low back pain
lumbar spinal canal stenosis
Lumbar spinal disease is one of the“locomotive syndrome”. Most common disease for advanced people is lumbar spinal canal stenosis（LSCS）, on the other hand, most common disease for young adult people is lumbar disc herniation（LDH）. Both LSCS and LDH can cause low back pain and severe sciatica of lower extremities. Golf is one of the most favorite sports for any generation worldwide. Sometimes golf can cause low back pain, however we can prevent the injuries of lumbar from playing golf. The achievement of the special positioning based on“Tai chi chuan”, so called Taikyokuken, upward of the hip and knee joint flexed without lordosis of lumbar spine can induce best posture for golf.
We can enjoy playing golf with prevention of locomotive syndrome for whole life.
