Golfing, Wrist Injuries and Physiotherapy
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. Excessive dorsiflexion and ulnar deviation of the right wrist may cause
a tear of the triangular fibrocartilage complex. It may be successfully treated
nonoperatively, but may require restriction from golf for an extended period of
The triangular fibrocartilage complex lies
between the ulna and the carpus. It is the major stabilizer of the distal
radioulnar joint. The triangular
fibrocartilage complex is a common site of ulnar wrist pain. Compressive loads
on the wrist, especially when accompanied by ulnar deviation during a golf
swing, can cause a tear in the central portion of the cartilage.
Tenderness and swelling over
the dorsal ulnar aspect of the wrist.
Pain on resisted wrist
dorsiflexion and ulnar deviation
A clicking sensation on wrist
Reduced grip strength
Pain attempting to life your
body weight off a chair using the affected wrist.
can we help?
We will custome make a splint to hold lock your
elbow into 90 degrees and lock your forearm into supination for approximately
6-12 weeks in order to allow for healing of the cartilage.
The use of electrotherapeutic modalities such as
ultrasound are often advocated and commonly used in practice for this
condition. Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment method that uses
high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to speed healing in the injured joint
or muscle tissue.
Strengthening: Following splinting, we will design a program for you to regain the
active range of movement in your wrist strengthening exercises to bring your
muscles back to full strength.
Give adequate rest to painful,
swollen or inflamed areas.
Squeeze a tennis ball to
strengthen hand, wrists, forearms and shoulder muscles.
Use light grip pressure. Slow
the backswing, cut excess wrist motion, and avoid a steep downswing that could
strike the ground
