Why Your Golf Swing Sucks

Most people think that golf is an easy sport. You hit a ball with a stick into the hole. However, it is one of the most difficult movements for the human body. This is because it is impossible to make the same move over and over repeatable. Each swing is completely different due to the lie of the ball, what club you are using, and the target you are choosing.

What makes the best golfers in the world the best, they are able to make each swing as repeatable as possible.

This is due to the fact they have swings made for their body, along with a body that moves well and has good joint control.

How can you start to find a repeatable swing you may ask.

Well the first thing you can do is work with a golf pro that knows how to fit a swing to your body and keep working with them. Do not take one lesson and call it good. It takes many months to make a swing change stick.

The second thing you can do is work with a rehab chiropractor that specializes in golf. They understand what ranges of motion are needed for the golf swing and the demands it places on the knees, hips, and back.

Most golfers have pain or tightness when they play because they are not able to rotate in the hips and thoracic spine, along with now knowing how to transfer their weight efficiently in the swing.

These are the root cause issues for knee and back pain in golfers. Once these are corrected, people tend not to have any issues playing 18 or 36 holes in a day.
