David your Osteopath, delivers good Treatment & Exercises

to reduce risk of recurring injury.

PLEASE CLICK HEADINGS FOR INFORMATION
  • STOP IT HAPPENING

    Open or Close

    David will help you to regain;

    • Joint stability, providing control exercises delivering mobility using isometric strengthening

    • Balancing muscle tone, length & strength using appropriate techniques

    • Moving onto more functional dynamic strengthening exercises, as soon as appropriate

    Promoting good postural & movement patterns to reduce risk of recurring injury.

  • LOWER BACK - LUMBAR SPINE

    Open or Close

    Among professional & amateur golfers, low back pain has been cited as the most common golf-related injury.

    • In the modern swing, the golfer finishes in a lordotic 'reversed c' position.

    • This 'reversed c' leads to hyper-extension of the lower back which adds increased stress on the joints & para spinal muscles of the lumbar spine.

    • Increased loads to the lumbar spine during the golf swing, as well as the large forces generated by these muscles.

    • This may predispose the golfer to muscular strains, spondylosis (degenerative spine condition) & associated risk of herniated discs.

  • MID BACK PAIN

    Open or Close

    The Mid Back or Thoracic Spine:

    • The middle of the upper back or thoracic spine can make or break the golf swing.

    • A flexible and supple T-spine will allow for smooth swing mechanics while restrictions will inevitably lead to poor performance &/or injury.

    • The ribs need to be able to expand, contract & rotate. This allows the diaphragm to move freely.

    • Rotation can be restricted if the muscles between the ribs (the intercostal muscles) are tight. You may have felt something similar to a sharp, stabbing pain in your ribs after a day of hitting balls.

    • This could be your intercostal muscles telling you that they have worked too hard.

    This is particularly important when associated with general arthritic spinal conditions.

  • NECK OR CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

    Open or Close
    • As well as having similar spinal restrictions, the neck area is one of the most important for golf.

    • Good stable mechanics for the golfer's eye-to-ball connection is fundamental in allowing the whole body swing to work correctly.

  • WRIST HAND INJURIES

    Open or Close

    The wrist is one of the most common sites of injury in golfers.

    The wrist accounts for 13–20% of all injuries in amateurs & 20–27% of all injuries in professionals in golf.

  • SHOULDER INJURIES

    Open or Close

    Shoulder pain in golfers is a relatively common occurrence compared to other sites of the body. Accounting for approximately 8–18% of all golf injuries.

    • The shoulder goes through a large range of movement during the golf swing.

    • Consequently, excessive practice can produce problems of the shoulder due to overuse.

    • Injuries to the shoulder in golfers are mainly restricted to the lead shoulder, i.e. the left shoulder in right-handed golfers.

    • Studies have found that shoulder pain may be localised to the acromio-clavicular (AC) joint, with the potential for either osteoarthritis or distal clavicle osteolysis.

  • ELBOW INJURIES

    Open or Close

    Elbow injuries are common in golfers, especially in amateurs & particularly in females.

    • This is thought to be due to the increased carrying angle seen in the female population.

    Elbow injuries account for 25–33% of all injuries in amateurs & 7–10% of all injuries in professionals.
