Golf is a game of skill and precision, but it can also take a toll on your body. 
 
Here are the top 5 injuries golfers face and how to prevent them... 
 
Lower back pain plagues many due to the repetitive twisting motion. 
Golfer's elbow, an inflammation of the tendons in the forearm, can be excruciating. 
Shoulder injuries often occur from the repetitive swinging motion. 
Knee injuries are common, particularly among older golfers. 
Wrist injuries due to the impact of hitting the ball and ground. 
 

Effective Exercises for Golf Injuries 

5 key things to do for golfers to prevent injuries and help your game. 
 
Core Strengthening Exercises: A strong core stabilizes your body during the golf swing, reducing the risk of lower back injuries. Incorporate exercises like planks, Russian twists, and bird dogs into your routine. 
Rotator Cuff Exercises: Strengthening the muscles around your shoulders can prevent injuries and improve your swing. Try exercises like shoulder external rotations with resistance bands or dumbbells. 
Hip Flexor and Glute Strengthening: Strong hips and glutes help generate power and stability in your swing while protecting your lower back. Squats, lunges, and hip bridges are excellent exercises to include. 
Flexibility Exercises: Maintain flexibility in your muscles and joints to improve your range of motion and prevent injuries. Focus on regularly stretching your hamstrings, hip flexors, shoulders and thoracic spine. 
Balance and Stability Training: Enhance your balance and stability to maintain control throughout your swing and prevent falls or missteps. Exercises such as single-leg squats, balance boards, and stability ball exercises are beneficial for golfers. 
 
Incorporating these exercises into your fitness routine can help improve your performance on the course while reducing the risk of common golf-related injuries.
