Simple tips to staying healthy and improving your game

Back pain and Golfer’s elbow are the most common cause of injury and pain that will keep you off the golf course and from the game you love.
Golfer’s Elbow: Pain experienced on the inside of the upper forearm is the most common symptom here, and can actually appear anywhere from the elbow to the wrist. Other symptoms include weakness, stiffness, general restriction of movement and even tingling and numbness. Overuse, poor technique, and ill-fitting equipment will contribute to this condition.
Back pain: Lower back pain is by far the most common ailment suffered by golfers of all ages. Statistically speaking, the lack of mobility in the ankles, hips, thoracic spine and shoulders of many golfers often force the lower back to carry excessive loads and is the primary cause for most lower back injuries. What does this tell you? Never skip your stretches!

Stretching for Golfers

Why stretch? Stretching is one of the most under-utilized techniques for improving athletic performance and getting rid of those annoying sports injuries. It relaxes your mind, tunes up your body, and really should be a part of your daily life. You will find that regular stretching will reduce muscle tension, increase your range of motion, prevent injuries, prepare you for activity, develop body awareness, promotes circulation and just feels good! Golf swing flexibility is critical to making a full turn with minimal effort, and keeping the stress on your lower back to a minimum. Simple stretches performed regularly will keep you on the golf course all year-round.
