There’s nothing like the calm of a wide open golf course or the thwack of the perfect shot. The game of golf beautifully combines mental focus with physical strength, precision and technique. But with the complex body mechanics involved in each swing, it’s very easy for something to go wrong. If you feel that telltale twinge of pain when you pick up your golf clubs, it’s time to cancel the next round and call us before things get worse.
Golf injuries commonly affect the elbows and shoulders, although they can sometimes strike the hips and lower back with repeated improper body rotation during your swing.
