Golf has seen a significant surge in popularity among all genders and age groups, both beginner and pro levels. Golf might look like an easy game to play, just to hit a stationary object with a club into a relatively wide open space. In fact, golf requires a lot of practice and effort as well as great skills and perseverance to excel at it.

Although golf is perceived as being a low-risk sport when it comes to injuries since direct contact is not required, many young golfers, especially those who lack proper technique, suffer from acute or overuse injuries. Since the explosive nature of the swing can put a tremendous amount of stress on the body, a majority of professional golfers have experienced injuries at one time or another in their careers. A number of factors have contributed to common golf swing injuries. Approximately 80 % of all reported golf injuries are caused by overuse or over-practice. The main causes of these injuries include lack of flexibility, poor conditioning, excessive play or practice, poor swing mechanics, ground impact forces and intermittent play. While another 20% of golf injuries are induced by traumatic force and accidents. Acute injuries are usually the result of a single, traumatic episode such as hitting the ground of a submerged tree root in a sand trap. Overuse injuries are more subtle and usually occur over time. These injuries will more often stem from the stress that the golfer puts on the back and shoulders when swinging. The three most commonly injured areas of the body are the back, shoulder and elbow. These conditions should be treated with rest, a good stretching/warm-up program and advanced technology in sport medicine.
