Round of Golf with No Low Back Pain, Please
It’s hard to walk around the golf course and not hear someone talking about their low back pain or sciatica. Unfortunately, the great game of golf tends to wreak havoc on the spine and muscular systems. This is one reason why many top pro golfers (Tiger Woods, Tommoy Armour) among other athletes have a chiropractic physician on staff. Although often overlooked, the back is one of the most important components of the game of golf.
The amount of strain placed on the lower back joints, discs and muscles is tremendous while playing golf, but if often made worse by golfers not stretching or warming up before a round. The golf swing itself consists of the bending and twisting of the spine. These two actions can be very destructive, and over time, repetitive rotation of the spine can slowly break down the spinal discs. Symptoms of back pain that radiates to the buttocks, thighs or legs are very serious, as these symptoms often mean the cushions between the spinal bones of the low back have deteriorated or are bulging outwards into the nerves.
The good news for golfers with back pain is that Chiropractic Care can help. And for disc issues specifically, technological advances have lead to a new treatment called Spinal Decompression Therapy.
