Common golf injuries that can benefit from Dr. Milt's Golf19.
Spring is almost here! Golfers will start going back to the driving range and heading out to the golf course. Golf is not a physically demanding sport, but it does require you to move your body in some unusual positions.
Some golfers may not have the luxury of year-round warm weather. Returning to golfing may lead to discomfort as your body gets back in "golf" shape.
Here is a list of some common golf injuries that can benefit from Dr. Milt's Golf19 and those that may need to be checked by a doctor.
Back: Your golf swing requires you to twist and rotate your back. Your swing can put stress on your back and cause soreness or tightness. Some discomfort is normal. The pain may cause you to alter your swing and lead to bad habits that would poorly affect your game.
Sharp, stinging pain is not normal. It could be a nerve or spinal injury that affects your neck and back. This is not something you should play through because it can make the issue worse.
Legs: It is not uncommon for your legs to feel sore from golfing. Your legs provide your body support during your swing. Although the movement is mostly from the waist up, your whole body moves together in a proper swing. Familiar places to feel soreness are in your hamstrings, calves, quads, and groin.
Knee pain can be a sign of something more serious. Your knees can be under a lot of stress on the downswing. Tiger Woods is a perfect example of the damage golf can put on your knees. Even with the perfect swing, golf can cause structural damage to your knees. If you experience any pain in your knees, see a doctor.
Arms and Shoulders: The most common injury is "tennis elbow" or "golf elbow." This condition causes pain where your forearm muscles tendons attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. This injury is caused by repetitive movements and hyperextension of your elbows. Common symptoms are soreness and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.
"Golfers' elbow" can lead to stiff and painful forearms. Gripping clubs too tight can lead to this ailment. It is also because the pain can spread from your elbow into your forearm, wrists, and hands.
Aches or sharp pain in your shoulders should not be taken lightly. Torn rotator cuffs or severed tendons are not uncommon for golfers.
Some things to do to prepare for your Spring Golf outings:
- Strengthen your forearm muscles. Lift light weights or squeeze a tennis ball as an exercise to help your muscles prepare for the stress of golf.
- Stretch before your activity. Warm-up your muscles by doing gentle stretches before you begin your game.
- Fix your form. Ask a professional to check your form to avoid strain on your muscles.
- Use the right equipment. If you're using older golfing irons, consider upgrading to lighter graphite clubs.
- Know when to rest. Try not to overdo it. Start slowly at the range or just play a few holes. At the first sign of pain, take a break.
Use Dr. Milt's Golf19.
We recommend applying Dr. Milt's Golf19 before and after your outing. Spray and rub Dr. Milt's Golf19 into your problem areas and let dry. Then use a generous amount of Dr. Milt's Golf19 cream on top for longer-lasting effects.
Keep some Dr. Milt's Golf19 spray in your golf bag and the cream in your locker to increase blood flow and relieve swelling and soreness. It also feels great after a shower.
The best advice is to consult a doctor for any excessive pain or discomfort. You don't want to make issues worse by playing through the pain.
