The Masters is currently going on and is one of sports greatest events. Watching the golfers practice their craft is always entertaining. The drives, the putts, the risks!
While golf is a relatively safe game, there are some very strong forces in play. The amount of torque in the low back is significant especially on drives. Knee problems can also develop when “gripping it and ripping it”- just ask Tiger! Strength AND flexibility in the spine is the best way to prevent injury in the back. Chiropractic treatment will help both the strength and flexibility of your spine and allow you to hit the ball further (sorry; can’t do anything about your slice!). For injury treatment and prevention, please call Marcum Chiropractic at 503-235-7130 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Hartwig.
