Golf and Chiropractic Care

golf-and-chiropractic-care golf-and-chiropractic-care

Chiropractic care has been described by professional golfers, like Tiger Woods, as essential to their performance. A research trial conducted in Brazil studied the effects of regular chiropractic adjustments on the distance that a golfer can hit a ball. They found that the golfers who received regular care improved their swing distance by 8m, while the golfers who did not receive adjustments only improved by half a meter. If you love golf, consider chiropractic for: 

Ease of Movement 
Misalignment in the spine can limit your range of motion. Chiropractic care promotes the correct alignment of the body, helping improve the ease of movement during a swing. 

Preventing Injuries
The motion of the golf swing, alongside many hours spent walking and standing, can lead to back pain. Proper alignment of the spine helps to prevent pain and lessen your risk of injury. 

Strength
By allowing your spine and nervous system to function at its optimum potential, chiropractic care may increase the strength of muscle contraction, leading to a stronger swing. 

Golf is a sport that is centred around form and precision. When playing golf, a mere few millimetres can drastically impact your game. Consider chiropractic care to help you make the most of your golf season.
