Will Chiropractic Care Take Your Golf Game to the Next Level?

by | Oct 20, 2022

Are you an avid golfer, but suffering from some aches and pains? You aren’t alone. Golfers often feel that their golf game suffers when they suffer with back pain. In fact, it is estimated that of the 30 million golfers in the U.S., up to 80% have experienced some level of back pain. We can’t promise to add yards to your drive or help your short game. What we CAN promise is a course of chiropractic treatment that will get to the root of the problem. It’ll also help relieve your neck or lower back pain so that you feel better, stronger and looser out on the course.


Why is your back pain worse when you golf?


Swinging your clubs puts your body in a bit of an awkward position, opening it up for the opportunity for injury. An extreme amount of compressive force – up to 10 times a person’s body weight – is exerted on the spine during a golf swing. Every joint involved in the swing is taken through its maximum range. If the body is not properly prepared to handle these forces, pain and possible injury will eventually result.  If your core is not as strong as it could be, this could also be a spot of weakness that will be impacted. If a dose of Ibuprofen won’t cut it, chiropractic care is the best med-free treatment you can get.


What are the benefits of chiropractic care for your golf game?


Routine chiropractic adjustments get your body in better shape.


Golf, or any activity for that matter, is more enjoyable and often gets better outcomes and scores when your body is in good condition. Consistent and routine adjustments help reduce your chance of injury and keep the body functioning at maximum capacity. If your neck and spine are aligned correctly, awkward bodily positions like swinging a golf club will impact you less. You will rely less on medications to gain relief and comfort. Pain management through manipulations and adjustments are often preferred by most of our patients.


Injuries heal faster.


Golf injuries that have already occurred can heal quicker with chiropractic care as well. Back or neck injuries can be treated by an experienced chiropractor who will adjust your spine. We’ll also work on issues with your joints and surrounding tissue that cause pain or slow the healing process. We will consider and evaluate your whole body and work to create a treatment plan that will work with your lifestyle and your goals. 


You’ll enjoy increased mobility, strength and flexibility.


Mobility is important in all sports, even golf. We can help the external rotation of your shoulder! Stiff joints and a weak back or core can hinder your golf game as well as your overall quality of life. Routine chiropractic adjustments keep the body loose and strong, preventing injuries. 


Are you ready to take your golf game to the next level with chiropractic care?


We can all agree that swinging a golf club requires a LOT of coordination between several body parts. Routine chiropractic adjustments help to alleviate back pain, prevent future injuries, and improve your overall golf game. Neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip and back pain are common complaints from our golf fanatics. However, our whole body approach to finding the root of the pain allows for a more successful and enjoyable time out on the course.


Improving your golf game is not always about having the best clubs or looking your best out there. According to handicap averages, data shows that the biggest barrier to an improved performance on a golf course is actually the physical fitness and conditioning of the player. We can help with that!
