Sometimes the pain makes quitting unavoidable. If you play golf, then you know that hip mobility is an important part of your swing. This can make pain in many areas extra troublesome, potentially causing you to give up the one and only sport you love.

The art of being a top golfer includes correct alignment of the pelvis, shoulders and neck in order to achieve the magic swing that takes them to the pinnacle of their class. The swing of a golfer is actually pelvic rotation which involves the lumbar spine, the sacrum and, most importantly, the sacroiliac joint.
The shoulders also swing around when the golfer rotates the pelvis, one shoulder rotating backwards with the hip and the other shoulder rotating forward in the opposite direction. At the same time, the shoulder blades, or scapulae, move also and the head turns placing pressure on the neck or cervical spine.
Many things can affect the game of golf and all of them need to be looked at carefully and treatment protocol adjusted where needed for optimal performance.
