May is National Golf Month and a fun time to be on the green.
Many golfers miss out because of common injuries to this sport. Heal golf injuries faster and safer with chiropractics to get you back in the game.
It is no secret that golf is hardest on your back. Even perfect form when you swing will wear on your spinal alignment over time. Fortunately, chiropractors are all about the back. Even if your back is not necessarily injured, chiropractors can alleviate back pain and soreness from a long day on the green. Spinal alignment will take pressure off the areas of your back you rely on for your golf swing. Frequent chiropractic adjustments can act as preventative care, and we aren’t strangers to helping patients with more serious back pain like nerve damage, disc ruptures, and more.
When golfers have a fast wind up, it can often result in shoulder pain. Sometimes this is just soreness, but it can also manifest in more serious issues, such as rotator cuff tendonitis, muscle tears, or A-C joint arthritis. As with any musculoskeletal problem, chiropractors can help. If you are feeling shoulder pain or even elbow pain, trust a chiropractor to help you feel better again!
Improper posture when swinging the club may cause knee pain – sometimes progressing to the point of surgery. Before you go under the knife, try chiropractic care. A chiropractor looks at the whole body functioning together and takes a full medical history in order to diagnose accurately. This is important when you understand that your knee joints are connected to your leg bones, pelvis, and influenced by your back and spine. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate knee pain and bring back a full range of motion.
If you are suffering from a golf injury that is preventing you from getting on the green, May is the month to visit a chiropractor and fix that! You can enjoy golf as a sport again with the help of chiropractic care from 360 Chiropractic.
