Golfing and low back pain
Updated: May 16, 2019
I have never played golf and in all honesty am never likely to. It is however a very popular activity amongst young and older people alike. Although it's likely very challenging and a lot of fun, what cannot be denied is that golf is a totally unnatural activity with regard to human movement, especially with it's one sided nature. This one sided sport will inevitably lead to imbalances in the body, even in those who are otherwise strong and healthy. For those who are not in such great shape, golfing can lead to some serious and painful physical problems. Erik Dalton the founder of Myoskeletal Alignment Technique, shows us the potential problems caused by the sport, and what we can do as therapists to prevent and correct dysfunction in this population.
