Davenport Chiropractor Offers Preventing Golf Injuries Class

Chiropractor in Davenport Golf Injuries

By: Clay Kuethe D.C. (Dr. Clay)

I love to golf. There I said it. A lot of my patients love to golf as well. So in honor of them, and the Master’s Tournament this past weekend (what a finish), I am going to put on a “Preventing Golf Injuries Class” on Thursday, April 25th at 6:00 PM. This is an updated date. Please ignore the date on the picture. We will go through the most common injuries, what causes them, and some simple things you can do to prevent them from happening. The class is free, so make sure to tell your friends and call ahead to reserve your spot.

I will be doing a swing analysis after the class to look for some areas that may lead to injury. The cost for this is $5.00. I do swing analyses in the office all year round, so you just have to make an appointment if you are interested. I will run through some of the injuries here, but you will have to attend the class to learn the preventative actions.

Lower back would have to be the most common golf injury that I see. Your lower back is not meant to rotate that much. Rotation comes from the hips. Injuries tend to happen when you are trying to get some extra power and swing too hard.

The wrist is also a common area of injury. If you hook or slice the ball, you may be over or under rotating your wrist. This leaves your wrist in a vulnerable position and can lead to injury.

Knees are another common area of injury, think of Tiger Woods. People tend to injure the inside of the knee that is back in their stance. Swinging too hard is a common cause of injury.

Elbows get injured so often that they named a condition after it. Golfer’s elbow affects the inside portion of the elbow on the side that you swing. So if you are right-handed, the inside of your right elbow.

Shoulders injuries can also occur but tend to be less common. They usually affect the back side of your lead shoulder. So if you are right-handed, the back of your left shoulder.

Give us a call at the office to reserve your spot. If you need any other form of Chiropractic Care in Davenport, be sure to give us a call. Get Adjusted and Be Well!
