Golf, Injuries, and Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

If you have ever played a round or two of golf during your life, you know that it can be both a physical and mental challenge. On one hand, you are walking, swinging, and bending for hours on end, and on the other hand, you are concentrating, executing, and tallying up scores. There are so many different health benefits headed your way when you step on the course, but that's not all. There are some risks headed your way too if you aren't being careful. Take a look at why many golfers, and other athletes, see their local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic regularly.

Golf, Injuries, and Chiropractic Care

Sure, staying physically active will improve the health of your heart, aid in weight loss, reduce stress, and improve sleep, but if you aren't careful with your movements, you may end up experiencing pain, soreness, and injuries. And even though golf is often referred to as a low-injury sport, accidents can still happen. Take a look at how they can occur on the course.

  • The position of your body does not squarely face your target
  • You must rotate your shoulders and hips toward the target during your swing
  • Your lower body must coordinate its stability with resistance, weight distribution, and movement
  • Repetitive motion and excess stress is continuously being placed on your spine, hips, shoulders, elbows, and knees

Pain Isn't Par for the Course

Even if you are playing with good form and proper technique, the potential for injury is still something you need to be aware of. Here are some of the most common golf injuries the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic treat.

  • Back, neck, and hip pain
  • Shoulder, knee, and wrist issues
  • Golf and tennis elbow
  • Joint dysfunction
  • Muscle strain
