Chiropractic Helps Lower Your Golf Score and Improve Health

Chiropractic care offers exciting opportunities for those interested in improving their golf game and in staying healthy while on the green this golf season.

Dr. Tammy Verlaan-Ross, Chiropractor at Life and Balance Centre, Rathfarnham, is helping golf lovers to stay on the green longer. "All too often we see golfers end up taking pain killers or having to reduce playing the game they love so much, all because of back pain from golf. Recently chiropractic treatment has really caught on with both amateurs and pro's as an excellent way to alleviate those on-the-green pains," said Dr. Tammy.

The problems occur from all those repetitive golf swings. It puts a significant strain on the lower back and other areas of the body. This can often result in imbalances in the controlling system of the body, the nervous system.  When the nervous system is out of balance, this can affects the muscles and joints of the body, resulting in decreased performance and often pain and discomfort.  Since neurologically based chiropractic works with balancing the nervous system they are in a good position to help golfers understand the correct way to take care of their bodies while still enjoying lots of golf.

Many of the nation's head golf instructors now regularly seek chiropractic care to keep themselves healthy while going through the daily physical grind of golf instruction. Top professional golfers, like Tiger Woods, seek chiropractic care on a regular basis.

How well does chiropractic work in aiding golfers?  Tiger Woods believes chiropractic treatment is a major contributor to his success on the PGA tour.  Woods says, "Being a chiropractic patient has really helped me immensely...lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I've been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It's as important to my training as practicing my swing."

According to a 2006 report by KPMG, Ireland sees more people teeing it up than other parts of the World.  

Dr. Tammy said, "It's our goal to educate golfers who are passionate about their game, that chiropractic can keep them playing longer, more often, and into their retirement years while playing without pain. Chiropractic is also terrific for preventing injuries."
