Did you know that chiropractic care can be helpful for nearly any life activity? This can include sedentary activities, or movement-based activities. Things that make up our daily experience, like sitting at a desk, running, walking, lifting objects, or even standing, can be benefited by chiropractic care. So it’s no surprise that chiropractic can be extremely helpful for athletic activities like sports—if you’ve been asking “can chiropractic help my golf game?” read on to learn the answer!

The experts at Advanced Spine and Posture of Henderson, Nevada are often asked this question. As visitors and residents frequent courses like the Desert Willow Golf Course, the Wildhorse Golf Club, the Reflection Bay Golf Club, the Rio Secco Golf Club, the Dragonridge Country Club, the SouthShore Country Club, and the Black Mountain Golf & Country Club, the people want to know—what can be done to make their bodies more attuned to their sport? This is not just so that their performance can improve, although that is an expected goal. As golf is often a recreational activity for individuals who are training to maintain a measure of activeness in their lives, avid players also want to know if they can help prepare and condition their bodies to thrive at the sport.

If you’re an avid golfer and have either noticed a decline in your golf game, or simply want to boost your game as much as possible, then chiropractic care may be exactly what you’re looking for. Advanced Spine and Posture is pleased to offer golf chiropractic in Henderson to anyone who wants to level up on the green.

Range of Motion

Golfers know that there is one major component of the game that makes all the difference—your golf swing. The golf swing is what makes or breaks the game, and as golfers know, the best swings are supported by a wide range of motion.

The first component of a swing is the backswing, and an ideal backswing requires a complete range of motion to put the club in the correct position and angle. Every swing style requires a rotation of the torso and the hips, which takes flexibility and mobility. The arms, elbows, shoulders, hips, and torso need to be limber and lubricated to produce the optimal swing.

If a golfer doesn’t have full range of motion, their swing can suffer. Impaired range of motion can cause the ball to move further right or left than intended, tank your distance objective, and poorly affect your desired arc.

Fortunately, chiropractic is a powerful method of correcting and improving range of motion. Chiropractic addresses all the components of the body that are connected to the swing—this includes the joints, nerves, and muscles.


Another important component of the swing is balance. The balance of the body is imperative to producing a proper swing. Even if the body is limber and agile, without the appropriate balance, the swing is going to be off by a few (or several) degrees. If the accuracy of the swing isn’t impaired, then usually some part of the body is compensating—and that can create its own kind of strain and distress.

If your body is balanced during a swing, the club head can find the ball much more easily, delivering proper accuracy and strength. This will enhance the speed of your swing, your accuracy, and the consistency of your game. While most people can get a great swing at least a couple of times in their game, balance is required to make that swing replicable.

Chiropractic is extremely beneficial to your swing because it can help to improve your posture and your balance. Posture and balance are interconnected, and corrective chiropractic care in Henderson, NV can make a substantial difference in your gameplay.

If you correct your skeletal structure and joint alignment, you can experience major improvements in your posture and balance. This will help you to plant your feet more effectively, replicate your best swings better, and experience markedly enhanced accuracy and strength.


Once you’ve corrected the balance and range of motion in your body, this will allow much more strength to be utilized by your torso and extremities. While muscles play a large role in physical strength, nerves do as well—and nerves that are inflamed or irritated from misalignment are likely to inhibit the amount of strength and energy that you can use in your muscles.

The nerve energy that allows you to use your full muscle capacity relies on aligned posture and low to no inflammation of the nerves. Not only do these factors create a more comfortable playing experience, but they also increase the breadth of muscle strength that you have available to you.

Chiropractic can help to improve that strength and the effectiveness of your muscles by increasing your nerve energy flow, improving your circulation, and amplifying the connection between your nerves and muscles.

Distance and Accuracy

After holistically and globally amplifying the function of your entire body, you will begin to see marked improvement in your golf game—even if you already play a great one. One of the things you may notice improving are the distance and accuracy achieved by your swings. This is a natural result of the overall improvement in your body’s neuromusculoskeletal system, and is likely to positively impact many of your other day-to-day activities, including those that are sedentary.
