The game of golf is unique in that it can be both a leisurely sport and a competitive sport depending on how it’s played and who plays it. Sure, some older active adults enjoy golf for its easygoing nature, but youth and college athletes can also turn up the dial and make it pretty intense. 

After all, just look at Tiger Woods. This pro golfer is one of the most physically fit athletes out there. Despite his professionalism and tip-top conditioning, even Tiger Woods gets injured. Golf injuries are somewhat common in avid golfers. Some of the most frequently seen golf injuries include:

  • Meniscus tears
  • Hip labral tears
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Herniated discs
  • Golfers’ elbow
  • Tennis elbow 
  • …and more

Youth and college golfers may think they’re immune to injuries, but every athlete is prone to getting injured if they’re serious enough about the sport and play it on a regular basis. Our goal here at Next Level Physio is to keep golfers hitting those hole-in-ones injury-free. We’re here to work with you to perfect your swing, keep your muscles strong, and help you rehabilitate a golf injury in the event that you get one.
