In the 80 percent of what, you might ask?
Back pain and general back stiffness is the number one complaint from golfers. Over 80% of golfers will suffer with back pain at some point and up to 50% will have an injury and or recurring back pain related to golf.
If you've ever had back pain, we don't need to tell you how limiting it is, not only on the course but off as well. It's pretty much impossible to make a good free turn and hit the ball solidly and accurately with distance when suffering with back pain.
For golfers, lower back pain is often the result of tight hips and tight upper back or thoracic spine (T-Spine). Your lower back has to then compensate while trying to swing the club. Injury and stiffness will occur during and after your round of golf.
Adding to the back pain is the resulting frustration from inconsistent swings, poor contact, loss of distance and lousy golf!
