Common Golf Injuries

Even though golf is a non-contact support, injuries can still happen. Allegheny General Hospital orthopaedic surgeons Dennis Phillips, MD and Gregory Altman, MD discuss common golf injuries. A golf swing gives rotation around your lumbar spine, which can cause muscle strains and herniated discs. Injuries due to overuse, such as tendonitis and rotator cuff problems, are also common.
