Is PAIN hurting your golf game???
Are you experiencing pain when you play golf? Is there a chronic injury that has been bothering you and affecting your game?
Most golf injuries are seen from overuse as oppose to an acute incident, where mechanics of the swing and physical limitation play a huge role in the development of injury. Most swing faults are seen due to a physical limitation and are commonly related to core stability, hip mobility and spine mobility. Here are some common injuries that we usually see in golfers:
- Low Back Pain – Most common injury in amateur golfers, usually result from excessive tilting and rotation in spine in swing
- Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
- Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
- Wrist Pain
- Shoulder Impingement
- Hip pain
- Herniated Disc

Physical features and limitations can play a role in limiting the possibilities and performance of the individual golfer (such as mobility, stability and strength) in their golf swing as well as the game. This is important, as body is the most important equipment you have! Being able to play the game to the ability you have without any pain will make the game a lot more fun and enjoyable as well!
