  1. Only been playing 6 months, and admittedly I am no spring chicken, however this is crazy. I have shoulder impingement in my right shoulder, tennis elbow in my left arm, I am starting to get golfers elbow in my right arm, and my left shoulder is also showing signs of impingement. I spend the evening transferring ice packs and heat pads from one part of my body to another. As well as this I have tried various exercises, which to be honest appear to make the problems worse. When I play, I go out on the course strapped up like a mummy, covered up by a jacket so I don't look to stupid. Someone once
  2. I have a question for everyone, especially the older golfers like me. After you play or practice, do you have any kind of aches and pains? I'm 62, and I am finding that I have to take at least a day or two in between practicing or playing. I have little backaches, or my elbows are sore. I wind up taking anti-inflammatories to deal with it, Advil and the like. Lately, I have been taking Advil prior to playing 18 holes, to suppress any minor back twinges or elbow pain in the middle of the round. These are minor aches and pains, but they can be distracting and affect my swing durin
  3. Just wanted to share my golfers elbow update. (Left elbow, right handed golfer) I have had this since September of last year. Did the ice, rest, PT thing and did not play for 6 months over the winter it never went away. I got 2 shots, both lasted only 5-6 weeks. As for my current activity, the orthopedic doctor I am seeing said "do whatever you want, my experience is that you won't make it worse" so I play 2-3 times a week --- I do wear a band when golfing or doing anything that puts strain on the arm. It gets more sore a day or two after playing, then settles down again
  4. I developed "tennis elbow" in my right elbow (right hand player). I do not play tennis. I don't think it was from playing golf and was by bad ergonomics working on a computer all day holding a microphone, but it gets worse playing golf. Tried one of those braces you put in the upper forearm with minimal relief. Just ordered one of those braces that will put heat or cold over the outer elbow. Someone suggested an injection of steroids but I think that would mask the problem. I am doing some forearm exercises, not playing as much and changed the way I do some things at work but not much im
  5. IM new here and not no tiger woods I would rate myself as a intermediate beginner. Yesterday I was out playing golf and before we started I was at the driving range with my driver and after a couple hits I felt a sharp pain in my lower right arm elbow area and today my whole lower arm is black and blue swollen. Have no clue what has happened. And very frustrated with my drives, I cant seem to be constant with hitting the ball straight and was wondering if I can get some advice with my driver and clubs and what could have happened to my right arm area. Thanks,
  6. I have been diagnosed with tennis elbow and have to wear a brace when playing golf. Can anybody recommend one? I am currently wearing an Ace brand with a strap that goes over the affected tendon. It works great, but given that I have to wear it every day, I want to get an extra or two so that I can rotate them and allow it to air out. Does anybody have a recommendation? Here is what I am wearing now.. http://www.amazon.com/ACE-Elbow-Strap/dp/B006BV08P4/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie;=UTF8&qid;=1407169183&sr;=1-1&keywords;=ace+elbow+strap
  7. Am 49 years old, played golf off and on since I was 17. Never knew how to properly hold a club or really how to hit a golf ball. It was baseball grip and whack away. Started back playing about 11 months ago and decided to try to do it right. Read that my old grip could cause shoulder, elbow, and wrist problems so I started getting the grip out of my palms and hitting down on the ball. Well after about ten rounds got a pain in my elbow and it has lasted for two months. Tried ice, Advil and a topical cream a member here suggested, nothing helped. Broke down saw a doctor he said it was tennis
  8. I play a lot of racquetball, plus I'm getting old, and I had to take a 4 week break from golf because my arm is killing me. I finally hit balls at the range last night, and it's still bothering me. My instructor was there giving another lesson and I talked to him for a minute and he said that a lot of guys play with one of those straps on their arm and it doesn't seem to bother most people. I know that The Mechanic wears one of these. Any of you guys wear one and were you still able to swing alright? I have one already and I'm going to give it a go this weekend.
  9. Hi from PA. this is my first post. I was on another golf forum, but it took weeks to get a response if you got one at all. It was a morgue compared to here. I found this one Saturday and got more information on golfers elbow than I got from my doctors ! I heard of tennis/golf elbow before but never realized how painful it could be. Never is on someone else ! It started in August, I had to quit October 1. I have not played since then, was diagnosed in November, got a shot that only lasted 5 weeks but was not told to do any stretching or exercises.. I then went to an ortho
  10. Just some soreness that I can get over on a night's rest, but could this be a swing flaw? I think it comes from keeping my left arm straight on the backswing to the top...is this normal or am I doing something wrong?? If so...are there any remedies? I feel that this affects me a little throughout my round as well...
  11. 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?
  12. For those of you who have suffered tennis elbow (outside the elbow as opposed to golfer's elbow which is inside the elbow), how long did you layoff from golf for it to completely heal?
  13. I have been having pain in my right wrist for the last year and a half. I saw a hand specialist this week and after an X ray of my wrist, I have arthritis. I do not want to stop playing golf, I love this game. What can I do to keep playing? Change equipment, wrist brace, therapy, medication? This doctor I saw was worthless in giving me ideas to keep playing.
