A compreshensive golf and fitness program
#1 Lower back – caused by rotation and extension in golf swing.
Solution: Strength training, corrective exercising and proper instruction will increase your range of motion in your spine and hip, resulting in less lower back pain.
#2 Elbow-Medial and lateral epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow) are caused by poor swing mechanics and increase with age and frequency.
Solution: The technique in your swing can improve with guidance from a professional golfer and the physical conditioning needed when bone density and muscle mass begin to decrease with age.
#3 Wrist-overuse of the wrist flexor and extensor tendons cause pain and prevents golfers from having a proficient swing.
Solution: By strengthening the forearm and hand muscles, incidence of injury decreases.
#4 Shoulder – Injuries are suffered in the lead arm when stress is caused by the exertion of power within the range of motion during a swing. Impingement Syndrome, rotator cuff problems and arthritis are issues golfers experience with an inept range of motion and strength.
Solution: Targeting the shoulder with corrective exercise and building muscle will alleviate the issues associated with shoulder pain.
Golfers who perform regular exercise and engage in a fitness program experience less occurrence of injury.
