A perfect golf swing is a beautiful thing: a study in fluid motion and power. But when something is out of whack, pain or stiffness will ruin that fluid motion. When that happens, you need chiropractic care for golfers.

Golfing is a great form of exercise and a natural stress reliever (especially if you skip the golf cart). However, the golf swing is tough on the spine and leads to back disorders. Regular chiropractic care is proven to keep your spine aligned and research shows it boosts your golf performance.75% of golfers in the PGA praise chiropractic care. Pro-golfer, Tiger Woods, has been an advocate for chiropractic care for years. “Being a Chiropractic patient has really helped me immensely … lifting weights and seeing a Chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.” - Tiger Woods

Studies show that more than 80 percent of the 30 million golfers in the United States experience back pain or injury at some point while actively playing golf. This is because the golf swing is an unnatural movement for the lower back. Four out of every five golfers experience back pain or "golf back" at some point. Swinging a driver or three iron at speeds of up to 100 mph while turning, twisting and pulling exerts traumatic stress to the entire torso not just the lower back.

Amateur as well as professional golfers rely on chiropractic care as part of their best strategies for maintaining health on and off the course. Staying strong and fit achieves the best possible performance. According to The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (www.yes2chiropractic.org), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of chiropractic, Tiger Woods, David Duval, and Padraig Harrington are just a few of the professional golfers who rely upon chiropractors to stay at the top of their game.
