Golf and Low Back Pain
Spring is here and for many that means golf. One very common golf injury is low back pain (usually due to muscle strains and sprains). People who suffer from chronic and reoccurring lower back pain can be frustrated because the pain hinders their ability to play golf.
We regularly treat golfers both on the professional and amateur level. The range of motion required to swing a golf club puts a great deal of pressure on the lower back. The pressure comes from rotating and extending.
Chiropractic care is a valuable tool to help with golf injuries. Periodic spinal adjustments keep the body functioning at its peak performance and reduce the chances of being injured. Over the course of a few treatments, pain is often drastically diminished and much more manageable.
Golfers who play often as well as those who only play a few times a year know mobility is essential to a good golf game. Stiff joints and a weak back not only mess with the golf game, but can be the very issues that end up causing an injury. A regular chiropractic treatment schedule keeps the body loose and strong and helps prevent injuries.
