Is Chiropractic A Way To Improve Your Golf Game?

Can chiropractic care make you a better golfer?

With springtime here and golf courses reopening, let us discover the way chiropractic care could be one of the ways to improve your golf game.  Many golfers seem to experience back pain at one point or another.  With our experience over the years and plethora of local golf courses, those that have tried chiropractic care report success in lowering their game scores and ultimately feeling stronger on and of the course.

The Link Between Golf and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care allows the whole body to perform optimally. Swinging a golf club takes a lot of coordination between several body parts. It is amazing how many muscles are used in a round of golf. Therefore, if one area of your body or one muscle is not able to perform at its optimal level, it can cause other parts of your body to overcompensate, which leads to pain.

One major issue that happens with any athlete, not just golfers, is that they often go into the game with subluxations, or misalignments, to the spine. When your spine is not in its proper alignment, the rest of your body will suffer. Playing any sport with a poor spine leads to poor performance, poor posture, and more injuries.  Golfing, especially, requires precise swing angles and velocity to calculate and control where to place the ball.

Increased mobility can be gained with chiropractic visits

Golfers who play often as well as those who only play a few times a year know mobility is essential to a good golf game. Stiff joints and a weak back not only mess with the golf game, but can be the very issues that end up causing an injury.

A chiropractic treatment schedule keeps the body loose and strong, and working in optimum fashion. This prevents injuries and increases the chances of playing the game of your life.

Golfers need to realize the sport can cause serious injuries just like "rougher" sports like football and rugby. It’s a good idea to stretch before playing, stay hydrated, and avoid overexertion.

If you are a golfer, chiropractic care is a valuable tool in staying healthy. Regular adjustments and manipulations keep your body on track and performing with maximum mobility at the top of your game. If you do suffer an injury, a chiropractor can help you manage your pain and decrease the time it takes to heal.
