Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers keeps Baton Rouge golfers at the top of their games!

Golfers in the middle of winter find it hard to believe, but golf time nears! For those in the warmth all the time, golf time is anytime! For golfers near and far, chiropractic is ready to help, specifically when low back pain, the biggest injury culprit in golf (1), strikes.  Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is ready to keep you, the Baton Rouge golfer, going and get you back to the links if back pain messes with your game.

So what does a Baton Rouge golfer do when lower back pain impedes the game? Make a chiropractic appointment at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers! What will Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers do with you? A thorough examination to figure out the source of the pain and set a treatment plan to get it under control, so you can get back to the course, of course!

First, the examination. So many Baton Rouge back pain patients tell us that they’ve never experienced such a comprehensive examination prior to this. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers delights in making sure that everything is examined so that a proper diagnosis causing the lower back pain is determined. A hip may even be the offender or contributor to back pain. (2) We don’t want to miss that! From there, the treatment plan is set.

The treatment plan may well include spinal manipulation and some rehabilitation. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers offers the evidence-based treatment technique called Cox Technic which drops intradiscal pressures and relieves pain. Whether spinal stenosis or a disc herniation or any other number of conditions is the cause, our Baton Rouge chiropractic care may well be the answer.

The rehabilitation for golfers helps in recovery from as well as prevention of back pain. Back pain prevention may be the most imperative for golfers!  The golf swing and how the body moves during it are key.  It’s repetitive. You don’t want to keep repeating a move that is irritating to your low back. If you have any muscle imbalances, they may need to be addressed. (1) Rotation and extension of the lumbar spine are affected when swinging a golf club, two motions that may inflame the lumbar spine. (3) Wearing a lumbar belt or corset as part of rehabilitation when these two motions are found to be irritating may decrease these motions and control the lumbar spine motion a bit and prevent pain.

So, if you are a Baton Rouge golfer and find that it causes you back pain, contact Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers for a Baton Rouge golf and back pain consultation. You and your golf game will be glad you did once the snow melts away or you’re ready for your next golf game.
