There has been much research done on the benefit of chiropractic care for improving golfer’s game. The twisted posture, bent over stance and fatigue that occurs during a game of golf is a recipe for lower-back trouble. Famously, Tiger Woods stated that going to his chiropractor is as important to him as practising his swing.
Dr Baines treats a number of golfers of all different levels and whilst many have lower back pain, symptoms can be found in the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and ankles.
Initially many golfers carry on until they can’t play and are forced to seek help. Lower back pain – however mild – is a warning sign and seeking the underlying problem quickly can keep you on the green. By looking for the cause of the symptoms Dr Baines can help reduce the likelihood of future injury.
