To play golf well, a healthy full-functioning body is a necessity since injuries hurt performance. The most common injuries golfers experience are low back, wrist, elbow, and shoulder pain.

Everyone has had the experience of crossing your legs and then having one of them go numb. We usually refer to the sensation we have as 'gone to sleep'. Sometimes that tingling sensation appears for no apparent reason. This is often traced to nerve compression. Nerve compression is often caused by misalignments of the spinal bones. Until this is corrected, the condition will only continue and possibly worsen with time.
Tennis elbow is the common name given to pain originating on the outside or lateral side of the elbow. This condition arises from an irritation or inflammation of the tendons of one or several forearm muscles at their attachment to the bony protuberance close to the elbow joint, known as the lateral epicondyle. Therefore the medical term for this condition is lateral epicondylitis, meaning an inflammation of the epicondyle. If the condition is located on the inside or medial side of the elbow it is often referred as Golfer's Elbow or medial epicondylitis. This, however, is not as prevalent as lateral epicondylitis.
There are a number of contributing factors to excessive tiredness. Not receiving the proper rest needed is the most easily understood reason for tiredness.

Dizziness is not a disease, it is an indication that there is something wrong somewhere else in your body. The dizzy spells are your body's warning that something is interfering with the proper function of the body's organs, nerves, glands, or muscles. Chiropractors have long suspected a relationship between upper neck spinal bone misalignments and vertigo.
