Golfers: Beware of These Common Injuries Atlanta, GA
Man Posing After Hitting a Golf Shot

The U.S Open, the British Open, Champion’s Tour.

It’s safe to say golf season is in full swing. And whether you’re an avid player yourself, or you simply enjoy hitting a few rounds on the weekend with friends, you’re not immune to common golf injuries such as golfer’s elbow, pinched nerves, herniated disks and rotator cuff pain.

Conditions such as golfer’s elbow occur when you engage in a forceful gripping activity such as holding a golf club. It causes tendons in the forearm and elbow become inflamed, causing pain and swelling.

Back pain in the form of herniated disks and pinched nerves are also common in golfers, thanks to the repetitive and constant twisting required of a good golf swing. Poor form is a big contributor to this type of injury, but even the most experienced golfers often suffer from some type of back pain or injury.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
