More and more people of all ages, genders and skills are joining the game, finding the golf course the perfect place to network, negotiate business deals or simply hang out with pals and have some fun.
It becomes even more fun, of course, if you don’t stink at it. That’s where regular chiropractic care comes in.
How Chiropractic Helps Golfers
Back pain relief: Chronic low back pain comes with the game for many golfers. If you haven’t heard, back pain just so happens to respond exceptionally well to chiropractic adjustments, which also increase your mobility and range of motion.
Dignified drives: The overall goal of chiropractic care is to help improve your posture and flexibility, two major components of longer and more powerful drives.
Enhanced joint movement: Swinging a golf club requires collaboration of many joints, from your feet up to your hands with your ankles, knees, hips, spine, elbows and wrists in between. Keeping joints healthy means paying acute attention to flexibility, as lack of it contributes to many repetitive motion injuries. Chiropractic care enhances flexibility while aiming to address, correct and prevent joint injuries.
Magnificent mobility: Combine chiropractic care with stretching and corrective exercises, and you have a cost-effective, all-natural way to improve mobility. This translates to a consistent game for the four-plus hours it takes to play 18 holes.
Even pro golfers swear by regular chiropractic care, with nearly 75 percent of them receiving it while on tour every year. Golf pro and author Jeffry Blanchard goes one better, noting that “The chiropractor is the perfect choice to evaluate, educate, treat, condition and train those who choose to play golf.”
