Vertabrae independence typically allows each vertebra in the spine to move with a certain number of degrees when our whole body is involved in an activity such as golf. The three curves of the spine, makes the spine highly flexible and resistant to injury. If that is not happening, for example, if two or more spinal segments move as a whole unit, rather than moving independently, it can lead to an imbalance. The one-sidedness causes an improper golf swing and less power. Learn how to avoid this in the infographic below.
