Golf and Pain
I just realized
why and where golfing bothers the body !!!
I have just recently
started to golf. I have never before been
golfing. I have now been to the
driving range once, practiced in our back yard a
A few weekends ago I
went to golf -9 holes- at a PAR 3 course.
Now this meant nothing really to me. What I thought in my
head is: I will get some good exercise, some
fresh air, sun and of course bugs. It did not occur to me
that I might have sore muscles as I feel like I
am in good shape. Now I do realize, being
a massage therapist, that we use different
muscles doing different sports and
activities. However, I got to experience
this first hand.
I am not a competitive
person by nature. Lucky for me the course was
slow, meaning not may people so I did not feel
rushed. I took my time, focused and moved
slowly. We walked the course, pulling our
bags on wheels. Walking is part of the purpose
and reason golf interested me.
I kept score mostly
for a baseline to see improvement.
what muscles golfer use and where they may be
sore and need some help feeling better to you
are ready for you next game. My mid back
was the most sore, not my lower as I would have
suspected. Also my hands and wrists from
how the grip on the clubs works.
I certainly do not
consider myself an expert yet but now I have
first hand knowledge of how to massage those
folks that golf and have golfing injuries.
So please call TODAY
and schedule your appointment. I can
certainly help those muscles calm down, feel
better. I DO know what when your muscles work
with you and not against you...anything and
everything you do will be smoother and create
less aches and pains, hence a much better time
and game. See you soon
