Golf Injury Prevention
A golf injury is one of the most common issues with all amateur golfers. But having adequate strength and flexibility of muscles and joints and participating in effective training technique, can also prevent a golf injury.
Well-conditioned limbs and joints that are under control when the stresses of the swing are encountered will greatly reduce risk of a golf injury.
If your body motion is out of control when you execute the swing, the muscles and tendons have little room for error. The result is likely a tear or strained tendon or ligament?keeping you off the course indefinitely.
The golf swing is a complicated movement (skill). In order to maximize your distance and power, you must have a high level of flexibility (range of motion) and force in the joints involved. This would include the shoulders, back and hips.
And when looking at the areas of a golf injury, the above mentioned areas are at the top of the list. Go figure!
Keep in mind that with an above average level of strength and flexibility and swing technique, you will not only reduce the occurrence of a golf injury, but also enhance the quality of your game.
Many golfers think they are generally healthy and able to play a round of golf without a golf injury?however, I have heard and read dozens of times where a golfer gets injured on the course?swinging a golf club. Has that happened to you or a golfing buddy?
Somewhere I read a statistic from 10 years ago. There was over 39,000 golf injuries treated in emergency rooms back in 1995! Wow! That's unbelievable! How about all the injuries that weren't reported or that were treated by the golfer himself? Or how about the chronic golf injuries the golfer 'lives with' just to be able to play golf?
These are numbers from 10 years ago! I wonder what they are now? I'm here to tell you golf is a physical sport and without the proper training, you'll be added to that number mentioned above.
I don't think it's a tough sell to say that participating in a golf strength and flexibility program will help you avoid a golf injury.
