Question: When it warmed up, I went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls. Toward the end, I swung and had rather severe low back pain, almost dropping me to my knees. How do I avoid this in the future?

Answer: Bending and twisting create a lot of leverage and stress to the low back. Hitting one golf ball after another probably fatigued your muscles. However, walking 18 holes can be demanding as well, especially combined with repetitive swings and the elements.

Concussion is unfortunately a common injury in many sports. Football, ice hockey and surprisingly, soccer all have about the same injury rate. Almost 2 million concussions occur every year due to sports.

Typical complaints include headaches, nausea, dizziness, balance problems, double or fuzzy vision, sensitivity to light or noise, sluggishness, feeling foggy, change in sleep patterns and concentration or memory problems.
