Dr. Tabaddor: Golf can lead to hip, back injuries, but it doesn’t have to

The weather is getting warmer. The Master’s golf tournament is underway. And, many golfers are probably itching to get back on the green.

While golf is often seen as a leisure activity, Dr. Ramin Tabaddor, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon with University Orthopedics, said it’s indeed a sport that can put a lot of tension on your back and hips. He said that can lead to injury without proper conditioning.
