Back Pain - The Two Most Important Principles to Tiger Woods Back Pain!

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 @ 12:52 PM

I have spent twenty years pondering the “why” of back pain.  Without the “why” it’s very hard to treat the pain and it’s also very hard to get better.  I am an avid golfer and have treated golfers at every level; professionals, amateurs and even the beginners.   I know golf and can link it to the “why”. So here goes, it’s not complicated but it requires your attention. 
  • The fundamental principle is what we call the chain reaction.
  • The secondary principle has to do with functional movement which occurs during the golf swing.

The first principle for Tiger is the effect of changes in the chain reaction.  What does that mean? Movement of the body is the result of chain reactions; specific movement will cause other reactions both up the chain and down the chain.  It’s like the old saying “the foot bone is connected to the leg bone, and the leg bone is connected to the knee bone.”  The sport of golf entails explosive movements of the golf swing and we need all our muscle doing what they should be doing at the right time and if not the result is a breakdown in the chain reaction.

Is Your Heavy Golf Bag Causing You Back Pain & Hurting Your Game?

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Fri, Jun 15, 2012 @ 02:44 PM

Carrying any heavy bag strains your posture and is a common cause of back pain. Having a golf bag overloaded with clubs can weigh as much as 35 pounds. Limit the weight of any bag you carry to no more than 10% of your body weight. If you can’t lighten your bag protect your back by using a pull-cart bag on the golf course and by buying the lightest golf bag that you can. Make sure to do stretching exercises before and after your golf game to help prevent back pain.

Sporting Events Causing You Back Pain?

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Fri, Jun 01, 2012 @ 05:50 PM

Summer is here and is a great time for different sporting events. The problem is that stadium seats and bleachers are not very comfortable or supportive for your back. If possible, bring your own seating to the game or a seat cushion if you have to sit in bleachers or stadium seats. If you can bring any type of portable product that provides support to your lower back while sitting will help.
