Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) - TRCC Total Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Centre

Please wait...

Golfer’s elbow is an irritation of the forearm flexor tendons that attach to the inside of the elbow. This is the tendon of the muscles that are responsible for bending the wrist forward. The term Golfer’s elbow is used because this condition commonly affects golfers. It generally occurs in the trailing arm of the golf swing. With golfer’s, the incidence increases with age and the number of rounds played, with more than two to three rounds per week as a threshold for increased incidence. This condition is most frequently associated with overuse and excessive grip tension. Proper grip tension optimizes the function of the forearm muscles, allowing smooth, rapid movement of the forearms and reduced stress on the forearm tendon insertions at the elbow. Golfer’s elbow is a repetitive strain injury with scar tissue formation that can become chronic if left untreated. The pain is aggravated by activities such as golfing, cooking, gardening, typing, throwing activities, swimming and lifting weights. A Functional Rehabilitation program comprised of stretching and strengthening exercises are incorporated into the treatment plan once the scar tissue has been “broken up” by Targeted Soft Tissue Therapy to reduce the possibility of re-injury. Acupuncture may also be used to treat both the pain and dysfunction of this condition

Here's an example of what just one session of Fascial Remodeling can do! This before & after are an hour apart.

RMT Asha started working with this client to prep her for breast reduction surgery. They did 2 prep sessions prior to the reduction, and this treatment was their first one since the surgery 3 weeks ago.

The client reported feeling more breast congestion on her left side post op, but as you can see her entire torso was congested (1). Her whole right side was pulled up (3) and rotated (2), and most of her weight was on her left leg (4). After the treatment, the torso girth reduced, her rotation relaxed (see the belly button position), and her weight was evenly distributed on both legs.

Breast work was modified according to the client's current activity level, surgeon's recommendation, and scar quality.
