Chiropractic understands the unique biomechanical demands of golf
Many people write off the sport of golf as a fitness nonentity. In reality, it is a much more involved sport than it seems, as it provides a completely unique mix of movements that presents both benefits and challenges for your spine. From a physical perspective, golf is a sport of twists and turns, bends and bobs, all of which provide gentle conditioning for the moving parts of the body. Depending on the type of player you are, it is also a sport in which you carry a heavy bag on and off for long distances. It is no wonder there is a high incidence of back pain in the golf community- read on to find out about the challenges facing golfers and how we help at Bay Area Spine Care Office.
Your spine is more important than your putter
Golf-related back pain stems from the combination of constant muscle use, torsion during the swing, and spinal pressure that accumulates as you make your way around the course. As golfers, we are always looking to fine-tune the mechanics of our swing to add an extra yard while hopefully keeping it in the fairway. Chiropractic takes this same approach to your body: by aligning the spine, removing nerve impingement and mitigating the damage of your swing, we help you feel better on the course. Along the way, we hope to help you play better too. Chiropractic:
- Contributes to a more rhythmic swing
- Sharpens accuracy and improves distance
- Increases flexibility and overall range of motion
- Strengthen’s your body’s natural resilience to injury
In short, chiropractic ensures that your body is not working against you and your golf game.
