Elbow Pain

Posted by on Nov 21, 2013 in Blog, Monthly Topics | 0 comments

Tennis Elbow and Golf I believe that if you have played golf long enough, and have hit your fair share of golf balls on the driving range, elbow pain (or what is commonly known as Tennis Elbow) can happen. For right-handed golfers, the right elbow is affected the most. This is opposite for the lefties.   About 10 years ago, I developed a severe case of Tennis Elbow.  It was very painful and caused issues when I attempted to drive the golf ball.  I never took any pain...

Hip Pain and Golf     I want my readers and students to know that even though I have been involved in golf, martial arts, and training for over 30 years, that absolutely does not mean that I am not constantly learning something new.  Since starting Black Belt Golf my philosophy has always been that I am a student first.  Here is a perfect example of this.   Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with a member at Mission Hills Country Club, where I...

Pain on the Golf Course

Pain on the Golf Course What happens if you start developing pain on the golf course? This is something that can happen a lot with golfers.  It happened to me over the summer in a golf tournament.  It was the second shot of the first round and I came out of the shot and wrenched my neck.  I immediately developed pain on the left side of my neck.  The first thing I started doing, while walking in between my shots, was an exercise to relieve the pain in that area and then a...

Foot Pain and Golf     As a golfer, you may develop pain in your feet at one time or another. Pain develops because you are on your feet a lot when playing or practicing. I believe the key question for my students is not whether you have foot pain, but how can we manage, decrease, or get rid of the pain in a natural way?  If you have decided to be a student of Black Belt Golf, you will soon find out that this program is all about healing the body in the most...

Back Pain and Golfers

Since it is Pain Free Golf Month – I have to talk about back pain.  What causes most golfers back pain?  Why does back pain occur so often in the avid golfer?  Why does it happen more often as we get older?     Throughout this month, I want you to ask yourself if you can honestly say that you are in decent shape to play golf.  Most golfers think that if they can swing the golf club, they are in good enough shape.  Well, here is another question, can you walk...

Pain Free Golf: Overview

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Blog, Monthly Topics | 0 comments

Pain Free Golf   An incident that happened to me toward the end of October made me think of the idea for this month.  One evening when I arrived at my house, I was too tired (okay, and a little too lazy) to put my belt in its proper place. Therefore, it ended up on the floor near the bottom of my staircase. The next day, I was walking down the stairs and as I took the last step, instead of landing on the floor, I stepped on the belt.   Unfortunately, the belt...
