Prevent Golf Injuries
A golf injury is one of the most common
issues with all amateur golfers. But having adequate strength
and flexibility of muscles and joints and participating in
effective training technique, can also prevent a golf injury.
Well-conditioned limbs and joints that are under control when
the stresses of the swing are encountered will greatly reduce
risk of a golf injury.
If your body motion is out of control when you execute the
swing, the muscles and tendons have little room for error.
The result is likely a tear or strained tendon or ligament…keeping
you off the course indefinitely.
The golf swing is a complicated movement (skill). In order
to maximize your distance and power, you must have a high
level of flexibility (range of motion) and force in the joints
involved. This would include the shoulders, back and hips.
And when looking at the areas of a golf injury, the above
mentioned areas are at the top of the list. Go figure!
Keep in mind that with an above average level of strength
and flexibility and swing technique, you will not only reduce
the occurrence of a golf injury, but also enhance the quality
of your game.
Many golfers think they are generally healthy and able to
play a round of golf without a golf injury…however, I have
heard and read dozens of times where a golfer gets injured
on the course…swinging a golf club. Has that happened to you
or a golfing buddy?
Somewhere I read a statistic from 10 years ago. There was
over 39,000 golf injuries treated in emergency rooms back
in 1995! Wow! That’s unbelievable! How about all the injuries
that weren’t reported or that were treated by the golfer himself?
Or how about the chronic golf injuries the golfer ‘lives with’
just to be able to play golf?
These are numbers from 10 years ago! I wonder what they are
now? I’m here to tell you golf is a physical sport and without
the proper training, you’ll be added to that number mentioned
I don’t think it’s a tough sell to say that participating
in a golf strength and flexibility program will help you avoid
a golf injury.
