A golfer elbow injury has got to be one of most dreaded injuries on any golf course.
And it is not too difficult to figure out why. To begin with a golfer elbow injury will usually take a long time to heal properly and quite often recurs shortly after a golfer gets back to course. Golfer elbow injury is very similar to tennis elbow, which tennis players equally dread.
It is sort of injury where a doctor will prescribe total rest well away from course. For many a keen golfer, this may be even more punishment than nagging, and often sharp pain from golfer elbow injury.
The reason why a golfer elbow injury takes so long to heal and in some cases may never really go away, is because it is sort of injury that involves a joint. Usually injuries on joints are troublesome. One of reasons is that it is difficult to rest a joint completely and one ends up using muscles whenever they make any slight movement.
