So You Thought You'd Try A Low Impact Sport
By Tom Herrin
A lot of people are wanting to become more active. We do a lot of sitting, and really need the exercise. And we like to be entertained because we’ve picked up some lazy habits. However, we are getting a little too old to get out there and do a lot of running or risking contact. Golf sounds good, but you may quickly find this is another sport that comes with some discomfort. Now would be a good time to consider adding chiropractic to your program of activities as well.
To Me, Low Impact Means Less Physical
Golf is just like every other repetitive activity. There is always risk with excessive use. And there is no reason to avoid golf. It’s just that every activity comes with some wear and tear. Chiropractic can add quality to a lifestyle that you are already working to improve. As we get older, we recover more slowly than we did when we were in our teens. This is just natural progression. As we age, we owe it to ourselves to find more ways to protect and improve our bodies in order to achieve maximum performance and function. Chiropractic is a natural progression in that sequence of events.
Am I Looking At Knee Problems?
A common problem injury from playing golf is a hip injury. The planting and turning is not what we are used to and can quickly cause irritation in the hip area. Another injury might be neck and shoulder. Either way, The Joint Chiropractic has a program that can keep you active while helping you to strengthen those muscles that are needed to support your new activity. This is because at The Joint Chiropractic, they will focus on your whole body. They can help you with exercises that provide the support you need. Lifestyle change may be what you are really looking for.
