I have Dartitis and have had it for many years. I've tried lots of things to overcome it. I know this is a mental thing for me as I have found that if I close my eyes or look away from the board before throwing then my great natural throw comes back, with out any hesitation. I'm now looking for a method of where I can look at the board but not at the place where the dart will go! This works, but not as successful as closing my eyes! Try it!

In my case I believe its me trying too hard to throw the first dart in the right place. If I am not happy how I line up I tend to snatch my arm back and freeze a bit.The second and third darts go much easier. I am sure it is a mental thing.

dont know if this will help anyone but have just had a fascinating conversation with an osteopath who is treating me for a seized lower back and the conversation naturally got onto darts as i have played for quite a few years and it really has bugered me up he seems to think that dartitis is more a muscle problem caused by repetition and over doing the arms and shoulder area kind of makes sense really if things dont work right cause of straining and over use the brain is trying to operate the same but with different restrictions hense you dont let go right my back and shoulders are doing the same thing i aim straight but end up veering violently to the left just a thought if any one wants a different view point

On the subject of dartitis I can help. Played darts for 30 years seen many cases. Studied NLP and learnt how the brain can be tricked into re-focusing on other things during the game and therefore elevating the issue of letting go of the dart. My advice is to see an NLP CONSULTANT who will sort this out.

I've had it for over 10 years now. Don't think there is a sure fire way to get rid of it, i' ve tried a host of different things but the only thing that seems to work for me is to stop worrying about what others are thinking about what i am doing.

Some years ago, our dart league brought in Paul Lim and Bob Sinnaeve for a demo. Once the "competition" aspect was over, a question and answer period followed. I asked Lim if he had ever suffered from Dartitis, and if so - how did he counter it? He admitted he at one time did suffer from it - and the only thing that brought him out of it was to throw in the confines of his own home, with the board illuminated by candle light only. For what it's worth.. Glen Berry
