Golf is a truly wonderful game as you already know but if you suffer from back pain it can make even looking at your clubs almost unbearable.
So today, I’d like to end the confusion regarding golf back pain with a question I recently received:
“I’ve spent hundreds of dollars trying to get rid of my golf back pain over the past few years. I’ve wasted my money on all kinds of gadgets, doctor visits, bulky equipment and pain pills.
I’m about to throw in the towel. My doctors say I just need a few more visits, so I go a few more times. The pain continues. I buy a machine online which says my pain will go away after using it. The pain continues. Everything I try, the pain continues.
I’m desperate, and hoping you have some kind of resource you can point me to that will help me be able to get out there and swing my clubs again without pain.”
Thanks for the question. And thankfully I think I can help!
There’s a book which was written by a great guy I know – Jesse Cannone. He’s the owner of the Healthy Back Institute and is the ONLY guy I trust when it comes to getting rid of any pain I’m having, including golf back pain. Best part is – he’s actually giving his book away for FREE right now on his website
Here’s why I love his book. Most people try to sell you whatever their latest gadget or widget claims to help. Most doctors try to help, but as you’ve probably noticed… only give you temporary relief.
In Jesse’s book, he explains WHY that is. Now I’m not the back pain expert like he is, so here’s the short version. Pain develops in your body through several sources. Some of those sources include the diet you’re eating, your mental health, how much stress you’re under, and other lifestyle factors.
But the one thing most people don’t understand is how much the muscle imbalances in your body create the pain you’re feeling. This is something you’ve probably never heard, but Jesse explains it in his book. And hey… if nothing else is working… why not give the book a read? It’s pretty short, and very readable. It only took me a few hours to finish it and it absolutely changed my life.
Here are a few more reasons I LOVED his book.
#1 – Because his philosophy is based on a balanced approach, if you follow his advice you’ll also notice that losing weight becomes much easier, you’ll be happier, and even have more energy.
#2 – I don’t know about you, but I hate reading boring books that seem to go on forever. I was shocked at how fast and easy I was able to read Jesse’s book, because it was written in a very reader-friendly style.
#3 – At the end of the book, Jesse actually gives you his suggestion for which back pain treatment will work best for you, depending on the condition you’re suffering from. This section in itself is worth its weight in gold!
So if you have ever suffered from back pain that is holding you back from playing better golf, or are currently dealing with it, I highly recommend
you grab a copy of his book now – and you can’t beat the price because it’s FREE!
