Golf and Chiropractic Care

 

  ” I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.” -Tiger Woods

The best golfers in the world can be found on the PGA tour. Right behind them are their chiropractors, keeping them in line and performing at their best. The PGA currently has a team of 12 chiropractors that provide care at at every one of their 70 annual tournaments.

Even under the best physical conditions, swinging a golf club is not very “back friendly.” The rapid rotation puts tremendous stress on the joints, discs, and muscles of the lower and middle back regions. It’s no surprise that as many as 50% of those who golf regularly report having chronic low back problems at some point in their lives.

The main reason for this epidemic is that a lot of golfers lack the balance, flexibility, and strength crucial to developing an efficient golf swing. The low back pain that they experience comes from a loss of rotation during the back swing or a blockage of hip turn through impact.

Chiropractic works NATURALLY to fix misalignments and fixations of the joints in your hips and spine. When the bones of your lower back are maintained properly the end results are less back pain, a more efficient golf swing, and an all around better golf experience.
