Quite a few of the clients who regularly visit our Chiropractic Clinic in Stoke on Trent for treatment are avid golfers. They often come into the clinic seeking treatment for a golf injury or to resolve some intermittent pain that they are experiencing.
They are often surprised to discover that their golf game improves dramatically after they have received a chiropractic treatment. Golfers often find that chiropractic care helps them swing their club more efficiently, which results in more distance on the ball and better accuracy. The golfers we treat also find it easier to walk around the golf course and they experience far less joint pain after each golfing session.
In this post, I’ll explain exactly why chiropractic care helps golfers perform better on the course and reduces their pain levels. I’ll also identify some of the common golfing injuries that chiropractic care can treat.

How chiropractic helps you perfect your golf swing
Chiropractic care involves the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders in the musculoskeletal system, with a primary focus on the spine. It helps to ensure that your musculoskeletal system is correctly aligned and helps your body function more smoothly. Chiropractic adjustments can also treat certain conditions and injuries.
The main way that chiropractic care improves golf performance is by ensuring that your joints are capable of smoothly swinging a golf club. Chiropractic treatments keep your back, hips, knees, and other joints well-aligned, so it is easier to perform the twisting movements necessary for a good golf swing.
When the joints are well aligned, it also becomes easier to use the body’s muscles effectively, which can add a substantial amount of power to your golf swing. Another excellent reason to receive chiropractic care is that it ensures you go into each game without any subluxations (spinal misalignments), which can greatly increase the risk of an injury when playing golf.
The final way that chiropractic helps your golf game is by ensuring you have good posture. This will help you utilise your body in an optimal way and not overburden certain muscles or joints when swinging your club. It also makes it easier to walk around the course and avoid repetitive strain injuries.
How chiropractic can help you recover from injuries faster
As a chiropractor in Stoke on Trent, I regularly treat local athletes for their sporting injuries. Chiropractic care can help you recover from golfing injuries in several ways:
Spine realignment after an injury
Performing a golf swing requires a lot of twisting movement in the spine and neck. This can sometimes lead to injury if you are not warmed up or are not using good technique. Chiropractic care help by ensuring your spine is back in alignment after you suffer an injury, reducing your recovery time and helping you get back on the golf course sooner.
Pinched nerves are a fairly common golfing injury. A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve is compressed by bones, ligaments, or tendons. This type of injury is more likely to happen when you have been performing repetitive motions, like performing dozens of golf swings at a driving range. Chiropractic can adjust the bones that are placing pressure on the affected nerve, relieving your pain.
Our chiropractic clinic in Stoke on Trent has a very good reputation for helping clients deal with muscle strains. We will help you recover from your golfing-related muscle strains much faster and get you back on the green before you know it. We use several techniques to deal with strains including kinesiology taping, the Graston Technique, heat therapy, and Active Release Therapy.
This is a common repetitive strain issue amongst golfers. We can check the health of the affected joint and provide a treatment plan that restores mobility.
Most golfers experience back pain at some stage in their lives. It is typically caused a muscle strain or alignment issue. Our experienced team of chiropractors at our chiropractic clinic in Stoke on Trent can diagnose the root cause of your back pain and provide the right treatment.
