Avoid Common Golf Injuries

Nathan Bruneau, MScPT, of Concept Physiotherapy, has provided us with the following insight.

The majority of golf injuries relate to the back. Men tend to injure themself most commonly in their Lower Back, Elbow (Golfer's or Tennis Elbow), and Shoulder, whereas Woman are likely to injure a wrist or their back.

If you injure yourself, it's likely that it will take approximately 5 weeks to recover. If you seek early treatment, you are more likely to make a full recovery, according to a study by McNicholas et al (1999).

Here is a link that Nathan has referred us to in order to avoid missing any time on the golf course.

The better you treat your body now, the longer you will be able to golf.
