There are many golfers who suffer from back pain, partly due to poor technique, but many who suffer think it is their golf when in reality it is their lifestyle. The muscles are already tight and so when you play golf your technique is thrown out before you even play a shot. In this sports therapy rehab exercise we are going to perform a simple but highly effective back stretch.

Again we urge caution that if you are suffering from severe neurological pain please visit or contact Therapyroom1.
