A new study reveals that professional golf causes serious back problems

As golf has evolved over the last two decades, golfers’ swing has become more powerful, which has led to a higher incidence of early lumbar degeneration, according to a new study published today.

The work, published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, responds to the causes of the most common injury that now affects golfers, something that did not happen in the past.

“Among professional and amateur golfers, back disorders are still the most common injury, and comprise 55% and 35% of the injuries in these groups, respectively,” according to the research by Corey Walker, Juan Uribe. and Randall Porter, of the Neurological Institute of Barrow (Arizona).

The authors also point out that modern professional golfers are experiencing back problems at much younger ages than the general population due to the potentiation of their swing, which generates repetitive traumatic disc disease.
