SPORTS INJURIES IN MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIOThe RBC Canadian Open is slated to begin with practice rounds on July 24, 2017 at Glen Abbey Golf Club. This means plenty of golfers are currently in practice mode. In addition, there are many other golf championships being held around Ontario this month as well. In addition to professional players, roughly six million people enjoy at least a couple of rounds of golf per year, with many enjoying more than 25 rounds.

Golfer’s elbow, also called medial epicondylitis, can happen to those who play golf, but it can also happen to anyone. The symptoms of golfer’s elbow include pain and tenderness on the inside of your elbow which may or may not radiate down the inner forearm. You’ll likely notice that the pain increases when you move your arm in certain ways. In addition, you may experience stiffness, weakness, numbness, or tingling which can also extend to your wrist, hand, and fingers. Swinging a golf club can be extremely painful when you have golfer’s elbow.
