Golf Injuries

Golf Injuries

Golf injuries often develop due to poor technique, decreased flexibility, and deficient strength of an individual golfer.

The most common injuries for golfers happen at the elbows, knees, wrists, and lumbar spine. One example of a typical problem area is a flexible young golfer with poor pelvic control, weak core, and hyperextending knees. This can cause low back pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain.

There are other typical problem areas, which correspond to certain strengths and deficiencies. Proper analysis and testing can reveal which muscles need to be strengthened and/or which joints or muscles need to be stretched for more flexibility.

Rehabilitation either prior to injury based on discovered deficiencies or post-injury should be individualized after formal and proper analysis. This will help to alleviate symptoms and prevent future recurrence of injury.
