Improve Your Golf Game with Chiropractic Care

May 01, 20242 min read

Choosing to receive treatment from a chiropractor won’t stop your slice or improve your putting, but it just might end up improving your overall game and lowering your score. It’s no secret that golf can be hard on your lower back. The quick, repetitive twisting motion required to swing a club puts your back at risk every time you play, and if you already have a back injury you’re putting other muscle groups at risk. Keep reading to learn how to improve your golf game with chiropractic care.

HOW CHIROPRACTIC BOOSTS YOUR GAME

Since a chiropractor is specifically trained to treat the entire neuro and musculoskeletal systems they are able to help golfers reduce the amount of stress and strain placed on their bodies. The lower back does undergo a lot of stress with the torque of a standard golf swing, but there are other body parts that can affect your golf game, too. Pain or range of motion issues in your shoulders, elbows, knees, or wrists will definitely affect your swing and lead to inflated scores.

Chiropractic treatment can put your body back into alignment, remove nerve compression, and improve blood flow to vital muscles. When you are free from pain and your mobility isn’t hindered in any way, you can swing freely and focus on your game.

IT ALL BEGINS WITH YOU

Although you can improve your golf game with chiropractic, taking steps to help yourself will improve it even further. Arrive early at the course and do some warm-up stretching and light swings before your game. Whether you hit some balls at the practice range or not, stretching and loosening up is key. You’ll also want to perform some light stretches after your round to keep your muscles loose and lengthened.

It’s easy to get dehydrated out on the golf course, but not drinking enough can set the stage for a strained muscle or similar injury. Make sure you drink plenty of water before, during, and after playing golf, especially if it is hot outside. If you walk the course when you play, avoid carrying your bag and pull it instead. Carrying a heavy golf bag over 18 holes can cause disc problems and irritate nerves.

If you have the option, avoid wearing metal spikes when you play. They have the potential to get stuck in the ground during your swing, causing a serious knee or back injury. And if you find that your swing is causing pain in any area of your body, consider taking lessons to learn a more efficient way to swing your clubs. If you follow these tips you’ll enjoy a pain-free round every time out. Our chiropractic team at Bliss Chiropractic and Acupuncture is here to help.
