A chiropractor for manipulation, a dietitian for a diet plan , a massage therapist for a massage. I try to provide the right treatment depending on the problem . If the client needs nutritional advice , I give it . If the client needs information on exercises or on how to improve his performance , I provide the information .

The pain often comes from injuries during exertion (for example, hitting the root of a tree when swinging) . However, other pain is caused by repetitive movements. . This is a subtle pain that is developed by muscle and / or tendon and / or ligament and / or joint fatigue. It often appears for no apparent reason during the season and sometimes it persists for several years. Due to this fatigue, the athlete gets hurt more easily during exertion.

Golfer’s pains are especially :

  • Lower Back
