They have to in order to adjust subluxations and keep you healthy, and because of this knowledge they can also help you in few lesser known ways – one of which may be your gold game! Here is what you need to know about how chiropractic care can benefit you on the green and keep you out of the rough!

Golf Mechanics

Avid golfers do a lot of twisting in order to generate torque, which helps them to hit the ball harder. The problem is that this twisting, combined with being in a bent posture repeatedly can be a recipe for lower back problems. There are some things you can do, however, in order to keep your game pain free!

A Good Golf Strategy

Many people, not just golfers, continue with what they’re doing until they get hurt and then ask for help. The back pain experienced by many golfers is merely a warning sign of an underlying problem. It may be an overuse injury or a repetitive injury, but if it’s not treated it will only continue to get worse. Your chiropractor can help by finding the underlying cause of your pain and help you to get it straightened out at its source.

A Few Good Tips

So, seeing a chiropractor is a must, but you can help your chiropractor keep you pain free by remember a few rules when it comes to your golf game. First, make sure you buy equipment that fits you. If you have the wrong size clubs don’t try to adapt your swing to fit them – this will only lead to problems on and off the green for you! If you inherited golf clubs from someone else that don’t fit, try to find ones that do!

Stretching is just as important for golf as it is for any other activity. Make sure to stretch out lightly before and after the game. This will help your flexibility, which will in turn help your game and also help you to avoid injury.

If you’re new to golf, invest in lessons. Learning proper technique is critical to not only your score, but your health as well. Also, you will want to either get a caddy or pull your golf bag. Carrying that sucker around for 18 holes can be hard on your back.
