Acupuncture for Golfers Elbow

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Western medicine seems to fall short when it comes to dealing with Golfer's Elbow condition. Aside from PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy-- an expensive and painful method- there doesn't appear to be much available. I read an article by Nick Carangi in the Journal of Medical Innovation that details a needle based treatment process that totally resolves Tennis Elbow.

I imagine that G.E. can be treated with the same process, more or less. Has anyone tried acupuncture therapy? If so, what successes or challenges have you had?

I tried it for the same reason. More of a placebo thing. I don't really have any evidence to say it works or not.

But best to stick with R.I.C.E. it's conventional and safe and sure bet.

I don't have golfer's elbow but I use a lacrosse ball to massage out my muscles and I bet it would do you some good to rub out the muscles around your elbow.  They only cost about 3 bucks and have been a lifesaver for me. I bet it would help you along with R.I.C.E. treatment.
