Golf Elbow Pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

People, been suffering with bad 'golfers elbow pain for 3 months.

I don't play golf by the way!

It all started when I was lifting things in my job.

I have taken different pain killers. Tried ice packs. Gel to rub on the points of pain. Pain still bad.

Even having a wash it hurts!

I have to lift in my job. I need my job.

Anyone found a way to relieve the pain or even cure the problem? I did try not lifting for a month as I left my job but it was still there. I returned to work and it is very painful. I have not seen a doctor as I know it is golfers elbow and they would only tell me to rest and take pain killers!

Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi Have you tried going to your doctor, they can prescribe stronger pain killers, you may need a scan or xray, to determine no damage to the bone or muscle.Anti Imflamatories could be whats needed. Ive never had golfers elbow all you can do is give your doctor a chance. hope things get sorted .

    Since its a job related injury you should have reported it to your employer and they would have sent you to a doctor.

    So anyway golfers elbow is also known as tendinitis . You need to go see an ortho who can give you an injection in the elbow. It will likely do wonders for you. Also go out and buy a special band for tendinitis that goes on your arm and sits just below your elbow. Wear that as much as you can but particularly when you are lifting.

    Golfer’s Elbow is actually a tendon injury to the inner portion of the elbow. The tendons that attach to this section of the elbow flex the wrist, curl the fingers and turn the hand palm down. If any of these motions hurt, then you are partially confirming a diagnosis.

    Golfing, just like other rotational sports, can put you at high risk for overuse conditions. Poor mechanics will accelerate the process. When the flexor tendons are damaged from overuse and scar tissue formation, they are more easily reinjured.
