Caused by the overuse of the joints, muscles, and ligaments in the elbow, as well as a poor swing follow-through, golfer’s elbow can cause pain, inflammation, restricted movement, and swelling around the elbow.
Many golfers adopt a bent-over position when playing, which can put a significant amount of stress on the spine. Poor technique, poor conditioning, and trauma can also cause golf-related back pain and injuries, including soft tissue damage and mechanical dysfunction.
A poor swing technique and the premature release of the hands at the top of the backswing can lead to the inflammation of the tendon, resulting in pain in the wrist and at the base of the thumb.
This is mainly caused by excessive twisting of the ankle or wearing the wrong footwear while playing.
Usually caused by poor posture, repetitive overuse, and poor technique, which limits movement and causes pain.
