Quick answer: Yes. As with any sport or activity, if you maintain your overall health it will benefit you. Let’s look at what you need to play golf with no hindrances. You need to be able to bend and twist, so you need your spine-especially low back; you need your feet so you can walk a certain distance; you need some level of endurance for this too because the more relaxed and less fatigued you get, the better. And don’t forget about your arms, especially hands and shoulders.
I’ve played a certain amount of golf and I can tell you I’ve probably injured my wrists and back the most. Luckily, having a good chiropractor , I quickly get adjusted and my pain is relieved.
So, not only do you need to feel good, have adequate range of motion and some level of endurance, you also need to take care of injuries that arise.
Another thing to think about is posture. Chiropractic treatments help align your spine and therefore correct posture. Can a low swing shoulder, or a tilted pelvis technically affect your golf swing; you bet! Not only that- correcting poor posture and spinal alignment is vital to preventing future injuries.
Seeing your chiropractor is an easy way to take a stroke or two off your game.
