Tiger Woods, David Duval, and Padraig Harrington are just a few of the professional golfers who rely upon chiropractors.

"One thing I know through experience is that I need to keep seeing my chiropractor, even when I have a few weeks off from golf," says Padraig Harrington, whose major championships include two British Opens and the PGA Championship. "Getting ongoing chiropractic care helps me to stay injury-free. It also helps me to deal with symptoms when they begin, so that they don't turn into bigger injuries down the road."

Chiropractic can greatly improve your golf game and your overall health. When you swing correctly you create spinal tension because this helps the ball go a greater distance. Spinal tension comes from stopping your hips while your shoulders are still moving. You are basically making a coil and then uncoiling when you begin your down swing. Due to the awkwardness of the body movement on your back, many golfers have lower back pain and general muscle problems. The most common injuries are strains and sprains in the lower back and neck, and tendinitis affecting the wrists and forearms due to the repetitive action and overuse that is typical in golf. A golf chiropractor will show you the proper swing technique to avoid injury.

As chiropractors, we directly impact the nervous system with adjustments of the spinal joints. The nervous system is in control of all the body’s functions and movements. Keeping it in top condition by way of chiropractic adjustments should be high on every golfer’s priority list. Chiropractors specialize in eliminating back pain and providing wellness plans to stay pain-free while allowing you to play better and more satisfying golf.
