Back pain is one of the most common complaints among golfers. Playing golf, you have the option to walk the course or drive a golf cart. Some players prefer to walk the greens for added exercise, but the bag full of clubs can be heavy. If the weight of the bag isn’t distributed properly, you’ll likely feel some pain in the back, neck, and shoulders at the end of just nine holes.
If you are learning to play golf, professional lessons are recommended. Learning to swing the club correctly is vital. Having the proper arc is important for hitting the ball where you want it to go. Equally as important is the effect of the swing on your body. It’s important that you aren’t overreaching or twisting as you swing the club, as this can lead to spinal misalignment.
Golfer’s elbow refers to inflammation of the tendons inside the lower forearm, just inside the elbow. This condition is similar to tennis elbow but affects a different part of the arm. It occurs due to excessive elbow strain when playing golf. Some golfers will say you cannot play too much golf. If you’ve developed a golfer’s elbow, you’ll quickly disagree. It can be quite painful and can keep you off the course for some time.
Knee and Hip Pain
Walking isn’t the greatest hazard to the joints on the golf course. Swinging the club is. If you’re overreaching, not properly squaring your hips, or not grounding your feet when you swing, you may injure your knees, hips, feet, and spine.
