Attention All Golfer’s!

Stay healthy and relaxed with golf

Exercising in the fresh air, hitting the ball over the lush green grass and spending time with congenial fellow players – the life of a hobby golfer can be very good! So, it’s no wonder that golf is becoming ever more popular.

Golf not only relaxes but it is also good for coordination.
 The social aspect also plays a part: Spending time with like-minded people after the round is a wonderful way of relaxing. But that’s not all: Experts say that the green sport even improves stress tolerance, as every stroke requires calmness and balance.Golf improves concentration, the sense of balance and hand-eye coordination. This is vital when you need to hit the ball in the right place at the right moment. with its specific requirements for hand-eye coordination, can help to restore lost capabilities in those who have suffered a stroke. Another positive and important effect, particularly for older golf players, is the prevention of falls. Through constantly having to find their balance in various swing positions, golfers have a better sense of balance.

Many golf devotees suffer from back and joint complaints, particularly if their swing technique isn’t perfect or if they train/play too intensively. Leading to Golfer’s Elbow and/low back pain.

Good news is that, not only is Golfer’s Elbow particularly responsive to treatment.  Altering the sequence of movements during sport and wearing an elbow orthosis for a short period of time is usually sufficient. This relieves the strained extensor and flexor muscles of the hand.

The same goes with back pain. Changing the movement routine, allowing sufficient regeneration phases and performing additional abdominal and back muscle training is usually sufficient to take the strain off the spine.
