What’s the most common golf-related injury you see in the clinic?
I was asked this question by a personal trainer after a presentation I gave on injury prevention. And here was my answer…
VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION (Please excuse grammatical errors, as this is simply a transcription of conversational speaking)
It’s such an amazing sport because you just move everything. You’ve got everything from an impingement at the AC joint on the back swing to hip arthritis because they are rotating over it. Of course, the back stuff. With golfers I probably see more back issues than anything and really if they were just more active, more focused on stretching rather than just being always so strong and just having the range of motion to get back into those ranges of motion I think a lot of that could be helped.
I could come in a few months and do something specific for golf if you guys are interested in that because its an incredibly big topic actually. There are all kinds of things that can go wrong in a swing and hurt the body.
