Bad Mechanics?

Golfers are prone to the same tendinitis as tennis players, and in 90% of case strain the same tendons. In Golf, poor muscle strength or bad body mechanics will transfer most of the shock from the impact of the club to your wrists and elbows. Despite the weight of a golf ball, the impact of the club on the ball generates surprising force on the elbow and wrist joints.

A unnaturally tight grip can also irritate the problem, exaggerating the shock of the golf swing. The trauma created by the swing can inflame the tendons at the elbow (tendintis) and in severe cases cause scarring. Go to an Apple a Day to see how fitness can help your swing, or for more information on tennis or golfer's elbow, visit the Body Chart.
