GOLFERS ELBOW treatment in Melbourne
IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING WITH GOLFERS ELBOW, YOU MAY NEED TREATMENT TO THE ARMPIT AND CHEST
If you need help with Golfers Elbow, then you’ve come to the right place!
Golfers Elbow or Medial Epicondylitis is injury or pain at the bony prominence on the inside of your elbow. This injury is typified as an overuse injury, and is referred to as ‘Golfers’ elbow, as the repetitive action of a golf swing is known to cause the issue. Don’t be fooled however, you don’t need to play or have played golf to be suffering from this injury.
Your practitioner at Melbourne Muscular Therapies will place you through a series of questions, postural assessments and movement/strength tests, before ascertaining exactly why this injury is occurring. Often, treatment is needed to the overused muscles in the forearm, as well as muscles in the upper arm, shoulder, and chest. Most commonly, the biceps, pec major/minor, and subscapularis (armpit). Following treatment, your practitioner will prescribe a series of exercises to be completed as homework.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
CLEAN FIRST, BUILD SECOND!
At Melbourne Muscular Therapies we have a two-pronged approach to treatment of dysfunction.
1. The first is to ‘clean’ the body, by using our slow and penetrating technique which hits deep into the heart of the dysfunction and realigns and removes any irregularities in body tissues. This ‘cleaning’ process repairs any acute issues such as pain or immobility, which is the perfect thing to bring you quickly back to physical function and health.
2. The second is to ‘build’ the body, through our specialised strength and conditioning programs. By ‘build’ we mean realign and balance the body so that the muscular chains work in synergy, rather than having points of weakness. If the body is unbalanced, then the muscles will compensate which places pressure on the surrounding structures, ultimately leading muscular tightness and fatigue. Our ‘building’ programs are designed to ‘build up’ your weak points so that your movement pattern is permanently improved, which results in good posture and long-term sustainable physical health.
What is Golfers Elbow
Golfers Elbow, or Medial Epicondylitis, is pain or injury at the bony prominence on the inside of the elbow. It is typified as an overuse injury to the muscles in the forearm that attach that the inside of the elbow.
What exercises help relieve Golfers Elbow?
Initially, rest, heat, and compression to the side is required. Gentle release work to the tendons and muscles attaching to the inside of the elbow is needed to alleviate pain. Often, treatment to the biceps, subscapularis, and pecs are also needed. Support bracing/banding is often used to create a compressive feeling to the muscles at the elbow.
Based in two locations, one in Richmond to serve our clients in the inner city of Melbourne and our Ferntree Gully clinic to serve the eastern suburbs, our goal is to help as many people as possible live pain-free. Experience deep tissue massage as it should be.
