Posted by:

Among a group of 271 recreational golfers, researchers found that 45% suffered from mechanical lower back pain (MLBP) and 23% had sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD). Further analysis showed that nearly 96% of the golfers with SIJD also had MLBP. The findings suggest that doctors should evaluate the sacroiliac joint in golfers with low back pain and that improving sacroiliac joint function could reduce the risk of low back pain recurrence.
