Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists

No Mulligan Needed.

Just wanted to let you know my shoulder is great! I played golf twice a week through the spring, summer and fall with no problems whatsoever. Then the week before Thanksgiving I played in the 26TH Annual Colonel’s Pre-Thanksgiving Golf Outing in Myrtle Beach. I played 7 rounds in 7 days again, no problems at all. I couldn’t have done it without you and your team, but mostly you. Thanks again.

Importance of stretching to avoid injury

Stretching and taking the time to warm up properly before getting on the field is of vital importance for any golfer, regardless of skill level. Prior to playing, consider taking a brisk walk, stretching your hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, shoulders, back, and pelvis and going for some soft practice swings to get your prepared for the game ahead. Taking preventative measures and striving to keep a consistent, proper form while golfing can be the difference between staying on the field and enjoying the game or suffering an injury that sets you back and causes you to seek treatment and sit out the game while you recover.

“Success in this game of golf depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.” - ARNOLD PALMER
