A golf swing is an extremely athletic movement that involves the entire body and can cause injury to almost any body structure. Whether you’re an occasional golfer, a serious amateur, or a professional, you’re likely to experience low back pain at some point in your golfing life.
In terms of frequency, low back pain is followed by pain in the shoulders, neck, wrists, elbows, ankles, and knees. Effective treatment requires a proper diagnosis based on thorough evaluation of the patient.

How Can Our Eugene Chiropractic Doctors Help?
If you are suffering from a pain that is strongly associated with your golfing, it’s a good idea to take a golf club to your consultation, where our chiropractors can study your movements and give you some pointers for mitigating the postural contributors to your problem.
A golf swing involves a powerful spiral force that travels from feet to crown. The body needs to be fit and elastic to control that kind of rotation. Our chiropractic care service will begin with the spine, or core, because that’s often where we find the origin of many problems.
Many people have core stability issues, which can also predispose them to back injuries, leading to a chain of events where the body can no longer compensate and further injury occurs.
If you’re suffering from acute or chronic back and neck pain caused by a golf injury, contact Pure Life Chiropractic right away. Call us at 541-343-5633 to learn how these gentle and safe treatments will help get you back on your feet and back into your golf game!
