Let’s face it, whether you are a golfer, stay at-home mom, or have to sit at a desk all day for work, you have probably had some sort of bout with low back pain. For some of you, it was and continues to be very debilitating.
As a golfer, you want your round of 18 to be enjoyable, and pain free. Once your low back begins to start barking, it affects the rest of your game. Whether your low back is aggravated on your back swing or follow through, your body begins to compensate and put you into faulty swing patterns.
The “big rocks” of the body that are responsible for the majority of motion in your body are your foot/ankle complex, hips, and thoracic spine. When 1 or more of these don’t do their job and are tight or limited, your low back has to pick up the slack and do more than it’s required. Over time, if these issues haven’t been addressed, you start to develop low back pain and for some of you, much worse.
Today we are going to focus on the thoracic spine and how to improve it’s function and mobility. As a result, this should take some pressure off of your low back and allow you to play more pain free.
