Symptoms of golf back pain
The most common symptom of golf lower back injury includes:
- Lower back discomfort with radiation into the leg.
- Numbness and tingling sound.

The major risk factor in golf is poor flexibility. Surveys have proved that 80% of golfers warm-up for less than 10 minutes. Proper warm up increases the body’s flexibility, which in turn ensures the right golf swings. The repetitive nature of the sport during a play causes continuous strain on already injured muscles.
