Chiropractic care has been beneficial in improving a person’s health and well-being. However, being considered as an alternative form of medicine, it has stigmas and myths that revolve and evolve around chiropractic care.
Tiger Woods, golfing superstar, said, “Being a chiropractor patient has helped me immensely.” (Tiger Woods rode on the chiropractic centennial celebration float in the Rose Parade, 1995).
Top golfers need to take care of a lot of things which includes proper alignment of the shoulders, pelvis, and neck so that they can get the right swing which makes them the golfer they are. The swing of a golfer involves the pelvic rotation. The pelvic rotation includes the sacrum, the lumbar spine and the sacroiliac joint.

Some people swear by chiropractic care for back pain. Chiropractors treat injuries without prescription medication or surgery. Chiropractic care may help you to feel less pain. Some chiropractors offer treatments that contribute to restoring damaged discs in the spine.
Back pain can be the result of injury to various structures in the back such as muscles, ligaments, bones, discs or joints. Some problems are serious depending on what structures are involved. For example, a muscle strain is not usually as severe as a ruptured disc. A muscle sprain may completely heal and be temporary while a ruptured disc can result in chronic pain that lasts for years.
