The Link Between Golf and Chiropractic Care

The New Zealand Open is in full swing over in Queenstown (pardon the pun), so it’s a perfect opportunity to tell you about the benefits that chiropractic care can have on golfers of all levels. I have treated many golfers over the years and as well as injury prevention, they have also reported an improvement in their game.

Chiropractic care allows the whole body to perform optimally. Swinging a golf club takes a lot of coordination between several body parts. It is amazing how many muscles are used in a round of golf. Therefore, if one area of your body or one muscle is not able to perform at its optimal level, it can cause other parts of your body to overcompensate, which leads to pain.

One major issue that happens with any athlete, not just golfers, is that they go into the game with misalignments to the spine. When your spine is not in its proper alignment, the rest of your body will suffer. Playing any sport with a poor spine leads to poor performance, poor posture, and more injuries.

Another added benefit of chiropractic care is that you may experience a better golf game, since a proper spine and posture can help you swing better and hit the ball straighter. Tiger Woods considers regular adjustments essential to his game and just as important as practicing his swing.
