Treatment for Golf Injuries in Bel Air MD

Treatment for Golf Injuries

Prevent – Proper technique along with physical fitness and training are the best defense against all injuries. Chiropractic can keep the body balanced and repair the damage done while playing. Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and physical therapy may be utilized for treating damaged muscles and joints.

  1. Lower inflammation with modalities like ice, ultrasound, and electric stim.
  2. Chiropractic adjusting to restore alignment and proper joint function  
  3. Physical therapy to include strengthening, range of motion, balance and flexibility; especially correcting any muscle strength imbalance.
  4. Custom foot orthotics should be used to support the body from the ground up. In fact, with proper, custom orthotics it has been shown that your drive will increase upwards of 20 feet due to increased proprioception.

With back injuries and back pain being some of the most common physical complaints in golf, it’s no wonder many pro-golfers travel with their very own private chiropractors. Some have even been adjusted on the green!

Golf Injuries and Chiropractic

Common complaints

  • Back pain
  • Knee problems  
  • Numbness & tingling
  • Muscle strain or sprain
  • Tendonitis
  • Tares of the ligaments, hamstring/quadriceps pulls, and specifically in female golfers because of the Q-Angle (women have hips).
  • Hip strain can result from swinging where the violent twisting motion of the torso with planted feet.
  • Other injuries that can affect the hip area include groin pulls, iliotibial band syndrome, and degenerative joint disease.
  • Higher up in the body, most injuries involving the arm and arm joints occur at the moment of club impact.

Fun fact:

Why do golfers get injured?

  • Golf requires forceful, repetitive movements
  • Even when done correctly, swinging can put you at risk for pain and injury.
  • Muscle weakness & poor posture increase injuries
  • Overuse is common in golf as you are swinging in the same motion many many times.   
  • Poorly fitted shoes do not support the back and spine


I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

Amy, 31

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

Pam, 19

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

Andrea, 28

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

S. age 60

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

Randy, 25

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.

I have been to too many chiropractors to count in five different states and this is the best chiropractor I have been to so far.
