricted play due to golf lower back injury. It is caused by poor swing mechanics in amateur golfers and overuse for professional golfers. Golf swing exerts significant force on the spine.
Symptoms of golf back pain

The most common symptom of golf lower back injury includes:

  • Lower back discomfort with radiation into the leg.
  • Numbness and tingling sound.
  • Burning sensation.

The major risk factor in golf is poor flexibility. Surveys have proved that 80% of golfers warm-up for less than 10 minutes. Proper warm up increases the body’s flexibility, which in turn ensures the right golf swings. The repetitive nature of the sport during a play causes continuous strain on already injured muscles.

2. Golfers elbow pain

This is the inflammation of the tendons that link the elbow to the forearm. The condition is caused by overuse. It is most common in right-handed novice golfers. Golfer’s elbow is common in people with a poor weight shift. The stress of the ball impacts directly on the muscles of the forearm.
Causes of golfers elbow
  • Tenderness and pain on the inner part of the shoulder.
  • Stiffness in the elbow.
  • Numbness and tingling.
Risk factors
Postural support of the neck, spine, and shoulder plays a significant role in the distribution of forces all over the forearm and elbow. Wrist mobility is also an important factor in the development of stress to the lateral elbow.

3. Golf Knee Injury

This is not a common golf injury with only 10% occurrence among golfers. However, participating in the sport may worsen pre-existing knee problems. There are three bones at the knee that is patella, tibia, and femur. The muscles that are important to knee functions are quadriceps and hamstrings. In the event of a golf knee injury, these parts are affected, and this limits movement.
Symptoms, diagnostic, and treatment

Most of the pain is felt below or above the patella. Most golf knee injuries are diagnosed based on the clinical presentation, history, tissue palpation, orthopedic testing, and observational movement analysis.

We have experts and modern treatment methods such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy to treat knee injuries.

4. Golf Hip Injury

The most common golf hip injuries include muscle strains and hip instability. A lot of motion within the hip joint causes instability. Muscle strain occurs when the fibers comprising the muscles are damaged. Differential diagnosis of hip injuries is based on radiology such as MRI, ultrasound, and X-ray.
