Teeing Off On Back Pain - An Event for Golfers to Improve Their Game and Avoid Injury


Teeing Off On Back Pain

Spine Specialist and Golf Experts Organize Seminar

To Take Aim at Back and Neck Pain
For most of the 25 million golfers in America, playing 18 holes is probably one of the most relaxing ways to spend a day.   However, for many of those with chronic back and neck pain, it not only hinders their ability to enjoy the game but may prevent them from playing altogether.  The key for most golfers is learning how to avoid this pain without compromising the power and accuracy of their swing.  


Now, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Dante Implicito has teamed up with Greenhouse Golf in Waldwick, NJ and PGA Tour Fitness Pro Scott Riehl for a seminar to help golfers improve their swing and avoid injury.  



 The intention of this NO COST seminar is to help golfers with back or neck pain alleviate their pain without compromising the power or accuracy of their golf game.  Also, the professionals will teach golfers how to avoid golf mechanics that can lead to spine injuries.  This initiative has been featured on News 12 New Jersey, Fios 1 News and PGA Tour SiriusXM Radio.


Using Greenhouse Golf's state of the art swing analysis technology attendees can watch every biomechanical movement in their swing and have it analyzed by a spinal expert, Dr. Dante Implicito, and PGA Tour Fitness Pro, Scott Riehl.  This technology uses real time 3D motion capture to highlight balance issues, posture, hip alignment and club speed.  Each attendee will be given a one on one session with the experts.
