Learn How To Prevent Back Pain When Golfing

Golf season is coming here in Missouri, and that means golfers are heading back to the golf course.

But after a winter of sitting around, a return to activities that you haven't done in awhile can lead to flare ups of old aches & pains. This blog will help you to prevent back pain while golfing this year.

Golf is a rotational sport, but the anatomy of the low back (lumbar spine) is not suited well to twisting.  Therefore, too much twisting in the low back can leave you at risk for back pain from your golf swing.

Steps For Preventing Back Pain When Golfing & Improving Your Swing:

  1. Turn your leading leg out.  This will allow you to rotate your pelvis through more on your follow up.
  2. On your backswing, wind up by rotating your pelvis backward and shifting your weight to your rear leg.
  3. Wind up your torso, allowing your arms to follow.  Think of it like winding up a spring.
  4. Just Release the Tension. When you swing, you're just unwinding the spring tension you built-up during your backswing.
  5. Rotate your pelvis forward as you allow your trunk and then arms to follow.
  6. Follow through with your pelvis facing the direction you want the ball to go, allowing your rearfoot to pivot up onto your toe.
  7. Ending the swing on the outside part of your front foot and the toe of your rearfoot is the final step.

Hopefully these tips help you to not only avoid back pain when golfing, but also to improve your golf game!
