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

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.
