Young Chiropractic keeps Easley golfers at the top of their games!

Golfers in the depths of winter find it hard to believe, but golf time nears! For those in the warmth all the time, golf time is anytime! For golfers everywhere, chiropractic is your friend, especially when low back pain, the most common injury in golf (1), affects you.  Young Chiropractic is ready to keep you, the Easley golfer, going and get you back to the links if back pain interferes with your game.

So what does a Easley golfer do when lower back pain interrupts the game? Make a chiropractic appointment at Young Chiropractic! What will Young Chiropractic do with you? A thorough examination to determine the source of the pain and set a treatment plan to get it under control, so you can get back to the course, of course!

First, the examination. So many Easley back pain patients tell us that they’ve never experienced such a thorough examination before. Young Chiropractic prides itself on making sure that everything is considered so that a proper diagnosis causing the lower back pain is found. A hip may even be the offender or contributor to back pain. (2) We don’t want to miss that! From there, the treatment plan is set.

The treatment plan may well include spinal manipulation and some rehabilitation. Young Chiropractic offers the evidence-based treatment technique called Cox Technic which drops intradiscal pressures and relieves pain. Whether spinal stenosis or a disc herniation or any other number of conditions is the cause, our Easley chiropractic care may well be the answer.

The rehabilitation for golfers helps in recovery from as well as prevention of back pain. Back pain prevention may be the most imperative for golfers!  The golf swing and how the body moves during it are key.  It’s repetitive. You don’t want to keep repeating a move that is irritating to your low back. If you have any muscle imbalances, they may need to be addressed. (1) Rotation and extension of the lumbar spine are involved when swinging a golf club, two motions that may inflame the lumbar spine. (3) Wearing a lumbar belt or corset as part of rehabilitation when these two motions are found to be irritating may decrease these motions and control the lumbar spine motion a bit and prevent pain.

So, if you are a Easley golfer and find that it causes you back pain, contact Young Chiropractic for a Easley golf and back pain consultation. You and your golf game will be glad you did once the snow melts away or you’re ready for your next golf game.
