Healing Golf Injuries
Golf injury is very common. If you've been playing one of the many golf courses that are within shouting distance of Tracy, CA, and are feeling some pain, you should seek chiropractic care. It's well known that movement begins with the spinal column. Your chiropractor at Ringer Chiropractic can help, not only with back injuries, but with those to the rotator cuff, elbows, wrists, and any other muscle or tendon strains.
Golfing puts a lot of strain on the back, with its constant twists and pulls. Some of the most famous golfers in the world have been sidelined with back injuries. A back golf injury may require surgery, but you owe it to yourself to try less invasive, more holistic methods of treatment first. They can often completely solve the problem. The golf swing can put a strain on back muscles, and so also can the hunched-over posture used while putting. Chiropractic adjustments can lessen or remove some of the imbalances and strains caused by these unusual repetitive motions. Not only that, corrective exercises can strengthen particular areas of the back and make future problems less likely.
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Rotator Cuff injuries happen to many golfers. The rotator cuff is actually a group of muscles and tendons that work to stabilize the shoulder. Again, the swing while teeing off or driving can injure the rotator cuff or muscles around it. A combination of targeted chiropractic adjustments and specific area exercises can promote faster healing.
Golf and Tennis Elbow
Both of these injuries can be caused by incorrect swing motion. Tennis elbow affects the outer elbow, while golf elbow affects the inner elbow. Golfers actually commonly suffer both of these types of injuries. Targeted chiropractic adjustments and massage can reduce inflammation. Gentle strengthening exercises also promote rapid healing.
As in tennis, the wrist is used extensively when golfing. It is subject to both overuse and strain injuries. Again, a combination of targeted chiropractic adjustment and gentle corrective exercise can be beneficial.
