Ihave had dartitis now for about 10 years.some times worse than others.The first year I came out of it twice.Now I got it everytime I throw a dart.Drinking makes it twice as bad.I have no problem without a dart in my hand and can throw left handed with no problems.I used to be very competetive.I can throw a 180 then throw an eleven.I love the game but have no confidence.I have tried everything.Thank you for listening.I fully believe it's a mind to arm thing.What do you think?

I have found the information from some of these responses to Dartitis useful. This website in general is also one of the best I have found for darts information and I always recommend it as a great resource for darts information and helpful advice. Keep up the good work.

i have been suffering from dartitis for a while now started when I was a late teenager and I was falling forward when throwing darts, few years later I am now struggling pulling my arm all the way back to throw the darts. this is causing me to snatch and my accuracy is all over the place. the only thing that is helping me when playing for my team is drinking . if I throw with my left hand my action is perfect but I am right handed so I have no accuracy throwing with my other hand. Is there a way I can cure this problem it is driving me insane I used to be a good super league standard and now I get so frustrated playing the game I love. Time and time again I have thought of packing it in altogether but then I think of how good I used to be able to play,

Hi, have suffered from dartitis for around 6 months, have vowed to play through it and not give up. I cannot release the first dart without a bout of shaking and when it goes it can go anywhere, the next two are slightly better. It can be embarrasing and depressing at times. I desperately want to be at my best again. Can anyone help?

I have played darts for about 6 years super league,local leagues won a few tournaments locally.I have not played competitively for about 2 years because I cannot release some times. I used to play very quickly now its so slow its painful and my throw is a shadow of what it once was If I try throwing without the dart in my hand I can mirror my old throw perfectly but put a dart in and its shocking I have started to try and sort this but cannot any advice help would be very much appreciated.

I had dartitis for many many years, tried everything possible, but in the end I went to a well know and respected sports psycologist who said he had worked with a dart player before but said dartitis was no different to shootings "trigger freeze" golfings "yips", etc etc, i took on board what he had to say - which worked, gotta say its like trying to give up smoking - its always in your mind- hovering in the background for a long time but finally at least the shackles were lifted, if anyone wants to get in touch with me re this "curse" - contact me please.
