Golf Pain Relief In Chapel Hill
Suffer from Golf Pain? Want to Improve Golf Swing?
Many golfers suffer from back and neck pain. Because of the pain, their game suffers too. Not anymore.
Many golfers have heard that their swing is suffering and most have looked online for quick tips for a better golf swing. According to golftipsmag.com list of 10 Best Swing Tips Ever, eight of the ten tips have to do with the alignment of your spine, your posture, your arm and hand positioning, and your power.
Guess what controls all of those issues. Your spine. Power comes from the body, not the arm. Any good golfer knows that. Weakness in the body can be caused by a spinal nerve or nerves being pinched or blocked and not firing at the proper power. When your spine is aligned the nerves are allowed to flow freely sending all the messages to and from your brain smoothly. What does this mean for you? An awesome golf game.

“Chiropractic and Golf — A Winning Combination”
Mark Crawford said it best, in his article for the American Chiropractic Association: “Many golfers feel the psychological component of golf is their greatest challenge and undervalue the biomechanics and conditioning that are required to play the game well. This is a mistake that eventually leads to poor play or injury. An extreme amount of compressive force – up to 10 times a person’s body weight – is exerted on the spine during the golf swing. Every joint involved in the swing is taken through its maximum range. If the body is not properly prepared to handle these forces, an injury will eventually result.
Another common complaint is back pain, the result of an inefficient golf swing that creates too much stress on the back. According to Troy Van Biezen, DC, a Dallas-based chiropractic physician who works with professional golfers, four out of five golfers experience back pain as a result of repetitive swinging. “Regular chiropractic care helps alleviate back pain and greatly improves an athlete’s game,” says Dr. Van Biezen. “Neck, shoulder, elbow and hip pain are also frequent complaints among golfers of all ages. Chiropractic care is an effective non-pharmacologic solution for golfers who seek to rid themselves of pain and have a successful and enjoyable game.”
