Chiropractic Care Boosts Golfers’ Performance

Spring is here!  And that means many golfers will be dusting off their clubs and heading to the greens.  Golf can be fantastic exercise and a powerful source of stress reduction.  However, golf can also be hard on the spine, often triggering back disorders.  That’s why Dr. Smith teaches patients how to keep their spines up to par when hitting the links.  And, exciting new research shows that regular chiropractic care may boost a golfer’s performance.

Here are some tips:

  • Focus on your posture — both on and off the course.
  • Choose to walk the course, rather than rent a cart.
  • Invest in a portable, hand-pull cart for your golf bag.
  • Warm up before you tee off.

And finally, do like the pros.  According to Dr. Tom La Fountain, a chiropractor who tours with the PGA, 70 to 75 percent of the athletes on the tour are under regular chiropractic care.

But you don’t have to be a pro golfer to reap the rewards of chiropractic care.  Dr. Smith finds that amateur golfers derive significant benefits from chiropractic as well — both in terms of injury prevention and in terms of optimizing athletic performance. Dr. Barbara Smith
