Hip and lower back pain are common conditions in both athletes and non-athletes in Malaysia. Chiropractic Specialty Center® (CSC) offers holistic natural treatment for lasting relief; contact us today! 

Low back pain that does not resolve after 2-4 weeks of relative rest may require evaluation as a more severe injury can be the possible source of pain. One study showed that about 80% of athletes with low back pain result from disc herniation were able to return to sports gradually with conservative management. This study showed that most of them took about 5-months to return to their games. Conservative management of hip pain and low back pain includes relative rest, physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, rehabilitation exercises, and oral corticosteroids. Relative rest involves avoiding activities that can cause pain. Chiropractic care in KL, coupled with physiotherapy, has yielded better results when it comes to treating lower back injuries.

Once the low back pain has subsided, We will introduce intensive trunk stabilization and gradual painless return to sport. Every golfer should perform the swing with a stable spine to reduce the chance of injury. CSC’s clinical team can strengthen transverse abdominus and multifidus muscles with dynamic stabilization exercises. These core muscles are vital in reducing the activation of paraspinal muscles throughout the swing, reducing the intensity of pain—proper warm-up and stretching for at least 10 minutes before the game can reduce the risk of golfer’s back pain and injury. The aerobic endurance of the golfers must be improved as muscle fatigue can be one of the leading causes that lead to damage. Shortening the backswing is shown to reduce low back pain and injuries without compensating club head velocity or swing accuracy.