  14. There a couple of threads here talking about treating G elbow... ice, stretching, etc. After ending my second season in a row with a severe case of G elbow (inside, right elbow, RH golfer) I would very much to start a discussion on how to PREVENT it. Yes, I play over 100 rounds a year... but so does everyone in my double foresome. And yet I am the only one crippled by the end of the season. No fun when your grip strength is so weakened you can not push the top on a can of shave cream or your toothbrush falls out of your grip! Is it my grip? Grips? I use sturdy grips, not the soft
  15. i did some searching and saw a lot of threads on golfer's elbow, but none really that addressed my question. for a while i was playing once a week and the elbow over time would be occasionally sore after a round. and it would just be tender, nothing really that unordinary or worth being frustrated or concerned with. a few weeks ago though i started going to the range a time or two during the week. for about 2 weeks straight i probably went to the range 6 times and played 4 rounds, so pretty much every other day i was hitting a lot of balls. after than my elbow got really sore after
  16. 6 months ago I noticed a small joint/tendon pain in my right elbow, especially when I would bounce balls on the face of a wedge when bored, so I stopped. Just getting worse.. Currently I can't lift anything over 30lbs using my right bicep without pain.. I'm only 40 and starting to get concerned.. anyone else with similar probs? I hate doctors... I can't tell if its a forearm tendon or elbow ligament. I only play once a week... And taking breaks seems to do nothing... :-(
  17. I've been plagued with a bad back for many years. I have a bulging disc and have been warned if I keep playing it will cause further damage. I'm not what they consider a "surgical candidate" now, but my back is giving me fits. I battle sciatic nerve issues and muscle fatigue every time I play. My chiropractor bill is sometimes as high as my monthly dues at the club. The point being, its becoming too much. If I keep playing I could end up having a surgery, and in the meantime I'm going through serious discomfort. My question is, should I just quit playing altogether and save my bac
  18. I am a lefty and my right forearm is sore. Based on Dr Google it doesn't sound quite like tennis or golf elbow based on where I am feeling it. It's sore on the outside of my forearm, about halfway between my elbow and wrist. When I flex my forearm, I feel it at the most muscular part. Is there a way to easily tell whether this is simple muscle soreness from developing muscles that I haven't used much before (I've only been playing golf for about 6 mos and have been playing a lot more lately), or a sign of something more ominous to come? All I've done so far is stretching (stan
  19. I've noticed in the past couple months that whenever I go out and shoot a great round (for me, that's anywhere in the 80's right now), the next day my right elbow is always sore. It doesn't get that way when I'm playing crappy, just when I'm making reasonably good contact with the ball. Coincidence or am I doing something different with my swing that's working, but is a bit hard on the body?
  20. I finished last season (Dec) with a serious case of golfer's elbow... right arm. After 4 months off I felt I would start the season fresh. BUT after just 2 rounds I can already begin to fell the tightness returning. This year I plan on using an "aircast" strap. Last year's neoprene strap helped but didn't prevent the tightness returning by round's end. I need some suggestions & advice.... First, Why after 20 years of golf am I suddenly suffering from this.... I did change a few grips (went firmer) but find it hard to believe that is the cause? What should I look for in my swing
  21. I just started learning to golf five months ago. I am 47 years old and in excellent health. I lift weights and do martial arts several times every week. I practice golf three times per week, and have hit more than 11,000 balls at the driving range. At first, lots of things would get sore (palm of my left hand, blister on one of my right hand fingers, etc.), but after a while everything felt more normal - especially as my coach started to improve my swing. But my right arm has continued to stay sore, and actually feels like it might be starting to get worse. The pain area is f
  22. Since I retired 3 years ago I have averaged more than 110 rounds a year. For Upstate NY that is quite a bit of golf. About a week ago, seemingly out of nowhere I have developed am annoying pain on the inside of my right elbow. Internet diagnosis is a rather classic case of golfer's elbow. I have not played in nearly a week and the pain is still there. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me... First, could the pain be a result of my re-gripping my pitching wedge and 9 iron? I regripped with Lamkin N-Dur with the right hand build up with extra tape. I really can not think of any ot
  23. I have to get this story out to any golfers that suffer for tennis elbow. I'll try to keep this short. I bought my slightly used Titleist 735CM off ebay and the clubs were listed as standard everything. When I got them I found the grips to be midsized. I have average size hands so I've always played standard grips. I was too cheap to change the grips so I played 1 year with the grips. I'm a basically a driving range rat. When it was time to re-grip I did it myself and went back to standard with 1 wrap of tape. After about 2 months I started getting some mild tennis elbow. By the end o
  24. Can anyone who has experienced "Golfers Elbow" aka tendonitis/tendinosis, give some tips or information based on their experience. I caused the injury by playing golf and/or hitting balls at the range almost daily on a quest to break 80. I strained a muscle in my upper back region and strained my elbow. I quit playing golf completely for 4-5 months and the pain hasn't really gone away. I have read that tendinosis can last several months as tendons take a long time to heal. I don't have health insurance so I can't afford to go to a doctor and go through the myriad of tests
  25. Anyone had surgery for Tennis Elbow and if so, how long before you were back playing again. In addition was surgery a success? Thanks
