Did you know that one third of golfers currently have or previously experienced lower back pain while playing golf.
Does this surprise you? So common is it, as I write this i’ve just finished treating a golfer with low back pain.
Maybe you subscribe to the idea that golf is a leisurely sport which is perfectly suitable for the middle aged and somewhat out of shape. Well I’m going to convince you to dispel that belief as false. There are IN FACT a large number of risk factors for lower back pain amongst other injuries such as golfer’s elbow and knee pain that are associated specifically with golf, that are not necessarily true for any other sport. At the Injury Rehab Centre our Physiotherapists and Osteopaths look after many golfing patients from the Cheltenham, Moorabbin, Mentone, Highett, Hampton, Black Rock, Beaumaris and Heatherton suburbs in relation to low back pain, golfer’s elbow and knee pain, just to name a few.
The ticking time...
