Golf can be hard on your back. Especially at the end of the 18th hole.
Fatigue breaks down our form, and when our form is compromised, it often leads to pressure on the joints and strain on the muscles.

According to a peer-reviewed article four keys to preventing back pain are warm-up, swing, bio-mechanics, and carrying the golf bag. The most common back pain is around the Low back, just above the hips at L5-S1. This is due to the rotational force of the swing. Back pain isn’t just for “older” golfers, either! Golfers in their 30’s and 40’s often try too hard to add force to the swing, compounding the strain on back muscles.
Massage therapy can gently unwind all that torque on the low back and hip muscles. Muscle tension and pain are often greatly relieved after a session with a qualified Sports Massage Therapist. The muscles of the legs hold so much stiffness which always leads to an imperfect swing. Give your body what it needs to be relaxed and loose so you can hit the ball far and accurately!
