I'm Always Injured

It seems like this past year or so I'm always having neck or shoulder problems. Just a few months ago, I was dealing with a scapula or trapezius injury on my right side that shut down my workouts for almost a month. Now I have a minor injury on my left side from last week. I felt a tweak in my neck on a swing when it happened but didn't think anything of it because that kind of happens once in a while, but there's a tightness there I haven't been able to shake and a noticeable weakness when I'm

A Journey of a Thousand Miles

I got back into working out towards the beginning of the year. I used to lift back when I was a teenager so I have a solid background and it turns out I was in decent shape because of work. I'm paying a lot of attention to doing things with proper form even if it means I'm using lighter weight, because building the proper foundation is important to me as a more mature person, but also because I'm significantly more prone to injury these days than when I was a teenager.

    • Want to say this was very helpful!  I got the laser and worked with it to determine my aim issues and find out I'm seeing everything as left when it's actually right.  I also realize I'm a left eye dominant right hand putter and go out and buy a no offset putter and change my setup to make sure the putter is pointed to where I think it is.   Go out and play Saturday and sure enough my putting is way more accurate than its ever been!
    • Tier 1: Grip the club properly Tricky one. I struggled with my grip until I adopted a reverse overlap with all of the fingers on my right/lower hand on the grip. Before I had the right pinky overlap, now its the left index finger. Much easier to get the grip in the base of the fingers and get the knuckles right. Tier 2: Learn what "start line" and curve your ball has on any given shot. I think I know what this means... I learned to hit a natural hook/draw. Aim slight
    • My father in law gave me his machine that pumps cold water around his knee from a previous knee replacement. That does the trick quite nicely.
    • Good luck and be diligent with the PT. And ice is your friend. Even if you do stuff around the house, a little ice time will speed recovery.
    • Quick update... I had a cortisone shot in my knee three weeks ago. Hurt like hell for a while, but definitely helped once it soaked in. I started PT last week and it seems be helping. I have not tried swinging a club yet, but then again, I don't need to for quite some time. Stupid winter. 😒
