    Posted: 24 February 2009 at 2:24pm
I was wondering if any of you have had back surgery? I had a microdiscectomy to repair my L3-L4 disc last May.  I've been given clearance to golf but I am worried I might do something.  I still have "sensations" in the leg and groin occassionally which makes it offputting to really want to swing.
 
I started using the rotary swing a few years a go and it seems that it would probably be the least harmful to the back.
 
I would love to hear feedback.
 
Thanks,
 
Fred

I would suggest you have a conversation with Mike Romatowski, TPI Certified Trainer.  He knows a lot about backs and preparation to swing a golf club again.  I know he has helped several guys who frequent the Speed Forum.
 
 
Also check out the book, Pain Free, by Pete Egoscue.
 
I hope this helps.

I'm starting to have more and more stiffness in my joints (no chronic pain yet) due to my desk job and sedentary behavior.  I read the book (Pain Free) and have been doing the exercises.  So far so good.  Example: I played Friday. After finishing the round my hip sockets were sore.  I did the hip exercises, my pain went away. I hope the preventative maintenance program will have long term significance.

I'm not sure how I found this post.  It was written before I joined these forums.  Regardless, thanks for the book reference.

I have impingement in BOTH hips with it also causing a tear in the labrum of my right hip. I read the book pain free as well which lead me to look for alternatives to surgery. What I found in my search was a technique called Rolfing http://www.rolf.org/ it works the same way Egoscues method just much faster. With the Egoscue you align your body using the exercises and with Rolfing somoeone else does it for you through myofascial release and it is accomplished in 10 sessions. I have done 2 sessions already and I can tell you results have been immediate. After the first session I felt like I have been walking around with "brooklyn posture" like I was sticking my chest way out but my chest has just been released and my shoulders are no longer rounded and they feel like they have been pulled back about 3 inches it is FANTASTIC! Had my 2nd session the other day and I am now standing on my whole foot for the first time that I can remember. Most of us favor the left or right side of the foot when we walk but now I use the whole foot....makes my foot feel like it was 12 inches wide at first
 
I went with Rolfing b/c I called and spoke with a therapist at an Egoscue clinic and ask her if she had heard of Rolfing and she said yes and the only difference is that with Egoscue you do the alignment through exercises and it takes 12-18 months of religiously doing it.  So b/c I was set to have surgery in December I went with Rolfing because I can complete that in 10 weeks. Check it out....I can honestly say it is incredible!
