Amateur and professional golfers should be aware of how regular chiropractic care can address golfing injuries at their source and prevent future injury. Golfing injuries and repetitive stress issues can interfere with performance and daily activities. A variety of stretches and exercises can help amateur and pro golfers feel better and improve their performance. Dr. Todd Askenas, DC, a member of the PGA medical staff since 2012, understands the special needs of the golfer. Patients may reduce their need for pain medications with the use of a chiropractic pain management program for golf-related injuries.

Dr. Todd Askenas, DC offers patients natural ways to support their body’s health and continue to participate in the game. Dr. Askenas has been serving patients for over 25 years. He received his doctorate from the National College of Chiropractic in 1991. His various certifications include that of becoming a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Fitness Trainer and Fitness Instructor as well as receiving his certification in Evaluations and Management of Golf Injuries. He has served professional athletes as a chiropractor for the Wellness Team for the US Open Golf Championships and a PGA medical staff member. Dr. Askenas is active in the community as a coach and coordinator of the annual Blanket Drive.

He offers seminars and workshops to educate individuals on stretching and strengthening, safe lifting techniques, and more.

Professional and amateur athletes should take measures to continue to enjoy golfing and prevent injury. The Golf Fitness Evaluation is the first step to take to assess balance, strength, posture, flexibility, and motion. An experienced chiropractor identifies physical limitations and deficits and how such issues may impair performance. Patients then begin on a customized golf-specific corrective exercise and conditioning program to support the specific needs of a patient’s body and improve their game. Chiropractic helps golfers avoid injuries, reduce pain, speed recovery, and increase mobility.

“Chiropractic care is used to address biomechanical imbalances and help with swing and stability,” said Dr. Todd Askenas, DC. “As an experienced chiropractor specializing in the needs of golfers, I understand the potential injuries that may occur and work to improve strength and flexibility in amateur and professional golfers. There is no reason not to avail oneself of the benefits of regular chiropractic care and enjoy the game this spring.”
