Read this month’s blog to learn golf tips from Casey, learn more about Bre, and find out what fun events are going on this month at Back in Motion!

Golfing Posture: Down to a Tee

Physical Therapist Casey Estes demonstrates poor posture vs. ideal posture.

For many years, golf has been a fun and enjoyable sport to play for people of all ages. Oh, who am I kidding? We wait all year long to get out on the course, just to get mad at ourselves for how poorly we are playing. But regardless of whether or not we play well, golf can cause back pain or aggravate existing back pain due to the forceful rotational nature of a golf swing.

In this blog, Physical Therapist Casey Estes will discuss ways you can adjust your swing to protect your lower back, and some exercises you can perform at home to help prevent lower back pain from your golf swing.
