Back pain can come from injuries in other areas of your body. (We call this the KINETIC CHAIN) One of the biggest contributors to back pain that I see in our clinics is problems starting in the knees. As most people know, recently Tiger Woods underwent a major knee surgery. The result was Tiger walking with a limp, what we call a modified gait pattern. This was most notable right after the surgery. It is very common that after this type of surgery you can develop some form of back pain.
I have seen Tiger play live on several occasions over the last couple of years. Most recently I saw him playing on Sunday at Bay Hill. I have spent the last 15 years of my life observing movement patterns, and I noticed Tiger was still limping a bit. (it is very subtle) I also noticed that on several occasions on the greens when he was waiting for Zach Johnson and Sean O'Hair to putt, he was doing a lot of twisting trying to loosen up his back. This behavior is definitely something that I had not noticed in the past. He was stretching similar to what Fred Couples does when he is trying to loosen up his notoriously bad back.
