Golf Injury Clinic
Sports Injury Clinic
Golf is enjoyed by almost 4 million people in the UK alone and in general, is considered a safe sport with a low risk of injury. However, a report carried out by United States of America National Center for Health Statistics in 2016 revealed that golf is no longer as low risk as originally thought and instead the sport caused a higher number of recreational injuries than rugby, hockey and even boxing.
Furthermore, research by the British Journal of Sports Medicine revealed that 15.8% to 40.9% of amateur golfers suffer an injury on an annual basis, with lower back ailments being the main injury culprits.
Like any sport, minimising the risk of injury is paramount. Not only can an injury impact performance on the course, but it can also play a significant role in affecting day to day life if left untreated.
