THE THREE GREATEST NAMES IN THE GOLF WORLD TIGER WOODS, BROOKS KOEPKA, and DUSTIN JOHNSON
HAVE ALL RECENTLY HAD SURGERY ON THEIR LEFT KNEE
WHY IS IT USUALLY THE LEFT KNEE?
It seems like Hip and Knee Surgeries and Replacements have become epidemic in our culture and it’s apparent to me that the LEFT Knee seems to one of the most common injuries that we’re seeing. I don’t think it’s coincidental that the THREE greatest names on the PGA Tour – Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson have all recently had LEFT Knee Surgeries. (For Tiger, this is his 5thLeft Knee Surgery!).
I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that all 3 of these men are HEAVY WEIGHT LIFTERS. Why is that a factor you ask? Here’s Why:
- These guys have been playing golf since they were young boys making the dynamic RIGHT to LEFT golf motion millions of times growing up, while also playing other RIGHT to LEFT Sports. Whether you’re throwing or hitting a baseball, hitting tennis balls, or hitting golf balls with the same RIGHT to LEFT motion millions of times, you’re going to end up with a Stronger and Dominant Right Side – thus overpowering the Less Stable Left Side. After millions of ‘reps’ the torso and neuron patterns will get out of proper alignment and when that happens, FRICTION will be placed on the muscles and joints; and over time, the joint will eventually wear down and get injured.
- Then when that person begins a Heavy Weight Lifting Program, more and more STRESS and FORCES are going to be placed on that joint; which often drives the athlete to the Surgeon. The Surgeon then ‘Fixes’ the injured joint and the athlete feels like he’s now Back in the Game.
BUT, like Tiger, what often happens, is that the Surgery only took care of the Scene of the Crime, but not the CAUSE of it. Again, the CAUSE of the injury is usually the muscle imbalances in the body.
Louise Hay, the late Motivational and Holistic Author said it best:
“If a physician performs a surgery on a person, but doesn’t change the CAUSE of the dis-ease, they are simply prolonging the creation of the dis-ease where it will Reappear elsewhere.”
I believe that which is based on my personal experience of having hundreds of clients come to me whom have had surgeries (often multiple)and are worse now than before (many of whom can’t play golf anymore and come to me to get them ‘Back in the Game’)
The Good News is that not only can a PROPER Flexibility and Posture Restoration Protocol restore imbalanced muscles back into Balance, but actually get the person out of pain, and in most cases, keeping them out of pain in the future.
My philosophy is; GET YOUR MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM BALANCE, THEN
Get Straight – Then Strengthen!
WHICH IS WHY I CREATED THE POSTURE SYSTEM!
