How a Chiropractor Can Help Treat and Manage Golf Injuries

Golfing can be a great sport and social activity. However, this sport can also take a toll on your body. If you have experienced a golf injury, Dr. Rogers and our team at Elan Wellness Center in Tampa can help. We provide quality chiropractic care for a variety of conditions and injuries, including golf injuries.

Common Golf Injuries

Golfing requires actions from your entire body. These actions can sometimes be strenuous on certain joints, ligaments, and muscles. Let's look at some common types of golfing injuries.

  • Back Injuries – Due to the types of big swings required in golf, it is not uncommon to see back injuries. You might experience a pulled muscle if you do not stretch properly before physical activity. A slipped disc could also occur. Regular golfing may also result in the spine shifting out of alignment.
  • Rotator Cuff Injury - The rotator cuff is the big joint of the shoulder. Because the shoulder is used heavily in golfing, rotator cuff damage could be a significant risk.
  • Golfer's Elbow - This type of injury occurs when the elbow is overused and the joint becomes inflamed.
  • Knee Injuries
  • Foot Injuries
  • Ankle Injuries
  • Wrist Injuries
