Spine angle help
« on: Apr 25, 2012, 11:36:05 »
Due to back injury problems I've always played quite upright in terms of spine angle which in turn get my hands high at address, last visit to the range the pro popped past and suggested I lower my hands to increase my spine angle.
the results were superb, instant difference in strike, I told him I'd probably not stick to it due to degenerative disc disease in lower spine, his reply was quite interesting.
Spine tilt will take the weight of my torso off my spine and onto my core and playing without spine tile is probably doing my back damage.

Unfortunately I duffed up my back again a few days later so have been unable to try and groove anything but what I did manage I did feel the stomach muscles working during the swing which I've never had before.

Thoughts?  :hi:

I went from tall standing 2 planer to one plane swing, All I can say is that my back has been fine and the swing is arguably better and more consistent.

Went to one plane after speaking to the pro I am with now and the fitness instructor who work quite closely.

The fitness side played a huge role as now I am not leading with the hips and causing problems in my lower back. Its all rotation from the upper half.

Cheers Mas.
Plenty to think about once this bout has past, I'm on the case of getting another consultant to take a look at my scans, the current one concurs with the one I had at the nuffield in that I need a double fusion but wants to pedal me down the route of pain management first, given the amount of crap I'm taking now I can't see the point

When you did this, did you stand a little further away from the ball & bend over a bit more, thereby increasing your spine angle?

Not massively but yes.
