Better golf starts with better movement. Some of the main goals with chiropractic care are to improve your posture and flexibility. These two components of care can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life and your hobbies.
When it comes to golf, a sport that has been traditionally seen as a game for older populations, the younger, stronger athletes have dominated the sport. Younger athletes naturally have greater flexibility, which allows for a greater swing- but what can you do if you don’t have enough flexibility, or are getting older and want to keep your flexibility to help your golf game?
Chiropractic Improves Your Game
Chiropractors are experts when it comes to examining your spine, muscles, and body movement. This allows us to figure out exactly where your limitations are, where you have an imbalance, and how we can correct these problems.
If your chiropractor has gone out of their way to get extra training specific to golf movement and swing analysis, they will have a TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) certification as well. This certification give your chiropractor specific tools that they can use to look for movement faults AND any stability issues you might have, that might be affecting your game and your ability to get a better golf swing.
In addition, many golfers suffer from low back pain. Back pain also happens to be the top reason someone would seek chiropractic care, since we have exceptional skills in dealing with it. A combination of chiropractic adjustments, muscle release, stretching, and home care can quickly help with low back pain, to let you get back to your game sooner.
Better Golf Swing
Because chiropractic care also improves your posture and flexibility, you are also in a better position not to hurt yourself, and have a better swing. A better golf swing also means longer and more powerful drives.
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 movement in any of the contributing joints can affect your entire swing, as the body compensates to find the path of least resistance.
If you’re interested in improving your golf game, your body’s flexibility, and your posture, chiropractic care is an excellent way to address your concerns, and help you enjoy the game for years to come.
