The most common types of golf injuries are:

Overuse, poor swing mechanics, incorrect grip, inappropriate set up, and traumatic force to the body can cause injuries in different parts of the body. Rehab Store provides healthcare product and therapy for the following injuries:

  • Back Pain Back pain is caused by the rotational stresses of the swing that places enormous pressure on the spine
  • Knee Pain Knee pain occurs from the stress placed on a weak knee, which results in torn ligaments. The golfers with arthritis suffer more from this problem.
  • Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon) Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, and swelling in tendons responsible for wrist movement, are all caused by repetitive movements such as hitting golf balls. These types of injuries are aggravated by an improper swing motion.
  • Neck Injuries Long hours of swinging and hitting balls can cause the neck muscles to shorten in spasm and freeze into a painful position
  • Foot and Ankle Injuries Each foot moves differently during a golf swing. Injuries can occur when a golfer loses balance during the swing and when hitting a ball off an uneven surface.
  • Rotator Cuff Traumatic force resulting from poor golf swing mechanics, hitting a rock, and overuse, can cause pain in the shoulder or upper arm.
  • Hand and Finger Injuries Holding the golf club with repetitive movements and swings leads to tendinitis or broken finger and might develop HHS (Hypothenar Hammer Syndrome).
  • Hip Injuries Groin strains and low back injuries are caused by twisting movements during the golf swing. Under some critical conditions, one has to undergo hip-replacement surgery as well.
