Pain Relief for Golf Injuries
It's hard to stay away from the links with so many golf courses to choose from around Inver Grove Heights. What that means is an increased risk of getting a golf injury from the repetitive motion and the desire to perfect your swing. When pain strikes, come see our chiropractor at Cahill Back & Neck Care Center and learn how you can golf free from pain.
Back Pain is the Most Common Golf Injury
The back is key to generating a good golf swing and powering the ball. Your spine becomes a spring that you coil and uncoil as your shoulders are swung around to lift the club, then power it up to launch the ball as far as you possibly can. You'll perform this motion around 85 times during a round of 18 holes on a par 72 golf course if you're an average handicap. It's a lot to expect of your spine and back, even if you're in good condition.
Over time, the loading and unloading of your spine can pull your spinal column out of alignment and cause back pain. You may also experience sciatica or your arms can go numb due to the vertebrae pushing onto major nerves that connect to the spine. Your golf game is going to suffer because you can't move through your motions without something hurting.
A Chiropractor Can Correct Your Spine
It's well-recognized in the golfing industry that chiropractic treatment is one of the best options for treating chronic pain issues caused by golfing. A majority of the physical problems caused by golf are considered musculoskeletal and they respond well to mechanical realignment by a professional chiropractor.
A chiropractor gets to the core of your problem starting with an exam, then by determining what kind of treatment is best for your problem. If you have multiple pain issues, the chiropractor can determine if they're linked and address the cause. Keep in mind that it may take multiple visits to fully resolve the issue. The chiropractor can also provide instructions on how to change your game so you move better and are less likely to experience the same issue in the future.
