As the number one orthopedic hospital in the country, our rehabiltation specialists are experts in providing tips to help you stay active and injury-free on the golf course.
The most common injury for golfers is back pain. Many golfers do not swing the club the same way each time and therefore place unnatural stresses and forces through the back. High level and/or professional golfers may also experience back pain due to overuse. Additional injuries that golfers encounter include "golfer's elbow" (inflammation of the tendons originating at the inner part of the elbow), and pain or injury to the neck, shoulder, wrist, hips, knees, and foot or ankle.
