Wondering How to Improve Your Golf Game This Spring? Read This!

Many Pearland, Texas, residents that have been playing golf for a long time will experience some form of golf injury, whether major or minor. Unfortunately, even minor injuries can sideline players from their golf game for quite some time. Fortunately, stem cell therapy can help players improve their golf game after an injury. At Dr. Burke Orthopedics, we know that stem cell therapy is a revolutionary treatment for many patients involved in sports, so we’ve listed some golf-related injuries that regenerative medicine can help with:

  • Back Pain

One of the most frequently encountered problems in golf players is lower back pain. This is mostly due to the rotational force exerted on the back while swinging. While flexibility exercises and yoga can help a great deal in preventing the pain, non-medical treatment methods may not help more severe cases.

Stem cell therapy offers a completely natural solution to the back pain that golfers incur. During the treatment, healthy stem cells are injected into the area of pain to aid in the process of healing without any downtime. While an initial consultation is required, typically, patients are an ideal candidate if conservative treatments have failed to improve their condition, or if an orthopedic specialist has recommended stem cell therapy.

  • Knee Pain and Damage

Knee pain and damage is more frequently seen in golfers who have been playing for many years. An excessive amount of strain is exerted on knee as a player begins to swing during a game. This issue may be even more pronounced in players with weak knees.

The correct course of treatment depends on the exact cause of the pain, which will be determined by your orthopedic doctor. However, stem cell therapy has been proven as an effective reliever of joint pain in many studies. Stem cells deposited in the damaged area help with pain and damage in the knees by:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Repairing damaged tissue
  • Regenerating worn out cartilage and tissue

  • Golfer’s Elbow

Medial Epicondylitis, or “Golfer’s Elbow” is a condition caused by overuse of muscles and tendons in the forearm. This, in turn, leads to inflammation and pain in the inner aspect of the elbow, along with a shooting sensation down the forearm. This often happens during the moment of impact, as the golf club meets the ball on the ground.

Stem cell therapy aims to restore the strength of the joint and treat laxity, micro trauma, and inflammation within the joint. Stem cell therapy stimulates cellular proliferation and local repair responses, reduces inflammation, relieves pain and improves function.
