Tilly produced a scientific paper on golfing injuries for her Masters in Osteopathy, the paper highlighted the points below:
Poor swing dynamics and injury
Golfers can sustain a number of varied injuries, the most common being to the lower back. These injuries are predominantly caused by an incorrect swing.
It is thought that the incidence of injuries could be reduced if an adequate regime prior to play was adopted and if players avoided carrying or pulling their bags awkwardly.
The golfer must learn to either prevent or manage their injury.
One preventative method is in the correction of poor swing mechanics, thus reducing unnecessary strain to vulnerable parts of the body. However, you may find that pain and stiffness in your joints will prevent you from achieving an effective swing.
