In 2019, over 34 million Americans embraced the joys of golf, with 2.5 million enthusiasts taking their first swing at the sport. The popularity surge is undeniable, yet, despite its low-impact nature, golf can lead to injuries. From 1990 to 2011, over 660,000 sought emergency treatment for golf-related injuries, emphasizing the need for golfers to consider chiropractic care as an integral part of their game.
The Swing: A Culprit in Golf Injuries
Every swing in golf exerts tremendous force on the spine, equivalent to eight times one’s body weight. This cumulative impact can misalign the spine, straining muscles, joints, and ligaments, resulting in painful injuries over time.
Why Golfers Should See a Chiropractor: Beyond Injury Treatment

Keeping Injuries at Bay: Proactive Chiropractic Care
Understanding that the spine impacts various body parts, from the back to the neck, wrist, shoulder, and even elbow, underscores the importance of regular chiropractic care. Techniques such as adjustments, active release methods, and range of motion exercises keep the spine aligned, reducing the risk of tension-induced injuries during swings.
