“Chiropractic care aims to help improve posture and flexibility, two components of longer and more powerful drives.”
Just minutes after Jordan Spieth won the 2015 masters he began thanking all the people who had helped make his dream come possible. Jordan began by thanking his family and his caddy he thanked his swing coach and then he thanked his Chiropractor. Jordan knows that under chiropractic care he was able to reach the top of his game. Jordan Spieth is not alone in the world of top professional athletes that have endorsed chiropractic care in helping them reach their top level of performance. Tiger Woods, Emmit Smith, Jerry Rice, John Stockton, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Evander Holyfield just to name a few who have credited chiropractic in part to helping them achieve their levels of greatness.
Golfers more than any other athletes have the most to gain from chiropractic care. For starters for anyone that has tried to golf with pain especially back pain they know it is nearly impossible to be at the top of your game. In a sport so precise the tiniest compensation for pain can change the mechanics of a golf swing dramatically. Many golfers in fact suffer from chronic low back pain due to the rotational forces that are put on the spine during a golf swing.
Pain reduction, however is just the tip of the iceberg on how chiropractic care can improve your golf game. Chiropractic care works to help improve posture and flexibility two essential components to longer and more powerful drives. As we become older our flexibility tends to decrease especially in our spine. To swing a golf club it requires many joints to work together in motion. Restrictions in those joints will not only lead to decreased range of motion and decreased power but restrictions can also be a predictor future injuries as compensation mechanisms take place.
While many golfers will opt for the top new clubs, balls, and shoes to improve their game chiropractic care may be the most cost effective change to your game. Chiropractic care combined with proper stretching and corrective exercises can make drastic changes in your swing to help you lower your handicap. Just ask the pros where up to 75% utilize a regular chiropractic care to be their best.
