Chiropractic Care and Your Golf Game

Chiropractor KennesawIt used to be called the “gentleman’s game,” but more and more women are joining in and in the past it was often viewed as a game only for the wealthy.

Many schools and colleges have teams and it’s considered the perfect game for networking or negotiating important business deals. For these reasons, plus the opportunity to play a social yet athletic game in the great outdoors, more and more players are getting into the game.

Where does chiropractic fit in with your golf game on one of the many courses in and around the Kennesaw area? Can chiropractic care help you to improve your golf game?

  • Many golfers suffer from chronic low back pain. Back pain responds exceptionally well to chiropractic adjustments, increasing mobility and range of motion.
  • Chiropractic care can help to improve posture and flexibility, two components of longer and more powerful drives.
  • We become less flexible with age and immobility – working at a desk job or sitting in a car driving everyday contributes to that as well. Swinging a golf club requires collaboration on the part of many joints from the feet up to the hands, including ankles, knees, hips, spine, elbows and wrists. Lack of flexibility contributes to many repetitive motion injuries in the joints. Chiropractic care attempts to address, correct and prevent joint injuries.
  • When combined with stretching and corrective exercises, chiropractic care is a cost effective, all-natural way to improve mobility… which translates to consistency during the four – five hours it takes to play 18 holes.

Fancy new high-tech clubs, shoes with the right spikes and the latest golf attire do nothing to improve your game. However, increased flexibility and mobility can certainly improve your golf score. Just ask the pros, some numbers suggest that nearly 75% of them receive regular chiropractic care while on tour each year. Jeffry H. Blanchard, golf professional and author of The Geometry of Golf stated, “The chiropractor is the perfect choice to evaluate, educate, treat, condition and train those who choose to play golf.”
