With the current temps, many will be taking their first swing of spring this weekend.

But, you don’t want to hit the first tee cold.

The Ontario Chiropractic Association has launched a campaign to help golfers called
Get in the Game Without the Pain.

Waterloo chiropractor, Dr. Sara O’Neill tells 570 News golfers should warm-up for a minimum of ten minutes before they start their round.

Part of their routine should also include a cool down at the end.

“Treat it like you would any other exercise or sport…Make sure you stay hydrated, drinking water so you don’t get dehydrated during the game.” said O’Neill.

“Many people don’t really realize that an 18 hole golf course is seven kilometres…You can get back into shape by starting to walk.”
