Hi fellow refugees, I’m hoping you can provide some insight into experiences you have had when it comes to golf and chiropractic care-
During a round five months ago, I pinched a nerve in my back trying to murder it on the 14th tee. I stupidly popped an Aleve and finished my round the best I could (I had a good score going). Over the next couple of days I had excruciating lower-back and hip pain. LONG story short I have been having lower-back and hip pain ever since. I have been seeing a physical therapist for about three months and while my symptoms have basically moved from “very painful” to “mostly uncomfortable,” I feel like I have plateaued in the last six weeks and am no closer to getting back out on the course.
I am now considering seeking a referral to a sports med specialist or a spine clinic, but I have numerous friends and coworkers telling me I’m crazy for not going to a chiropractor. I’ve always been wary of chiropractic care; I can’t get the idea of paralysis-by-adjustment out of my head. I’m curious if anyone has tips or recommendations based on their own experiences with chiropractors? Considering we are all avid golfers, I know I’m not the only one who has struggled with back pain.
Thanks for taking the time to respond if this topic strikes a chord with you, this is such an awesome community. Cheers!
