The number one physical complaint that golfers of all ages and levels commonly experience at some point throughout their playing career, is from pain and/or injury occurring at the lower back. And like most injuries, the site of pain is not usually the root of the problem- it's what's happening or isn't happening above and below that area that's causing you to suffer or end up suffering from pain and injury. โฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ The most notorious pain producers of the lower back come from a lack of mobility in these key areas..โฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ โ›ณ ๐˜๐˜ช๐˜ฑโฃโฃโฃ โ›ณ ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ค ๐˜š๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆโฃโฃโฃ โ›ณ ๐˜š๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณโฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ And weakness in this MAJOR muscle group...โฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ โ›ณ ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜Ž๐˜“๐˜œ๐˜›๐˜Œ๐˜šโฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ If a golfer presents with a lack of motion in any of the areas mentioned above, they will not be able to generate the amount of rotation it takes to achieve a good hip and shoulder turn. This will cause them to compensate by "borrowing" the extra rotation it needs from the lumbar spine (lower back) in order to complete the swing. However, the vertebrae in the lumbar spine were not built to tolerate a high capacity for rotational motion like that of the golf swing, and so by repeating this borrowed motion over and over again, you're placing yourself at risk for serious damage to the overall health of your spine.โฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ It's also important to note the significant role our glutes play in the swing. The goal of their function is to ensure a powerful and kinematically accurate sequencing of physical events by providing maximal stability and mobility at different points throughout the swing. โฃโฃโฃ โฃโฃโฃ When the glutes are strong, they will be able to initiate a stable weight transfer that prevents excessive lateral motion, like a sway or slide, which allows for end range rotation to take place during the backswing. On the downswing, the glutes serve to stabilize by decelerating and loading into the lead leg while allowing for a proper transfer of energy from the lower body to the upper body and down into the clubhead. So you can see how glute weakness can also contribute to a flawed and compensatory swing pattern at the cost of your physical health and wellbeing.โฃ โฃ โฃ๐˜๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ด๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ! ๐˜—๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ง ๐˜ข๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ!
