Common Types of Golf Injuries


How to Prevent Golf Injuries

Like most sports, preventing golf injuries is all about first warming up and then performing stretches before and after heading out for your tee time. Here are a few warm up exercises and stretches we recommend to minimize the risk of sustaining a golf injury.

  • Jog in place
  • Butt kickers and high knee exercises
  • Side steps
  • Hamstring (straight leg) kicks
  • Lunges
  • Arm circles and swings
  • Wall push-ups and sumo (toes out) squats
  • Wrist curls and stretches
  • Trunk rotations- on back, knees bent let knees drop to each side gently
  • Generally stretch tight muscles after activity


When Should I See a Pain Doctor for My Golf Injury?

If your pain becomes severe or you suspect a fracture, it’s always best to see a doctor. Likewise, if pain from a golf injury persists after a few days or weeks, please don’t hesitate to reach out. 

Golf is as synonymous with Scottsdale as our warm weather and shopping. It’s loved by many and great way to stay in shape, but injuries can be common and if left untreated result in chronic pain.

Do your warm-ups before and stretches afterwards. Then get treatment, like we have here at LaserTech, to resolve any damage, if you want to do what you can to keep swinging as long as possible.
