Spring has sprung and many are dusting off the clubs and hitting the links for the first time. For some, this is the most activity they have had in months. This can be a recipe for disaster, especially if you are holding on to a few of those winter lbs!
Statistically, many golfers suffer from lower back pain. Injuries such as golfers elbow, and tendonitis, are often compensation injuries due to a movement issue.
Why? Golf is a sport that requires great skill and technique, but also mobility. The harmonious interaction of joints and muscles that must take place in your body in order to accomplish a successful swing can be a lot for the deconditioned body to take on. This combination of deconditioning and poor mobility will eventually lead to an injury.
Many golfers on the PGA tour routinely undergo chiropractic visits to restore their mobility, and flexibility!
How Can We Help? As Chiropractic Physician's we are experts of the musculoskeletal system, and body biomechanics. Like a car, each component of your body works together to function. When all of the parts (joints and muscles) in your body are not moving the way they are suppose to, you are going to have compensations with adjacent structures. This compensation is what will lead to Injuries such as lower back pain, golfers elbow, tendonitis, and rotator cuff problems. By restoring normal movement to the joints and muscles your body will be able to function at it’s best!
In addition to being a scratch golfer our own Dr. T is trained by Titleist Performance Institute to identify biomechanical faults in your swing and make corrections on the spot supplying additional exercises/stretches to further improve your game!
