Health Tips for Golfers

Many avid golfers contort their bodies into oddly twisted postures, generating a great deal of torque. Couple this motion with a bent-over stance, repeat 120 times over three or four hours, add the fatigue that comes with several miles of walking, and you’ve got a good workout—and a recipe for potential lower-back trouble. As America’s love affair with the game continues to grow, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has advice on how to take a proactive approach that will prepare your body for many years of pain-free play.

Using Technology Safely

Mobile devices such as cell phones, iPads, laptops and electronic readers have made our lives more convenient. In today’s society, many people fear giving up their cell phones even for a few hours. While this makes it easier to accomplish tasks without being tethered to an office, this has also increased the amount of time we spend using these devices, which can adversely affect our health.
