The acclaimed author of Back Rxand Arthritis Rx(more than 50,000 combined copies in print) returns with the first book fully devoted to improving your golf game and reducing pain.Many recreational and professional golfers suffer from some form of lower back pain. Conventional wisdom suggests that the violent, twisting nature of the golf swing, which puts undue stress on the spine, is the sole culprit. But research conducted by sports-medicine specialist Vijay Vad, M.D., with PGA Tour pros, recently published in the prestigious American Journal of Sports Medicine, reveals that the swing is only one of several factors. Applying Dr. Vads winning combination of mind/body wisdom and medical expertise to the game of golf, Golf Rxshares his cutting-edge findings and addresses such topics as: The proper body mechanics for a stable golf swing Power tips to improve driving Eighteen essential stretches for eighteen holes Five-minute warm-up and cool-down routines Keeping an aging body in great shape Common golf injuriesand how to resume activity The Golf Rx exercise series Combining the best of Pilates, golf-specific conditioning, and physical therapy, Dr. Vads easy to follow exercise program contains three series that will speed recovery from the most common golfers injuries, help reduce future injuries, and enhance performance by building swing specific flexibility, strength, stamina, and balance.
