Golf season is coming! Believe it or not golf is a physically demanding sport, and therefore golf injuries are very common. As an example, Tiger Woods had back surgery for an injured lower back disc. As physiotherapists, patients often say to us, "please help me, I absolutely have to get back on the golf course, preferably tomorrow". No doubt Tiger will also have physiotherapy. The purpose of this article is to learn some common causes of golf injuries, and learn some injury prevention tips and warm-up exercises.
Why bother exercising? “I’m too busy, I’m not fat, I’ve tried it but my back aches and my feet hurt.” “I would like to exercise my right not to exercise”. We have all heard these statements before, but maybe we can provide some exercise facts that will help motivate you or get you back on track.
