How can ART help with my golf game

What is Golfers Elbow?

Nationwide Golf Tour where Dr. Abelson and
Dr. Mah provided ART support to players at the course!

Golfers Elbow (also know as Medial Epicondylitis) responds extremely well to treatments with Active Release Technique. Within four to six treatments, we have a proven success rate of well over 90%.

Surgeries for Golfers Elbow are typically performed for about 10-15% of the severe cases.
I feel that most of these surgeries could have been avoided if ART treatments were used.

What causes it?

Golfers Elbow is caused by inflammation of the tendons at their attachment sites.

Golfer's Elbow usually occurs when rigid, underused tendons are suddenly stressed. This can be caused by direct trauma, overuse, improper technique, equipment error (grip size), or even problems from repetitive motion. Repetitive motion is the most common cause of Golfers Elbow.

Why is it so painful?

With Golfers Elbow, when you experience muscle and tendon pain, the tendon has literally been pulled from the bone. This injury starts with microscopic tears in the muscle tissue that then lead to a series of inflammatory responses including:

  • Tissue inflammation.
  • Scarring and formation of adhesions.
  • Shortening of the tendon.

Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion, and constant pressure or tension. ART eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.

If this problem is not treated correctly your elbow will continue to be re-injured. Worse, your game will suffer! (Yes...we are also keen golfers at our office!)

How can ART resolve Golfers Elbow?

ART is a relatively new, and highly successful approach, for the treatment of injuries to muscles, tendons, fascia, nerves, and surrounding soft tissues. ART has proven to be very effective for the treatment of Golfers Elbow, with a success rate exceeding 90%. Traditional treatments address only one area, but ART restores unimpeded motion and function to all soft tissues associated with Golfers Elbow.

ART provides a means to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of Cumulative Trauma Disorders. Typical symptoms include numbness, tingling, burning, and aching. The goal of ART is to:

  • Restore optimal texture and motion.
  • Restore the function of the soft tissue.
  • Release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels.

This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions in the soft tissues through the application of specific ART protocols.

See the following topics for more information about ART:

Unlike most therapies, ART does not require extended periods of rest before you notice results. Patients see significant improvements to the area of injury after only two or three sessions.

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
