Course 2:

The Biomechanics of Golfing Injuries I

This course is focused on the biomechanics of the most prevalent golfing injury; this being Lower Back Pain. We will highlight the key movements in the golf swing that can increase injury risk and identify posture/swing changes that could potentially mitigate this risk. Furthermore, we will also explain why certain movements can cause damage to the lower back, looking at the anatomy of the spine to help with this explanation.​
