Golf is a favorite sport for many Americans. It provides a great workout with the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sunshine. Like any sport, those who play want to perform optimally. To do so, golfing posture has to be maintained and cared for properly. Learn more about how to keep your swing at its best with this guide from Enhanced Living Chiropractic, with convenient locations in Greer, Inman, Simpsonville, and Travelers Rest, SC.
Understanding Golfing Posture
Many people believe that golf relies on the feet and the arms, but there is much more that goes into a proper swing. It begins in the feet, yes, but the movement travels up the legs to the back and finally through the arms. And while it’s in the back, if you’re not maintaining a healthy posture, it can easily create misalignment of the spine, herniation, and more.
Proper golfing posture means that as you lean forward, your spine stays in a straight line from the shoulders down to the hips. This posture helps your swing, as it allows for maximum rotation and power from the core muscles. It also helps protect your spine as you swing.
Achieving Proper Golfing Posture
Often, achieving proper golfing posture can be a challenge if you’ve been using improper posture for some time or if your back and core muscles are weak. However, it’s possible to improve your posture with the help of a chiropractor.
Chiropractors provide several methods that correct problems created by poor posture and help you keep proper posture more naturally. One of these methods is spinal adjustment, in which your spine is realigned to its proper form.
Other treatments include spinal decompression therapy, massage therapy, and therapeutic exercises. A combination of these methods can stretch and strengthen your spine and core as well as relieve tension and scar tissue that might be impacting your game.
Additionally, you’ll receive guidance on steps you can take at home and on the golf course. This can include anything from nutritional guidance to habits to build and exercises you can perform.
