Golfers Elbow, Elbow Tendonitis and Elbow Pain
There are a number of conditions that affect the elbow area. "medial epicondylitis" (golfers elbow), and medial collateral ligament sprain (throwers elbow).
If you suffer from golfers elbow or are seeking to prevent its occurrence
Golfers elbow occurs when there is damage to the muscles, tendons and ligaments around the elbow joint and forearm. Small tears, called micro tears, form in the tendons and muscles which control the movement of the forearm. They cause a restriction of movement, inflammation and pain. These micro tears eventually lead to the formation of scar tissue and calcium deposits. If untreated, this scar tissue and calcium deposits can put so much pressure on the muscles and nerves that they can cut off the blood flow and pinch the nerves responsible for controlling the muscles in the forearm
my shoulder muscle had a sprain as well, as it has been quite over work - when comes to the strainous detailing work
to all my friends & followers
Kindly do yrself a favour by warming up , do some stretching & warm down exercise as well
detailing is not an easy task, rotary is heavy, more over most of the time we had to hold by one hand & buff off with the other
I ended up had a golf elbow & shoulder muscle sprain
and this had make me cool down & not to be haste over my passion
last week i did an intense detailing class ........to be continue
Preventing Golfers Elbow
There are a number of preventative techniques which will help to prevent golfers elbow, including bracing and strapping, modifying equipment, taking extended rests and even learning new routines for repetitive activities. However, there are three preventative measures that I feel are far more important, and effective, than any of these.
What is shoulder tendonitis?
Shoulder tendonitis is the inflammation, irritation and swelling of the tendons in the rotator cuff and bicep. Shoulder tendonitis is usually caused by the pinching of the nerve in the shoulder or from repetitive strain (RS) on the shoulder joint.
This particular type of tendonitis is common amongst sports and activities that require the hand to be moved above the head. These activities include weight llifting and bodybuilding, swimming, rock climbing, swimming and baseball.
Shoulder tendonitis often starts as just a slight pain in the shoulder or upper bicep but can develop into a pain that will encompass the entire shoulder/upper arm area. It's a condition that can be easily treated but in serious cases may become permanent.
Shoulder tendonitis symptoms
Early signs of shoulder tendonitis include a slight pain in the shoulder/upper bicep area when you move your arm up and down. This pain may only occur when the shoulder is under pressure but may still occur at anytime of the day or night.
As the tendonits develops the pain will get more severe and spread from the area where the shoulder meets the arm to all over the rotator cuff. The shoulder will often feel tender and in more severe cases some swelling may be experienced. It's always best to consult your GP to correctly diagnose shoulder tendonitis.
A few ways you can help prevent shoulder tendonitis
There are a few ways you can help prevent shoulder tendonitis occuring. First, you need to warm up and stretch the shoulder area before any sport or activity that is going to place strain on your shoulder tendons. Warm ups should be about 5-10 minutes in length. Second, you can be proactive by strengthening the tendons and shoulder muscles before tendonitis develops. This can be done with lingt shoulder exercises performed every few days.
