difference in our lives.

Most Common Golf
Golf can be so much fun, but I
see many injuries that can be helped and prevented. The most common are
golfer's elbow, tendonitis and rotator cuff shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel,
neck stiffness, lower back pain and sciatica. What most people don't
realize is that PROPER
MOTION IS ESSENTIAL FOR PROPER FUNCTION.
When joint function is
impaired, there is a reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and
scar tissue. This can be caused by repetitive motions such as the golf
swing and improper biomechanics of your swing, and forgetting to stretch before
and after your game.
The traditional treatment of these problems involves
splinting the joint to reduce movement, pain medications, muscle relaxers,
steroid injections, and even surgery! What else can be done?
Today, a more common sense approach is being taken. Joint
mobilization, like chiropractic care for the spine, is being used in the care of
elbows, wrists, shoulders, knees, ankles, and other joints of the body.
Helping to restore normal range of motions to joints that have become "locked
up", "jammed", or injured, seems to improve blood circulation, reduce scar
tissue, and speed the healing process.
Dr. Maloof is uniquely trained to
detect and help restore proper joint function of the spine and the
extremities. Find out if you can be helped by arranging for a consultation
and thorough examination today! Stop spending your time taking medications
and waiting on the sidelines, it is time to get your health restored and get
back in the game!
Stretch Your Way To Better
Most golfers think that taking a
few practice swings is a good warm-up and they consider that their
stretching. What most people don't realize that if you don't stretch you
body before and after you play you have a greater chance of injury to neck,
shoulder, elbows, wrists, and lower back. You may not feel the
repercussions right away but it might affect you later in life. Here are a few
suggestions to do at home or on the golf
- Neck and shoulder
stretches: Gently turn your head from right to left five times, and
then drop your ear to your shoulders five times, make sure you breath and move
slowly and gently. Now shrug your shoulders and then pinch your shoulder
blades back together do this five times and then reverse the
- Hip Flexor: Stand with
your feet in a split position, right leg forward. Keep your upper body
tall and bend both knees slightly. Press your left hip forward until you
feel a stretch in the front of the hip and thigh. Hold. This will
increase hip and back flexibility.
- Slow Motion Golf Swing:
Using a golf club perform and slow motion golf swing. Move through the
setup, backswing and follow-through. Repeat five
- Back Rotation:
Hold your arms out and swing and twist your upper body from right to left
keeping your feet firmly on the ground. You can twist back and forth at
least ten times. This will really help warm up your back muscles and get
you ready for your
These are just a few tips on
stretching. Dr. Maloof has a handout of golf stretches. Please stop

"Only one golfer in a thousand grips the club lightly
includes knowing when to go for it and when to lay up."
"If you play poorly one
day, forget it. If you play poorly the next time out, review your
fundamentals of grip, stance, aim, and ball position."
