However, it does still put strain on the body, especially the joints in your knees, wrists, elbows and shoulders, each time you swing the club.

It’s easy for golfers to injure their rotator cuff muscles which surround the ball and socket shoulder joint. Tendons and muscles tear up if you’re continuously hammering them whilst swinging strokes. Golf can cause rotator cuff injuries leaving your shoulder sore and affecting your performance. To avoid or treat shoulder injuries, we recommend OmoTrain shoulder brace which supports and stabilizes the rotator cuff muscles while maintaining the natural movement of the shoulder. The medical-grade compression activates the muscles by increasing the blood flow, allowing more oxygen to reach the shoulder area. This accelerates muscle regeneration and provides targeted pain relief.
