Stats on lower back pain experienced by golfers

Because the golf swing involves an array of complex one-sided body movements, at some point virtually every golfer will experience an acute (active) injury or chronic (long-standing) back pain!


   – 53 % of male and 45% of females suffer low back pain

   – As many as 30% of Professional Golfers are playing injured.

   – 33% of golfers are over the age of 50.

   – Playing golf and another sport increases the chance of injury by 40%

Researchers have concluded that a majority of injuries affecting golfers originate in the low back (Lumbar Spine) and are related to improper Spine Mechanics which leads to improper swing mechanics due to/ and because of the nature of the swing. When a high-velocity rotary force couples with trunk side-bending (the crunch factor), the golfer’s spine and para-vertebral tissues undergo traumatic stress!

It’s no wonder low back pain (LBP) is the most common musculoskeletal complaint among golfers.
