Top 5 Golf Injuries

Low Back Pain

Select an injury location on the golf player

What is Low Back Pain?

Low back pain is the most common golf injury. The repetitive action of the golf swing is the number one cause of low back pain in golfers, so golf swing faults should be corrected by a professional. A 'Reverse Angle' swing fault is a common cause of back pain that occurs when the spine deviates from the vertical during the swing.

Numerous structures of the lower back can be affected - the discs, ligaments, muscles or Facet joints - but in golfers, particularly older ones, the discs are most commonly affected. A herniated disc or 'slipped disc' refers to a protrusion of gel material from inside the disc. This can cause back pain and / or Sciatica, particularly when bending forwards.

What can you do to prevent Low Back Pain?

Research has shown that specific back exercises, known as core strength and stability exercises, can be effective in the prevention of low back pain. These back exercises are most effective where the back pain is caused by poor posture combined with the stress of a faulty golf swing.

The Stabiliser Pressure Biofeedback device is very useful for learning these back exercises at home. More advanced core strength exercises using Swiss Balls can then be used to relieve and prevent back pain.

What should you do if you suffer Low Back Pain?

Pain-relieving medication prescribed by a doctor and heat packs are usually necessary during the first few days following a herniated disc. Research has shown that patients with a herniated disc should remain as active as they possibly can, so long as their symptoms are not aggravated. A back brace can be helpful to improve posture and relieve pain by preventing aggravating movements.
