Golf injuries affect 15-20% of golfers each year. Golf injuries are commonly related to overuse, but some traumatic injuries can occur on the golf course.
Golf provides its own very specific injury problems. The most common golf injuries are:
• Lower Back Pain
• Golfers Elbow
• Knee Pain
• Shoulder Pain
Research indicates that recreational golfers tend to sustain more golf injuries than professional level golfers and that more injuries occur as players get older. Generally, overuse injuries tend to occur as we get older because the joint and tendon tissues become less able to withstand stress. Due to the number of golfers we see at Sorrento Physiotherapy, we are highly experienced at the assessment and treatment of golfing injuries.
Early intervention is the key for most of these injuries.
