Chiropractic Care May Help Improve Your Golfing Experience

Chiropractic Care May Help Improve Your Golfing Experience

“Is pain is keeping you from turning your bogeys into birdies, then chiropractic care may be the answer to enjoying a pain free golf game?”

Anyone who plays golf knows it can be a very rewarding yet challenging at the same time. Many golfers do not realize the importance of bio-mechanics. Improper bodily function and bio-mechanics can often lead to a golf related injury. All golfers will agree playing in pain is no fun at all.

Chiropractic care may help you play a better round of golf because it allows for better body mechanics. To give yourself the best opportunities to score relies on having proper alignment. You want to make sure that your knees, hips and shoulders are all in line and parallel to your feet. Having a properly aligned spine improves posture. Which will help you hit the ball straighter.

Another important factor to enjoy an optimal golf game is having full range of motion. If you do not have full range of motion you will not be able to swing your club sufficiently. Having an "improper" or insufficient swing can put too much stress on your back which often causes pain. Dr. Ressler (chiropractor in Oviedo, FL) can remove issues in your back which will allow you to have full range of motion and in turn may help you swing better. A common complaint among many golfers is that they experience chronic elbow and hip pain. This is usually the result of using an incorrect form when swinging the club.  Dr. Ressler is able to adjust the shoulder, elbows and wrists using a special tool called an "Activator" that corrects loss of motion. Dr. Ressler will remove your hip pain using adjustments and muscle release techniques allowing you to rotate and swing with optimal range of motion.

Golf is more strenuous than people think and it is important to make sure one's body is properly conditioned before you hit the course. Regular exercise and stretching is a great way to ensure that your body is in the right condition to enjoy all eighteen holes of golf. One thing to keep in mind is you need to have a strong core. A strong core or having strong stomach muscles help support your spine/back. Having your spine supported by strong and flexible muscles may help prevent disc injuries when playing golf. You also want to make sure that you exercise and stretch your hips. This increases flexibility and may help to reduce low back pain. Dr. Ressler can give you recommendations on specific stretches to help reduce pain and prevent further injury.

If you are experiencing pain when playing golf, whether you are on or off the course it is important to seek chiropractic care. Dr. Ressler (chiropractor in Oviedo, FL)  has many years of experience and can diagnose a golf related injury. It is important to alleviate pain and prevent further damage from a golf related injury.
