Increase your Golf Swing!

18 Jul

Study shows Chiropractic care can improve your golf swing better than stretching.  A recent study in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine evaluated the benefits of chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulative therapy) and golf performance.  Half of the participants received Chiropractic adjustments to dysfunctional spinal segments and as a result, they experienced improvements in full-swing performance.  Study participants that did not receive Chiropractic care displayed zero improvement.

Dysfunctional or subluxated spinal segments that are not corrected will continue inhibit sport performance as well as overall bodily function.
