Why You Should See a Golf Fitness Specialist

When playing golf, you put excessive amounts of pressure and stress on the vast majority of your body. Each swing of the club causes twisting motions to occur across your joints from your ankles all the way up to your neck. Over time, this can cause wear and tear.

If you’ve experienced any injuries stemming from golf, Dr. Baker can help! He’s trained to properly diagnose and treat golf-related injuries that, if left untreated, can begin to creep into your daily life, affecting more than just your game.

Professional or Amateur, Injuries Can Occur

Depending on your playing status, whether a casual player or professional, research has shown that injuries stem from different areas for each individual. Professional players primarily see injuries due to overuse, whereas amateurs can suffer due to overuse and poor biomechanics.

Incidence Rate of Low-Back Injuries in Golfers

  • 25% among professional players
  • Amateur players are twice as likely to injury their lower back while playing golf
  • Statistics suggest that half of all golfers will incur a lower back injury
