Health Tips For Golfers

Many avid golfers contort their bodies into oddly twisted postures, generating a great deal of torque. Couple this motion with a bent over stance, repeat 120 times over three or four hours, add the fatigue that comes with several miles of walking, and you have a good workout and a recipe for potential lower back trouble.

Purchase equipment that fits. Do not try to adapt your swing to the wrong clubs: A person six foot tall playing with irons designed for someone five inches shorter is begging for back trouble.

It is a good idea to spend some extra time performing quality stretches before and after your game to increase your trunk flexibility. Players need to improve their flexibility to maintain a more even and consistent swing plane and thus improve the likelihood of more consistent performance and less stress on the spine.
