Woods Will Defend Doral Title After Recovering From Back Injury
plays a shot on the third hole during the final round of The Honda Classic at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on March 2, 2014. Tiger Woods will defend his title at the WGC Championships-Cadillac Championship after recovering from lower back pain that forced him to withdraw from the final round of the Honda Classic three days ago. Woods, the No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Ranking, arrived today at Trump National Doral in Miami for a practice round before tomorrows start of the U.S. PGA Tour event. He said he had been undergoing nonstop treatment on his back over the past several days. The 14-time major tournament winner withdrew 13 holes into the final round of the Honda event on March 2 in Palm Beach Gardens , Florida . He was 5-over par for the round, which he entered tied for 17th after shooting a 5-under 65 the previous day. The will to win hasnt changed, Woods said in a televised press conference. Just physically, am I able to do it? A bad back is no joke. Woods, 38, said the pain was similar to what he felt during the U.S. PGA Tours first 2013 playoff event, the Barclays, when lower back pain brought him to his knees during the final round. He pulled out of a charity event two days later.

The lumbar spine is connected to your pelvis, and this is where most of your weight bearing and body movement takes place. Typically, this is where people tend to place too much pressure when they lift heavy things incorrectly and sit with poor posture for long periods of time. Think of your spine as a credit card. If you keep bending your card back and forth it will snap. Sometimes, unfortunately, that is what happens to the lower back. Prevention of back pain is better than trying to find a cure. Even if you dont currently suffer from low back pain, an exercise program that works on your hip mobility and core stability will keep it that way. If you do, these exercises will help. Incorporate these exercise into your routine, pronto.

Find the Right Treatment for Your Back Pain
You may need a new approach. Injections. Your doctor may inject medicine into tissue, joints, or nerves in your back. Steroids can reduce swelling and pain. Painkillers can numb pain. Depending on the person and the type of medication injected, relief may last from several days to several months. Physical Therapy. A physical therapist can give you exercises to build strength, help your posture, and improve how you move, so your back can recover and you can keep it strong. Prescription Medication. For serious or long-lasting pain, your doctor may suggest prescription medication.

Pain in the back
I hear the same story with most of my patients, who continued shoveling snow despite spraining or straining their ankle because they had to finish shoveling. However, when someone sprains or strains their ankle, they are overstretching a ligament or tendon resulting in pain and instability. By definition, a ligament is a type of tissue that connects bone to bone, whereas a tendon connects a muscle to bone. Three common structures in the ankle that are commonly injured are the anterior talofibular ligament, which is located along the outer portion of your ankle, the deltoid ligament, which is a large, fan-shaped ligament along the inner portion of the ankle, and the Achilles tendon, which is the back portion of your ankle. The way one typically sprains the anterior talofibular ligament is by rolling your foot inward and upward, which can happen with any type of activity, such as stepping off of a curb, jumping for a basketball and landing on someones foot, stepping into a hole, or slipping on snow or ice. The deltoid ligament can get sprained when planting your foot downward and outward, especially on an uneven surface, as well as pivoting movements, such as cutting when running with a soccer ball. Finally, the Achilles tendon is a large tendon that is under a lot of tension and is typically inflexible on most people. Activities such as running, jumping and brisk movements, which frequently occur in basketball and soccer, can irritate this tendon, resulting in pain and inflammation. Two additional common tendons that are strained are the peroneal tendons, and posterior tibialis tendon, which have critical roles in the stability of the foot/ankle complex. By overstretching a ligament or tendon, we cause microdamage to the tissue and nerve endings that control the speed of contraction of the ankle, leading to further risk of injury. With repetitive injuries to our ligaments, there is a potential to pull off a piece of bone where the ligament attaches, known as an avulsion fracture, or even worse, rupture. Tendons have the potential of tearing or rupturing, where surgical intervention might be your only option. Tendons and ligaments do not have direct blood supply, therefore they are unable to heal on their own if a complete tear or rupture occurs.

Cornerstone Physical Therapy in Clark on ankle pain
Back then he was curt when asked whether there were any long-term implications but here he was more forthcoming. A bad back is something that is no joke, said Woods. When Ive had my injuries over the years, it always hurt after impact. So its fine, the ball has gone, its going to hurt like hell but I can do my job. But with the back its a totally different deal, and thats one of the things Ive learned about this type of injury. On Sunday I couldnt twist and so couldnt make a backswing and when its like that theres nothing you can do. So were going to have a proper look at it and try to come up with something preventative but its a fact I dont heal like I used to do. I watch my kids bounce right back up after they fall down and I think: Hey, I used to do that. Woods came up with a nice line about meeting up with his watching daughter Sam by the 13th green. That was a very interesting concept trying to explain to a six-year-old why youve just quit, he said. In the swing: Rory McIlroy hits a shot during a practice round prior to the Cadillac Championship Ostentatious: Donald Trump stands in front of the Tiger Woods Villa – where McIlroy is staying this week Bouncing back: McIlroy blew a chance to win at the Honda Classic with a poor back nine last Sunday Tiger wasnt the only one with problems during that amazing final round, of course. McIlroy threw away the event with a poor back nine but youd never have guessed from his ebullient mood. As for that line about England, he was asked whether he had ever employed a psychologist in light of England using one.After answering the question, a broad smile spread across his face.I think Its more than a psychologist that England need, he said. In Australia in December last year, McIlroy got in a bit of bother with the internet trolls for replying, when asked whom he would be supporting in the forthcoming Ashes Test series: Anyone but England. Perhaps anticipating the Twitter reaction on this occasion, he added: Please dont print that. A bit late for that given the interview was broadcast live but its worth repeating: it was a joke, people. Luke-ing good: England’s former world No 1 Donald hits an iron during a practice session Familiar face: Open champion Phil Mickelson is also teeing it up again this week in Florida Chip: Henrik Stenson of Sweden hones his short game in front of a lake showing off a Cadillac It wasnt his only good one, either. Some of the $250million Donald Trump has spent on rebuilding this place has gone on naming the refurbished blocks of villas after legends of the game. Wouldnt you know it, McIlroy is staying in theTiger Woods villa. Theres pictures all over my room of him, said McIlroy, laughing. I sent him a message last night saying: I cant get away from you.
