How can the K-Vest help you avoid lower back pain?

Today I thought I would write about the link between poor golf swing mechanics and lower back pain. A recent study of 31,000 golfers found that 28.1% of them had to deal with lower back pain after every round.  When I first saw this number I found it quite alarming that such I high number of golfers are swinging the club in a way that is causing them to suffer pain.

In this article I am going to focus on the swing fault that most commonly cause lower back pain – Reverse Spine Angle (RSA). This can be defined as any upper body backward bend (towards the target) during the backswing. This puts excessive extension into the spine at the top of the backswing, which causes the pain.

Below you will see a before/after picture of Michael, one of my students. He also suffers from lower back pain so it is a priority of ours to eliminate his RSA. As you can see in the K-Vest date below, his upper body bend at the top of the swing was -7 degrees (7 degrees towards the target). This can also be seen in the ‘before’ picture below.

To help Michael remove this fault from his swing, we placed a stability ball between his legs and encouraged him to ‘rotate’ his shoulders instead of ‘tilting’ them.

As you can see from the K-Vest data from the end of the lesson, Michael’s upper body was leaning 3 degrees away from the target, an improvement of 10 degrees!

Precise Practice Makes Permanent

Changing your swing within a golf lesson is not the end of the story; the majority of golfers will slip back into bad habits the next time they practice. Michael is using the K-Vest to practice to make sure that does not happen to him.

Hire the K-Vest to practice for as little as £5

For £5 you can practice for 30 minutes, if you are in the wrong position you will not be given the biofeedback (music playing). This is guaranteed to make your practice more effective.

New technology to help your game arrives in the golf studio

K-Vest 7 is the world’s first human motion learning system. It is a wireless system that instantaneously measures a players’ power signatures and 3D Data. This data allows us to provide you with a development programme that will help you improve faster than ever before. We can break down using the K-Vest into the four phases of player development

  1. Measure – K-Vest allows us to measure your movement patterns in greater detail than the fastest video cameras on the market. Movement patterns are captured via powerful wireless 3d sensors.
  2. Assess – Once we have measured your swing, it is now time for us to assess the data. The K-Vest software runs advanced biomechanical algorithms that help us to evaluate player movement. It also generates easy to use reports and offers recommended programmes for the areas of the swing where you need to improve
  3. Coach – The software provides intuitive biofeedback that allows us to coach you new skills and movement patterns. Every time you get into the correct position, not only will the computer screen change colour but you will also hear music.

 

“Coaching beyond words”

 

Standard golf coaching relies on a coach commenting on whether you are in the correct position. With the visual and auditory feel back, the rate of improvement is faster than ever before giving you better value for money.

4. Train – As I am sure you are aware, improving your swing is about more than just taking lessons. It is vital that you put in the practice to make the new skills and movement patterns permanent. Have you ever been to practice after a lesson and been unsure as to whether you are actually performing the swing you are meant to? Practice with the K-Vest at the Cheshire Golf Studio and this will not happen, helping to speed up the learning process.

Measure Your Progress – Have You Actually Improved?

 Looking purely at your handicap as a guide to your improvement does not give us enough information as to whether your swing is improving. The K-Vest allows us to compare the exact movements of your body before and after use to the nearest degree!
