Golf and Wrist Impaction Syndrome

Kare Clinic Chiropractic understands the avid golfer and the importance of being pain free on the golf course. If you are complaining of wrist pain or any other pain, come see our excellent chiropractors at Kare Clinic to get you started on your treatment plan today.

Golf injuries of the wrist are rare, but when they occur they can be devastating for the avid golfer, competitive amateur golfer, or the professional golfer, as the hand and wrist are so integral to the game. The majority of golf injuries are overuse injuries of the wrist flexor or extensor tendons. The left wrist (in the right-handed golfer) is the most common location. Analysis of the golf swing finds excessive motion of the left wrist (in the right-handed golfer), along with a catapulting function, accounting for vulnerability of the left wrist to injury. Hyperextension and radial deviation of the right wrist may cause impingement syndrome and injury may also occur during impact of the swing phase. The majority of golf-induced overuse syndromes of the wrist are successfully treated nonoperatively, but may require restriction from golf for an extended period of time.

Call Kare Clinic today to begin treatment for your pain. The sooner you receive treatment, the sooner you get back on the course pain free.
