It’s hard to play your best golf game when your wrists, forearms and elbows aren’t at theirs.
Whether you’re out on the course playing 18 holes, going through buckets of balls on the driving range, or even working on your putting skills, golfers will put their bodies in straining positions and participate in repetitive movements.
Over time, this can lead to a condition known as golfer's elbow, where one will experience pain in the tendons of forearm muscles that attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain might spread into your forearm and wrist, according to Mayo Clinic.
Similar to tennis elbow, which occurs on the outside of the elbow, the aches and pains one feels from golfer's elbow can be treated with rest and the appropriate treatments.
How can The Abacus help those with elbow pain suffering from golfer's elbow?
If you have a painful or debilitating hand, wrist, or arm condition, it’s best to get specific guidance from a medical professional. People diagnosed with tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow should follow recommendations from their physicians and physical or occupational therapists to increase strength and mobility, and prevent any recurring injuries. Professional treatment focuses first on easing pain, then adding massage, stretching, and strengthening to improve function.
People with elbow pain symptoms often use their forearm muscles in repetitive, vigorous ways. Self-massage with the Abacus provides convenient access to self therapy – forearm rolling and forearm compression techniques help release tension, restore gliding of muscles and fascia, increase movement, and improve function of the forearm, elbow, and wrist. You can also target the elbow directly with elbow rolling and elbow compression techniques. These movements help release tension, restores gliding of muscles and fascia, improves hydration and mobility of muscles and fascia, and increases elbow movement and function.
Along with a visit to a doctor, the Abacus can provide the self massage restorative care golfer's elbow requires to get you back into the swing of things.
