With summer quickly approaching, there is plenty of reason to find outdoor activities to stay healthy. One sure way to get exercise while enjoying time with friends is to take on the golf course for 18 holes. Not only can this prove to be relaxing and relieve some stress, it can also prove to be painful. Chiropractors advise that spending hours on end at the golf course can take its toll on the back. These professionals have offered several tips to help prevent the inevitable back pain from which many suffer, including:
