Chiropractic - An Adjustment In Your Game


Copyright (c) 2006 Tyler Powers

Chiropractic care is standard for many pro golfers. Professional golfer Lori West attributes the reason she s playing today to chiropractic. Nearly two decades ago, she began visiting a chiropractor for pain in her shoulders and neck. According to West, the care has infinitely improved her golf game.

According to Dr. Travis Ruda, chiropractor and golf enthusiast, the golf swing in and of itself isn t conducive to having a healthy back. To have a good swing you create tension in your spine. (this enables you to get good distance). The tension comes from the hips stopping and the shoulders continuing to rotate. Basically, you make a coil. You re uncoiling when you start your downswing. Since that s an awkward movement for your back, many golfers end up with lower back problems.

Here s some chiropractic advice.

  • Before your game, do some basic stretches. Stretch out hamstrings and groin area.
  • Put a club across your shoulders and lean left and right.
  • Get in a position of where you would be in a swing and bend left and right.
  • Grab a club behind your back and raise it up, stretching your shoulder muscles.
  • Grab the club backwards so if you normally swing right-handed, you d grab it like you d be swinging left-handed- and take 10 practice swings that way. You re stretching different muscles and it will help you loosen up considerably.
  • You can do neck stretches if it s tight. Stiff neck muscles inhibit the rest of the body from turning freely.
  • Golfer s elbow is a painful condition in which your arm bone becomes sore and tender. Chiropractors can adjust the over-rotated bone.

    Orthodic stabilizers for your shoes can help improve balance so your swing is better.
  • Anything that helps with flexibility eventually helps with your game. As you get older, your swing naturally shortens since the muscles aren t as supple. Flexibility is very important for older golfers.
  • You have to have good balance if you want to hit the golf ball consistently. A healthy spine is paramount to proper balance and posture. Improve your balance and you ll improve your consistency.
  • During the winter, work on stretching the muscles of the arms, shoulders and back.

Chiropractors care for your overall body structure, not just the back. So if your muscles are feeling out of sync, chiropractic may be the just the adjustment your body and game needs!
