Chiropractic care is great for a number of things, who would have thought it would be great for your golf game too! Chiropractic is a form of arts based on natural healing. This is a practice that focuses on the nervous system. The main points of interest are usually the spine as well as the nerves that extend from it. People who practice Chiropractic medicine are adamant about the fact that many diseases and other ailments begin when the body is unable to adapt to its surroundings. Rather than the use of chemical or evasive treatments like those used in modern medicine, chiropractic medicine locates problem areas and adjusts the musculoskeletal positioning in the body. This will cause less tension, less stress, less pain and optimum body performance.
There are different forms of chiropractic procedures. Imbalances are addressed through Activator Methods and Applied Kinesiology helps to assess the imbalance. A manual adjustment procedure is then preformed on the patient or a Cox Flexion Distraction. Either way the patient will have more range of motion, less stress on the spinal cord and a golf swing that they had better watch out for on the green.
You are probably wondering what one thing has to do with the other, just how are golf and chiropractic sciences connected? Well, golf is a sport that many people tend to underestimate. It is actually very physical, using nearly all of the body joints from the pelvis to the neck. If you have one area compromised then the fully functioning parts will have added stress to make up for the weakened areas lack of production. Range of motion and mobility do become blemished. This of course will lead to those areas of excess productivity eventually weakening as well.
It is a fact that the golfers grip, swing and a number of other important physical aspects that they must have in tip-top shape can become affected without the proper maintenance. A lot of this sport rides on the spine being in perfect alignment. Who better to perform this necessary maintenance than a chiropractor who is trained to perform these complicated musculoskeletal manipulations. The adjustments will enhance alignment, and you will be on your A-game.
PGA golfers have utilized the services of chiropractors to improve their game. Padraig Harrington as well as Tiger Woods and numerous others have admitted that they feel and play better with regular chiropractic care. They have been having chiropractic adjustments for many years. Is it possible that without the proper maintenance they would not have made it as far as they have? If it has admittedly improved their golf game, would it not serve to be just as beneficial to yours?
