Description

Golf is a sport that is growing in popularity not only in the U.S, but all over the world. Golfers today are much more fit and much stronger than they were in the 1900s. The golf swing has grown into a very powerful motion, creating club head speeds of up to 125 mph. In order to create these speeds, the body must go through significant stress to generate enough power to launch the ball over 300 yards. This research will look into muscle activity during the golf swing and how to prevent injury in the lumbar region of the back. Many professional golfers have suffered from lower back pain either during their professional careers or after they have retired. This research will be focused on the muscle activity in the thoracic and lumbar regions of the back as well as the abdominal muscles that are used to create this complex movement.
