Pain shouldn't be par for the course A little know-how can help golfers avoid unnecessary injury

Provided By:

(NC)-Considering the number of times a swing is repeated during a game of golf, it is not surprising that the season often ends early for those who are not physically prepared.

Every year, Ontario's chiropractors treat countless golfers for injuries that could easily have been prevented. That's why the Ontario Chiropractic Association is launching a new public awareness campaign, called Get in the Game Without the Pain.

"Our focus is to help Ontarians stay active and healthy, and golf is a great way to do that," says OCA President Dr. Thomas Gadsby. "The program was designed to help golfers by giving them the information they need to avoid common injuries."

Some of the injuries chiropractors frequently treat among golf enthusiasts include low back, neck and shoulder pain, muscle strain and tendonitis.

"It's unfortunate that a lot of people miss out on much of the golf season due to pain," says Dr. Kristina Peterson, of the OCA's External Relations Committee. "We really wanted to give Ontarians practical information that they can put to use on the green."

The program, which features a poster and an accompanying brochure, is available on the OCA website, at www.chiropractic.on.ca, or by calling 1-877-327-2273.

Doctors of chiropractic are spinal health experts, trained to assess, diagnose and treat disorders related to the spine, nervous system and joints. Many high-performance athletes, including professional golfers, rely on chiropractic care to help keep them in the game. To find a chiropractor in your area, go to www.chiropractic.on.ca.
