Generally, the average golfer takes-up golf when he or she no longer cares to participates in physically demanding sports. Unfortunately, this lack of involvement in competitive play contributes to an overall decrease in flexibility —especially where the spine, shoulders, hips and pelvis (key components of a good golf swing) are concerned. Desk jobs and long daily commutes compound the situation.*Flexibility is the key to improving your game and reducing your pain.*
In addition to improving your golf swing, optimal flexibility also diminishes the possibility of injury while playing. In fact, the root cause of golf injuries is a lack of joint mobility and muscle pliability.The golf swing depends on nearly every joint in the human body: from the tips of the toes to the fingertips. When healthy and flexible, these joints work together like a well-oiled machine. However, when there is an injury to any of them, the healthy joints pick up the slack, resulting in strain and muscle fatigue.
This can cause serious repetitive motion injury to both the dysfunctional joints and the over-burdened (but otherwise healthy) joints, as well.
