Golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow – Just a problem with the forearm?

Pain in the forearm is not uncommon for many golfers. There can be many different reasons for this occurring.  

  • Decreased range of motion in the wrist
  • Trauma to the area
  • Hitting heavily into the ground making large divots
  • Lack of trunk rotation
  • Decreased shoulder blade control
  • Moving too close to the ball in the downswing
  • Decreased control at the pelvis

Each case is individual to each person and needs to be addressed accordingly. If only the forearm is addressed for the treatment of the pain and the causative factor is not addressed, there is a high probability the pain will be a recurring issue.
