Body Pain

Golfer’s Elbow

Golfer’s elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow.
Golfer’s elbow is similar to tennis elbow, which occurs on the outside of the elbow. It’s not limited to golfers. Tennis players and others who repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers also can develop golfer’s elbow.


Besides golf, many activities and occupations can lead to golfer’s elbow, including:

  • Improper technique with tennis stroke in racket sports
  • Improper pitching technique in baseball, softball, football, archery and javelin throwing
  • Lifting weights using improper technique like curling the wrists during a biceps exercise
  • Forceful, repetitive occupational movements in fields such as construction, plumbing and carpentry


Golfer’s elbow is characterized by:

  • Pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow
  • Stiffness might deprive from making a fist and elicit pain
  • Weakness in hands and wrists
  • Numbness or tingling in fingers — usually the ring and little fingers

Acupuncture is the Only Proven Solution for Eliminating Golfer’s Elbow Condition

The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

Despite the fact that rest and over-the-counter pain relievers often can temporary help relieve tennis elbow pain and your doctor might suggest surgery, in our clinic we help our patients to get rid of tennis elbow inflammation and pain.

We can heal the tendons and muscles involved by engaging the inner power of healing that human brain is capable of. After Japanese medical health diagnosis acupuncturist create an individual treatment plan. Then, by applying the treatment protocols acupuncturist stimulates the related nerve ending to inform the brain about the problem and initiate the healing process.

The number of treatments depends on the condition status and how long the problem exists in the body. If it’s acute, usually 3-5 acupuncture treatments may suffice. In a case the condition is chronic 5-10 treatments might be essential.

Understand, it’s seemed like you have just elbow problem, yet when muscles inflammation occurs in the body, your spleen and pancreatic gland function is disturbed, when tendonitis occurs your liver function is in trouble. All the health problems found during Japanese medical palpation of the reflex zones on your body are going to be addressed during each acupuncture session. The whole homeostasis of the body must be achieved in order to heal your tennis elbow.

We always recommend our patients to book an appointment for acupuncture treatment immediately after any health disturbance happens. The earlier acupuncturist starts the healing process, the quicker will be recovery, and the number of treatments will be significantly decreased. Oftentimes our patients need only one treatment to be back on track of life towards their health and wellness.

Clinical Relevance

Acupuncture helps you to get rid of golfer’s elbow. By balancing the organs related to development tennis elbow inflammation, acupuncturist is able to preserve your health and happiness. The main organs that are involved in initiating the tennis elbow inflammation are spleen and liver. How to keep spleen and pancreatic gland healthy you can learn by reading pages 95-107 and how to protect health of your liver you can read on pages 83-94 in my book, Your MindBody Alliance & The Truth About Acupuncture.

Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
