Golf is an extremely popular game for all ages and genders. With the pleather of quality golf courses in the Bayside region and surrounding suburbs, there is no shortage of places where you can get on for a round of golf. Whether you are an aspiring Cameron Smith or recreational golfer, every golfer can improve their stroke with chiropractic care.
So how does Chiropractic care improve your stroke?
- A large majority of golfers complain of lower back pain, particularly on the non-leading side. This is due to the compression of joints within the lower back mainly on one side as golf is one sided sport as well as being single sided. Chiropractic adjustments help restore healthy joint movement and function, increasing mobility and range of motion.
- Chiropractic care helps improve posture and flexibility, two components of longer and more powerful drives.
- Spinal adjustments also aid in the control and activation of muscles used in the golf swing such as the glutes and hips.
- The dynamic nature of the golf swing incorporates a gross number of joints and muscle groups working in unison from the feet up to the hands, including ankles, knees, hips, spine, elbows and wrists. Lack of flexibility contributes to many repetitive motion injuries in the joints.
A lot of people invest in new clubs, shoes, balls and the latest golf attire, which won’t necessarily improve your game if your body can not perform the swing correctly. Investing the time and money into the one thing that is used in every stroke, your body, is something every golfer should consider.
Regardless of whether your on the 1st tee, fairway, bunker or on the greens, you being comfortable and relaxed physically will do a lot more for improving your stroke and reducing your overall score/handicap.
