Chiropractic Sacramento CA Golf

Our Sacramento CA Chiropractic office helps Golfers.

All three of our doctors here at our Sacramento CA Chiropractic office love golf.

Golf is considered a low-risk, and low-impact sport however the amount of injuries that occur among Golfers is shocking.

The majority of golf injuries occur in the lower back which accounts for 15% to 34% of all golf injuries, followed by injuries to the elbow (7%-27%), shoulder (4%-19%), and wrist (10%). Check out this study if you are interested in some statistics.

Chiropractic care can be a major asset for golfers. If you love golf check out this blog (5-minute read) on the top 3 reasons golfers should get chiropractic care.

Top 3 Reasons Why Golfers Should See a Chiropractor

The reasons golfers should see a chiropractor are simple. Chiropractic care treats injuries, prevents injuries, and improves your golfing performance. Although the injury treatment and prevention may seem obvious to those who have had care, you will be shocked by how chiropractic can improve your golf game.

To Treat Existing Injuries And Speed Up Recovery

Golfing injuries can be excruciating. Chiropractic care can help golf injuries of the wrists and lower back by aligning the joints and increasing blood flow through chiropractic adjustments. What most people don’t consider, is that chiropractic care can help the back recover faster from playing golf as well because of the increased mobility and blood flow.

To Prevent Injuries Without Slowing Down Your Game

Almost every lower back injury that is sustained from swinging a gold club occurs because the spine was out of alignment when the golfer swung. If the spine is in alignment and the golfer has a full range of motion it is extremely rare for the back to be injured. By maintaining the spine in alignment golfers reduce their likelihood of injury dramatically.

Improve Your Game (And Health) With Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care can have a serious effect on mobility. We actually wrote a short article on mobility that explains this thoroughly. Having increased mobility in the lower back can allow you to have a proper follow-through on your swing which can make a BIG change in your game.

Chiropractic adjustments can also help boost blood flow. This brings more oxygen to your muscles and mind, which can help you perform your best.
