Golfers' Low Back Pain Treatment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Fix and Repair Back Pain without Surgery or Injections in Malaysia

The golf swing is a complicated and asymmetrical movement that involves the coordination of the trunk and the limbs. Significant axial twisting, axial compression, anterior-posterior shearing, and lateral bending is being exerted on the spine during the golf swing. The most common cause of low back pain in amateur golfers are poor swing mechanics and poor physical condition. However, the most common cause of low back pain in professional golfers is an overuse injury. The axial compression force exposed to the spine during the swing may reach up to eight times the body weight in golfers. The force needed to prolapse an intervertebral disc in cadavers is reported to be lower than this axial compression force.

The more upright classic golf swing involves more simultaneous rotation of the hips and shoulders. This result in less rotational stress on the lumbar spine and less sideways bending of the spine at impact. The modern golf swing involves limited hip and pelvic rotation at the top of the backswing, and the hips are used to initiate the downswing while the shoulders and the trunk are still loading in the backswing. The reverse C position or the hyperextension of the lumbar spine is found in modern golf swing during the follow-through. All of the factors mentioned above can be the reason for lower back pain in advanced golfers.

What should you do when you experience back pain?

The first thing is to rest. Rest and avoidance of aggravating activities, including golf, are necessary to recover from back pain. You may also consider icing your back after an injury or an episode of pain. Try to ice the low back or painful areas for 15-20 minutes. Make sure not to ice longer than 20-minutes. Also, you will need to wrap the ice pack in a towel. Wrapping the ice pack in a cloth will prevent damage such as freezer burns. Call our office for instruction at 03 2093 1000.

However, rest and icing of the painful or injured areas alone are never enough. You will need to address the actual cause of your pain.
