Some people may find the list of possible golf-related ailments to be lengthy. Numerous of these conditions are related to some part of the swing, which entails striking a balance between an explosive forward motion, forceful muscular contractions, and the long lever arm impact produced by the golf club’s force.

Experts advise players to work with a golf professional to develop optimal swing mechanics in addition to staying in shape. Proper form helps to increase flexibility and agility while reducing stress on the body. An ineffective swing might make injuries more likely.

Some stretches to help prevent overuse injuries may include:
- Taking a brisk five-minute walk before playing
- Walking the first fairway
- Focusing on the lower back, hips, legs, and shoulders while stretching before and after each round
