Chi­ro­prac­tors Gives Hands to Pro Golfers

From the March 12, 2003 TCPalm​.com new web­site comes a short fea­ture story on chi­ro­prac­tic care for pro­fes­sional golfers. Accord­ing to the story there are cur­rently 10 chi­ro­prac­tors who take turns staffing the med­ical teams of the Pro­fes­sional Golfers Asso­ci­a­tion (PGA). Dur­ing a tour­na­ment, the staff chi­ro­prac­tor will often work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and care for between 25 to 40 golfers each day.

Dr. David Kas­say is one of the chi­ro­prac­tors on the tour. He com­mented, “Each day, it’s not unusual for a third of them (golfers) to seek some kind of med­ical atten­tion. Over the course of a tour­na­ment, prob­a­bly 80 per­cent of the play­ers come by.” The med­ical teams and chi­ro­prac­tors are housed in large, expand­able trail­ers that have full care facil­i­ties and exer­cise equip­ment. They also have tele­vi­sions with both net­work and closed-​circuit tour­na­ment coverage.

Dr. Kas­say noted where the golfers expe­ri­ence most of their prob­lems dur­ing a tour­na­ment, “Most are in the neck, the upper and lower back, shoul­ders, elbows and wrists; areas involved in the golf swing. These guys are hit­ting a lot of golf balls through the day, not just in the tour­na­ment but in prac­tice, too. All that rep­e­ti­tion is demand­ing on the body. If they’re not in good shape, they’ll be hurting”
