Use Chiropractic Care To Prevent Injuries On The Golf Course
Jun 18, 2018

Golf is an enjoyed pastime for many adults and teenagers throughout the greater Atlanta region for many reasons. Not only does it allow you to exercise outdoors, but it also serves as an excellent way to socialize with friends, family, and colleagues.

Although golfing is largely considered to be a low-impact sport, it actually creates a tremendous amount of pressure and strain on the body. Anyone who golfs for fun or for competition should take proactive measures to avoid common strains, tears, and injuries.

Chiropractic Treatment For Golf Players

One particular resource that helps reduce joint pressure and prevents back pain is chiropractic treatment. Developing and incorporating a comprehensive spinal care plan can help golf enthusiasts enjoy their favorite activity without exposing themselves to potential injuries.

Develop Your Golf Swing

For golf players who are interested in developing their game, practicing your swing is critical. Still, the repetitive motions associated with swinging a golf club creates significant pressure on your spine. This pressure can lead to inflammation, injuries, and misalignments.

Not only does pressure build up in the spine, it also affects a variety of other areas in the body such as your joints, ligaments, and muscles. This is why so many active players develop a condition known as “golfer’s elbow” which refers to inflammation within the elbow joint. Wrist conditions are also common among golf players.

Chiropractic Treatment For Common Golf Injuries

To prevent common golf injuries and pain, work with an experienced chiropractor to support and maintain a healthy spine. Meeting with a chiropractor at least once a week is an excellent way to prevent pressure from building to the point where your system becomes overwhelmed and vulnerable to injury.

Receiving an adjustment on a regular basis is also a great way to prevent misalignments and provide an energy boost that helps elevate your overall performance. Instead of suffering from sciatic nerve pain, shoulder pain, or elbow pain this summer, contact our Atlanta chiropractors for complete injury prevention and pain relief.
