In early April, the world watched as 21-year-old Jordan Spieth became the second-youngest golfer to win the Masters Tournament, one of golf’s elite tournaments.
Spieth credited his team for his stellar performance, including chiropractor Dr. Troy Van Biezen. Four out of five golfers experience back pain due to the repetitive motion of swinging a golf club, and Spieth said that he has received chiropractic care since he was 14 and continues to receive care daily to maintain optimum health and overall athletic performance.
Following a record-breaking win at the 2015 Masters Tournament, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth recognized those who significantly contributed to his victory, including his doctor of chiropractic Troy Van Biezen, Dallas, Texas. Since the age of 14, Spieth has relied upon chiropractic care to prevent injuries as well as optimize overall health and athletic performance.
“Dr. Van Biezen is an important member of my team and, thanks to his care, my all-time dream of winning the Masters Tournament has now become a reality,” states Jordan Spieth.
Noting that four out of five golfers experience back pain as a result of repetitive swinging, Dr. Van Biezen says, “Since a very young age, Jordan has aspired to win the Masters and has since applied great discipline to achieve this goal. Many athletes, and especially golfers, understand the significance to spinal and pelvic motion to functional performance.”
