Picture this: You’re standing on the lush green fairway of your favorite golf course in Saskatoon, ready to swing into action. Yet, as you wind up for that perfect shot, a twinge of discomfort shoots through your mid back, throwing off your balance and accuracy. Frustrating, isn’t it? Well, you’re not alone. Many golfers in Saskatoon and beyond grapple with mid back issues that hinder their performance on the course. But fear not, because at E3 Chiropractic + Wellness, we’re here to unlock the secrets of mid back mobility and elevate your golf game to new heights.

Understanding Mid Back Mobility:

The mid back, or thoracic spine, plays a pivotal role in your golf swing. It serves as the bridge between your lower body power and upper body control, facilitating the transfer of energy and rotational movement essential for a powerful and accurate swing. However, when mid back mobility is compromised, it can lead to a myriad of issues that negatively impact your game, including:

Restricted Rotation: Limited mobility in the mid back restricts your ability to rotate fully during your swing, resulting in a shorter backswing and decreased clubhead speed.

Loss of Power: A stiff mid back diminishes your ability to generate power from your torso, forcing you to rely more on your arms for propulsion, leading to decreased distance and control.

Increased Risk of Injury: Compensatory movements due to poor mid back mobility can place excessive strain on other areas of the body, such as the lower back and shoulders, increasing the risk of injury over time.

Common Causes of Mid Back Pain:

To address mid back issues effectively, it’s crucial to understand the underlying causes. Here are some common culprits contributing to mid back pain among golfers:

Poor Posture: Hours spent hunched over a desk or computer can result in rounded shoulders and a forward head posture, leading to stiffness and discomfort in the mid back.

Muscular Imbalances: Weakness in the muscles surrounding the mid back, such as the core and scapular stabilizers, can disrupt proper movement patterns and exacerbate pain.

Lack of Flexibility: Tightness in the muscles and fascia of the mid back, including the thoracic spine and surrounding tissues, can restrict mobility and predispose golfers to injury.
