Whether it's tennis, golf or pickleball, these activities keep your muscles active and strong; even if you’re not 25 any more… or a long way from it. But a string of injuries could pull you back from pursuing your passion. And they can be painful enough to make you never want to play again. Here are a few repetitive stress injuries that are common as you age:
Tennis, pickleball and golf elbow injuries can be episodic or recurring among avid players. You might not feel sharp pain initially, but that intensifies over time if left untreated. It might even force you to step back from playing.
A “tennis elbow” is defined as pain and inflammation in the outer tendon, and a “golf elbow” is when the same happens to the inner tendon. However, tennis players can get a golf elbow and vice versa.
Shoulder impingement and rotator cuff tear are common among tennis, racquetball and golfers. These can cause significant discomfort and limit functional mobility if not appropriately managed.
With sports that require good foot and legwork, you never want to risk injuring your knees. But the knees are one part of your body that will, sooner or later, go through some level of repetitive injuries if you are active. As you age, intense wear and tear on the knee(s) can result in conditions that lead to surgery.
What Can You Do to Treat Repetitive Stress Injuries?
Whether you’re in your early 20’s or late 50’s, you don’t have to walk away from sports due to the fear of injury. At TRUST Biologic™, our best-in-class and certified CBD (cannabidiol) and CBG (cannabigerol) pain-relieving gel roller will help alleviate these strains and pain. Extracted from cannabis plants, the gel is blended with other active ingredients including camphor and menthol that effectively cool and relieve pain from stress injuries.
CBG, in particular, works by acting on cannabinoid receptors, i.e., cB1 and cB2 receptors that are present in the central nervous system and immune system, respectively. The activation of these receptors strengthens a neurotransmitter named anandamide, and is responsible for alleviating pain, enhancing well-being and motivation.
