Voice For Health – A Matter Of Course

Dr. FreedmanIf you plan to golf on vacation, remember that swinging a golf club exerts a lot of strain on muscles and tendons. In fact, a golf swing places a higher compressive load on the lower back (eight times body weight) than running (three times) or even rowing (seven times). That is why a single swing can produce a herniated disc or even a compression fracture of one of the vertebral bodies. Although extremely painful, these injuries are rare. Muscle strains, however, are quite common due to the twisting that is required for a good swing. While the “modern” swing, with its inverted-C follow through, may make for longer drives than the “classic” swing, it also produces more torque and more injuries.

When sports injuries occur, chiropractors can help with things like strains and sprains, tendinitis, and stress fractures. Studies show that chiropractic treatment for low back pain is one of the most effective and cost-efficient approaches to restore mobility, reduce pain, and help people return to normal activities. To schedule an appointment, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617- 472-4229. We are located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Chiropractic treatment may improve your golf swing by readying your body for the forces that a swing generates.
