What has been called the "gentleman's game" is now enjoyed by men and women of all ages. Many high schools and colleges have teams, and the sport is considered an excellent game for networking and negotiating big business deals.
The game itself is big business, from building and maintenance of the courses, and its only growing as more players are getting into the game. So, what's the name of the game? Golf!
Can Chiropractic Really Improve Your Game?
- Many golfers have reported suffering from chronic low back pain. Chiropractic is proven to greatly help back pain, as it responds exceptionally well to chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments increase mobility and range of motion.
- Two components of longer and more powerful drives are posture and flexibility. Chiropractic care aims to help improve those areas, leading to a better game.
- As we age and face immobility (whether it's from sitting at a desk all day or sitting in the car driving around town), we become less flexible. In order to effectively swing a golf club, your many joints need to collaborate, from the feet up to the hands, including ankles, knees, hips, spine, elbows and wrists. A lack of flexibility contributes to many repetitive motion injuries in the joints. As a chiropractic care facility, we aim to address, correct and prevent joint injuries.
- When combined with stretching and corrective exercises, chiropractic care is an all-natural and cost effective way to improve mobility… which translates to consistency during the four – five hours it takes to play 18 holes.
If you're looking to improve your game, don't waste time with expensive new high-tech clubs, shoes with the right spikes or the latest golf attire. They do nothing to better your playing. However, increased mobility and flexibility can surely improve your golf score. Just ask the pros – nearly 75% of them opt for regular chiropractic care while they are on tour each year.
Take it from Jeffry H. Blanchard himself, a golf professional and author of The Geometry of Golf who stated, “The chiropractor is the perfect choice to evaluate, educate, treat, condition and train those who choose to play golf.”
