Injury prevention in Golf

Chiropractic Care Boosts Golfers’ Performance.
Playing golf is a great form of exercise and is a natural stress reliever. However, golf is tough on the spine and leads to back disorders. Regular chiropractic care is not only proven to keep your spine aligned but research shows it can boost your golf performance. Chiropractic care helps any athlete to restore function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Muscles, joints and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply and literally “take you out of the game”.

Aim for Perfect Posture.
Proper posture on and off the course is essential to your health and for avoiding injuries. If your spine is out of alignment, then your swing will be out of alignment. Professional and amateur golfers seek regular chiropractic adjustments to avoid injuries and to maintain that perfect golf swing they have worked so hard to achieve. Optimal posture improves your ability to strike the ball more consistently by increasing the range of motion of your stroke, increasing your balance and improving your stability.

Forgo the Cart but Watch out for the Weight of Your Golf Bag.
In addition to that golf swing tweaking your back over and over, the weight of your golf bag, not to mention a mix of 14 irons and woods, golf balls and assorted accessories is enough to cause serious injury. Invest in a hand-pull bag cart instead of carrying your bag to each hole on the course. At the very least, carry it on a different shoulder from time to time.
