PREHAB for golfers:
Golf is a sport enjoyed by many people, young and old, worldwide. Though it is viewed as a low-impact, low risk sport, many golfers sustain golf-related injuries. Common injuries involve the elbow, wrists, shoulder and low back. To both amateur and professional golfers, low back injury is the most prevalent. This is either the result of poor conditioning and improper golf swing mechanics or excessive practice and repetitive swing motion.
- A common structure involved with low back injury is the quadratus lumborum muscle. An injury to this muscle limits the lateral flexion of the trunk, which is a motion essential to the mechanics of a golf swing.
- Prolonged bending or sudden twisting of the trunk may have caused this injury. For a golfer, these positions are vital to produce a proper swing. This injury can sideline a golfer for some time but it could easily be prevented.
