Swing Safely: Tackling Golf Injuries with Florida OrthoCare

Golfers, like athletes in any sport, face the risk of injury. Recognizing prevalent golf-related injuries and the interventions available from qualified orthopedic surgeons is essential for maintaining player health and performance for those living throughout Palm Beach, Martin, Broward Counties.

Most Common Golf Injuries Florida OrthoCare Orthopedic Doctors Can Treat

Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis):

This condition arises from repetitive forearm muscle use, leading to discomfort and tenderness on the inner elbow. Orthopedic surgeons at Florida OrthoCare offer comprehensive assessments to accurately diagnose golfer’s elbow. Their treatment plans encompass rest, ice therapy, and anti-inflammatory medication. Additionally, tailored physical therapy strengthens the forearm muscles and enhances flexibility, aiding a swift return to the golf course.


Low Back Pain:

Golf swings exert considerable strain on the lower back, making it prone to strains and injuries. Orthopedic surgeons at Florida OrthoCare specialize in diagnosing and treating low back pain in golfers. Our physicians employ a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating rest, physical therapy, and exercises to improve spinal stability and reduce pain. Guidance on proper swing techniques and posture adjustments helps prevent future injuries.


Rotator Cuff Injuries:

The repetitive nature of the golf swing heightens the risk of rotator cuff muscle and tendon damage, resulting in shoulder discomfort and limited mobility. Orthopedic surgeons at Florida OrthoCare use advanced imaging techniques to diagnose rotator cuff injuries accurately. Their personalized treatment plans encompass rest, physical therapy, and corticosteroid injections. Surgical intervention, when necessary, is performed minimally invasively to expedite recovery.


Wrist Injuries (Tendonitis, Sprains):

Golfers frequently experience wrist tendonitis or sprains due to swing impact and repetitive motions. Florida OrthoCare’s orthopedic surgeons conduct thorough evaluations to assess wrist injuries. They devise customized treatment strategies combining rest, splinting, and physical therapy to alleviate pain and restore wrist function. Surgical options, when needed, optimize outcomes and support a safe return to golfing activities.

Knee Injuries (Meniscus Tears, Tendonitis):

Golf swings can stress the knees, leading to meniscus tears or tendonitis. Orthopedic surgeons at Florida OrthoCare specialize in diagnosing and treating knee injuries in golfers. Their treatment modalities, including rest, medication, physical therapy, and minimally invasive surgery, alleviate pain and enhance knee function. Patients are supported in resuming golfing pursuits with confidence.
