Acupressure points for easing golfer’s elbow (video)

Golfer’s elbow affects many who play the game. Tennis players also suffer from this pain on the outside of the forearm, though they call the condition “tennis elbow.”

The arm is like any other body part that has muscles and tendons that need warming up, stretching, rest and proper care. Many novices and even experts, however, do not spend enough time warming up the joints of their arm (from knuckles to wrist to elbow to shoulder). Some do warm-ups, but play too long or too hard. In such cases, pain can result.

Basically, golfer’s elbow is a condition wherein pain is felt on the inner side of the elbow joint. This is the location where the forearm muscle tendons attach to the elbow joints. Strain causes inflammation, stiffness and pain.

The pain from this inflammation may spread into your forearm and wrist. It is believed that the constant tight gripping of the golf club creates tension in the forearm muscles, which becomes strained when the club is swung with speed and power.

General courses of treatment for golfer’s elbow include rest, alternating heat and ice, and anti-inflammatory medications. In today’s video I would like to introduce you to another method of treatment, based on acupuncture theory, but done with pressure you can apply yourself.

Following the instructions on how to apply pressure to the seven self-acupressure points on the video can help prevent and release golfer’s elbow. Follow along with the video and stay relaxed as you move through this simple set of pressure point releases. Altogether, the entire set may only take 60 to 90 seconds. I recommend doing the series before and after each golfing session.

Good luck!
