Is Back Pain Affecting Your Golf Game?
Pain can be Caused by Muscular Imbalances
Muscular imbalances can happen from muscle weakness and poor movement patterns. This might impact how far or consistent your swing is, and even increase your risk of injury.
Functional training can help address these imbalances to help you move better, and perform better.
Golf-related pain is not limited to the lower back. Middle back (thoracic) pain from golf and upper back pain from golf may also occur without warning, even at the golf course.
Weaker core and pelvic muscles that are the source of low back pain can be identified by accompanying symptoms as well.
Golf is a favourite sport and pastime among many. However, the torque and force applied across the lower back pain create a significant risk of developing or worsening lower back pain.
