Play Golf? Avoid Lower Back Pain With These Stretches. by charlestlee

Brian Yee PT, MPhty, OCS, FAAOMPT

There are numerous studies that have come out recently that show the loss of lead leg internal rotation of the hip in the golf swing has a high prevelance of low back pain in golfers. This is due to the lead leg in the golf swing acting as your swivel / finishing point in the swing. With limitations in the hip, the back has to work harder to finsh the swing. 

You should work on the foam roll to loosen the lead leg hip musculature, knee to chest and pirformis stretches can also help.

Standard back stretches can help alleviate your back after golf, but consider the causitive reasons why your back is hurting in the first place. I work at a Nike Golf Performance Center called Terminus Club ( we utilize 3D Motion Capture Reality systems to analyze your swing, as well as utilize a Physical Therapist to determine the physical limitations of the body. From there we tailor your swing based upon who you are as an individual and not just the way a PGA Tour swings.
