Have you noticed that your golf swing isn’t what it used to be? Have you tried a golf lesson, but still didn’t see any changes in your scores? The problem might be with your joints.
Your hip joints and lower back play a crucial role in your golf swing. Everyday activities like sitting with your legs crossed or driving to work can lock up these joints. If any of your joints are stuck and not moving as they should, you may be lacking the range of motion necessary for the proper golf swing. Similar to a car with the emergency break on, a stuck joint can keep you from performing at your best.
A great way to make sure all your joints are warmed up is to practice your golf swing with the opposite arm. This will help ensure that your joints are moving in all directions. Wellness visits are another great way to stay ahead of your training and avoid larger injuries.
Golf is a dynamic sport that requires an athletic discipline. Like any other sport it is import to make sure your body is running at peak performance to be able to play your best.
