Treatment For Golfing Injuries

Is your body feeling below par?

Don’t bury your head in the sand. Come and see one of our team members at Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic.

If you’re a golfer, you’ll know playing the game is not just a walk in the park. Besides the six or seven-kilometre trudge, there’s also the explosive element; the swivel; the swing; the flexibility; and the power.

At the end of a round, your body is acutely aware of the workout you’ve given it. Victory, of course, is a great healer, but even that doesn’t numb the aches and pains forever.

Golfing injuries are more common than you might think. Believe it or not, golf is surprisingly high up on the list of sports that cause the most injuries, and many of the 60 million people around the world who play, carry their niggles with them through the week.

If you find something is hampering your swing, you’re feeling under par, or are temporarily handicapped by a sore back, get in touch with Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic. We see plenty of golf injuries.

Usually, our golfers present with lower back, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hip injuries. The most common causes include overuse, poor swing mechanics, lack of warm-up, and poor posture.
