i guess the only quick cure is to take a rest. i know it is gonna be tough but perhaps seeing a sinseh might help.

i also went through this patch when i first started out. Smile

cheers!

Rest definitely helps. I have both golfer and tennis elbow (right side). I think it's from the impact from the unyielding range mats.

I think rest helps. But I have seen my friends using the colorful tapes. ( phiten/kt tapes) ... I go to this guy at boon kheng. He will crack your bones... But it ease the pain a little.

I bought a Philips infra red heat treatment device.  $59. Recovering well after 1 week. Works for me.  You might want to give it a shot.

Take rest, likely due to impact on the range mat before hitting ball.

Rest and stretch.

normally tennis/golfers elbow does not happen due to one bad swing... it could be due to too much shock for your forearms. once the pain goes away, it would be good for you to strengthen your forearms.

Just to share my experince - I have the same problem with both tennis and golf elbow on my right hand. Tried the following over the last 2 months.

1. Taping - no effect. Temporary relieve.
2. Acupture treatment from Eu Yen San - feel numbness during treatment but pain came back after few days.
3. Electric shock pad treatment - was introduced to this shop in Chinatown claiming it works wonder for his stiff shoulder and tennis elbow. Went there for 2 treatments but did not help for my case.
4. Chinese Sensei - release blood treatment. This was the latest treatment I did a week ago. Was very painful for the initial few days but now seem like the pain is lesser. Still monitoring but personnally think this is the best treatment I received so far.

Just a caveat - I did not really stop playing golf completely during all these treatment. Probably that why my recovery is taking so long Smile

Yes it didn't happened with only a bad swing.....Not a good golfer just started playing again after 6 years. Went to the range couple of times for a month and now have a tennis elbow....

Thank you all very much for the recommendation. After reading all your good commends I think will rest first and see how after another week. Wink

The possible reason for your injury is your swing has stretched tendons that have been dormant for some time. rest for a week then wear a elbow brace which will assist in supporting the elbow while your tendons and joints adjust to your new exercise routine. This injury is quite common when you go from regular flex to stiff or extra stiff shafts as there is less give.

I too suffered the same condition about 6 months ago. It was due to having a very tight grip, wrong hand position. The condition is not easy to get rid of. I did 2 acupuncture treatments, then used an electric massager frequently. I had to rest for 1 month. It also allowed me to unlearn the bad habids, focus on the correct setup.

 Well, if its like what my wife underwent with the sensei for the treatment of her nagging foot pain, it went something like this... The bad blood was a blockage in her foot's vein, so the sensei used a large needle to puncture the vein and squeeze the bad blood or clot out. Damn painful according to her, but highly effective. Pain was forever gone after her puncture wound was healed.

Get the tendon brace. It secures the tendon to disallow excessive stretching whilst letting it heal. Golfers usually get golf elbow unless you push for power using right hand weak grip.

haha - no la. They use acupuncture needle to poke around the area and use a vacum cup to suck out the blood. Sight pain during the poking, and the aftertreatment is like having a bad bruise.

Got this Golf Elbow injury a few years ago......and this is one injury that take me quite a while to have it totally cured. The first thing that remind me is the Pain......I have it on my left arm....the pain is so bad that I can't even lift a cup of coffee. When to see a TCM sensei, he recommended that after a few session on needle and blood release remedy the pain will go away. Ok....after a few session it does few better but the tingling pain is still there. So after about 5 session I stop going back because it don't seem to take away all the pain....I still try to play some golf but is so annoying because the pain affect the game. Finally I decided to totally stop playing for 6 months and let the injury cure by itself and it really work. After 6 long month the pain finally gone and I can enjoy the game better now.

An avid golfer, not a doctor by any means, so apply plenty of salt please.

It is correctly stated by the OP that it was caused by a bad swing. So, logically,

Short term cure - lay off the bad swing.

Long term cure - learn a good swing.

hinge joint  (hnj)
A joint, such as the elbow, in which a convex part of one bone fits into a concave part of another, allowing motion in only one plane.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Hinge+joints

Per the definition above, the elbow can only move in one plane. When I stress it out of plane, or through repeated impact when the elbow is not properly aligned, is when injuries tend to occur.

Pain is a good swing instructor for me. It usually means I am doing something wrong in my swing. It's when the pain is ignored that gets me into trouble.

Used to spend money on massage, expensive Japanese bandage, ointment, magic magnetic golf bracelet, etc, until I realised...

Pain = symptom
Swing = cause

Once I realised that, instead of spending money indefinitely and perpetually on the symptom,  I addressed the cause and put away my phiten ointment, bandage, bracelet, etc for good.

Enjoy the game in good health.

God bless.

Per week, I play at least two rounds 18 holes and another 2 to 3 rounds of evening 9 holes per week.  And they are all walking golf. 

I do not experience any pain or injuries even If I were to hit 2 - 4 buckets of balls at the range.  The most I will get is muscle soreness, which is Very rare now.

The golf swing should not be the cause of any injuries.  If you are getting injured, then you are definitely not swinging right. 

I was fortunate to have known a friend who was a Teaching Pro. I started lessons with him when I decided to pick up the game. That was one of the wisest decisions I have made as I was taught a proper swing which did not cause any discomfort.

I agree with Lee. Get a qualified instructor to teach you a stress free swing that you can rely on until you are 100 years old.
