Anderson Chiropractic Repairs Golf Injuries
Dr. Scott Anderson has years of experiencing caring for the golf athlete. Our McMurray chiropractor and health team work together to heal your injuries so you quickly return to the course. Examples of some of the golf injuries we address include:
Back pain - pain in your back may result from an inadequate swing or repetitive swings. The muscles may be strained or you may have exerted too much pressure on the spine and cause a vertebrae to shift out of alignment. Back pain is common in golfers, but Dr. Anderson provides gentle relief with chiropractic adjustments. Then, Dr. Anderson goes a step beyond and teaches you exercises to improve your core strength. This enhances your performance and protects you from future injuries.
Neck pain - since you typically only swing in one direction, imbalances may occur within your muscles. A muscular imbalance or a sudden movement such as a golf swing, may twinge your neck and cause pain. Dr. Anderson evaluates your conditions and re-positions your neck into a natural alignment.
Wrist pain - the repetitive motion of swinging may aggravate your wrists or you may be hitting the ball out of inconvenient locations such as woods or a thick rough. This position may strain your wrist or leave the joint out of alignment. Our McMurray chiropractor adjusts your wrists to strengthen your grip and reduce your pain.
Medial Epicondylitis - pain in your elbow may also be the result of overuse. Consistent swinging in one direction places stress on your elbow joints. If you lack the strength or flexibility in your arms, you may also feel more damage and pain as your elbow tries to compensate.
Hip pain - the rotation required to hit the ball may tweak your hips. If your spine is not aligned from the top to bottom, your swing is interrupted and you feel pain. Consistent chiropractic adjustments position you for a perfect swing.
Knee pain - if your body is compensating for a lack of strength or flexibility, you may feel pain in your knees. Dr. Anderson adjusts your knees to reduce your discomfort.
Foot pain - we show you corrective exercises to improve your strength and alleviate pain that may radiate into your feet.
