Golf can put our spines under some pressure. Playing and practising too much, when your body is not fit enough, can lead to back injuries. Golf is a curious game and many of us approach it for the first time completely untutored. As red-blooded sporting men and women we would like to master the hardest game of all by ourselves. Not for me any lessons from the pro; I did it my way, thanks Frank. The crooners loved golf: Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Sinatra love to swing in the green cathedral. But doing it my way, if it is the wrong way, is a quick way to end up in serious back trouble.
Golf can cause back injuries: a chiropractor may help you to alleviate them. But, before you end up on the slab, here are a few tips to avoid golfing based back injuries in the first place. When you take up the game for the first time get some professional help, don’t do what I did, and countless of others have also done, which is practising the wrong things for hours and hours. The thing about golf, is that you cannot see yourself swing the club, unless you are standing near a mirror. Out on the golf range, mirrors are rare as hen’s teeth; which is actually a design fault when you come to think about it. But, because you cannot see yourself and you don’t really know what you are doing, it pays to have a PGA professional observing you and guiding you.
Golf Can Cause Back Injuries: A Chiropractor May Help
Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on golf lessons than on chiropractic bills for a back injury? Even if it is not a question of spending money in the first place, but rather a reluctance to seek professional tuition, golf is not a one-man game anymore. Think about the best players in the world, and how many coaches, personal trainers, mental trainers, nutritionists and other ‘team golf’ members they have in their retinue. The days of Ben Hogan, Lee Trevino and doing it by yourself, are well and truly gone. Success is a team effort. Most professional tours have their own gyms and physiotherapy clinics on course for the benefit and treatment of competing players.
The Brookvale chiropractor have treated a number of golfers for back injuries and are highly proficient in healing injuries of this nature. So, even if you have left your run for the Champion’s Tour a little late, they can help you, if you require a push or manipulation in the right direction.
