Dr. Jenni Martin Online Training Continues

Add Balance to Protect Your Back During Golf Rotation with this Twist Drill

(Sacramento, Calif.) - Dr. Jenni Martin, MS DC LPGA Class A teacher and club professional, has been in the medical, fitness and health profession for over 30 years. She grew up next door to Mark O'Meara and the Mission Viejo Golf Course. Her interest in golfers began years ago while helping Natalie Gulbis.   Dr. Jenni Martin is now introducing a series of online fitness exercise clinics (www.thegolfgapper.com).

Learning to engage your core while moving your upper body and NOT moving your hips is essential to a powerful and balanced swing. This is a great exercise after any lower back issues. It is challenging and can be made even more so with the use of a weighted ball.

Sit on a medicine ball. Slowly, arms across your chest, raise each leg and twist with arms across your chest. Do this exercise slowly and to both sides. Switch legs. Do each direction 5 times. Add a weighted ball to increase the difficulty.
"Balance during hip and shoulder 'disassociation' is essential for a consistent and strong repeatable swing", says Dr. Jenni Martin.

Martin adds, "I work with your club pro and other professionals to provide feedback regarding physical needs, golf equipment and goals for changes that compliment your current level of golf - and keep you growing your game of golf without injury or frustration. Whether you are pain free, or post surgical hip, back or shoulder, this information is life/game changing."

"Golf equipment has changed dramatically over the last 15 years, BUT average handicaps have not gone down. Let's work together to increase the enjoyment of this wonderful game we call GOLF."

The 3-hour full Gapper Golf Swing analysis is frequently done by visitors from all over California. Morning and afternoon appointments help individuals complete the session in one day. Often out of town golfers stay overnight and play one of Sacramento's premier golf courses. Jenni can help with hotel arrangements and golf outing tee times.

Having developed the Tennis Elbow Kit, SAW (swing achiever for woman), the Stick To It Stretching Program as well as having authored numerous health and injury articles, she is passionate about teaching and evaluating golfers  via her Analysis Method and Golf Gapper Program. Jenni has advanced certification in Orthopedics, Sports and Recreational Injuries as well as K-vest, TPI medical professional and golf instructor. She has her master's degree in Biomechanical injuries. Utilizing  her knowledge in chiropractics, physical therapy, and her LPGA training  she integrates this information with appropriate visual, kinesthetic and auditory state of the art tools.

Martin's passion is to help golfers, young and old, new and seasoned, high and low handicaps, fit and perhaps... not so fit. Understanding an individual's goals, physical needs, limitations, body, and swing, Jenni Martin believes, is the only way to make permanent, goal-oriented, and effective swing changes and improvements. Martin's method is fun, entertaining and informative.

The Golf Gapper is a comprehensive golf swing and body positioning analysis system. The use of State of the Art evaluation equipment provides a customized and easy to understand way to empower your golf game. Golf Gapper methods will immediately improve consistency, distance and overall swing as well as create body awareness within the physical abilities and goals of the golfer.

Recently, a business associate shared with me an intriguing story about someone with back pain...

Michelle Onoff is a successful yoga instructor. Yet for some reason, she suffered with lower back pain.

As a chiropractor, and someone in the healthcare field, I was fascinated by this.

I don't know about you, but I was under the impression that yoga instructors, given their active, stretch-filled, muscle-focused, posture-perfect profession and lifestyle, would be the LAST PEOPLE ON EARTH to experience back pain.

Actually, I was kind of shocked.

If a health-minded yoga instructor can be dealt a crippling back pain blow, what does this say about the rest of us?

Here's Michelle story in her own words. I think it'll inspire hope if you're suffering...

"I was feeling very weak in my core area. And I was having some radiating pain in my lower back.

And I was going to the doctors, and they were telling me things like you need to have disc replacement.

You need to have all these surgeries...

You need to be on these pain medications;

And they wanted to put me through a lot of surgical procedures...

I didn’t want to do ANY of that. But the pain was so bad... I needed some relief.

So I went to two neurosurgeons and I went to a back pain specialist...

The surgeons wanted to operate on me in different places...

… and the back pain specialist wanted to do various procedures, including implanting something permanent in my spine.

I’ve had four procedures that involved needles in my spine, epidurals in my spine and that only gave me a little bit of temporary relief for a couple days.

But it did not cure or really help anything.

It just put a band-aid on a pain for couple of days and that was it.

After my first session of Back Pain Relief4Life, I felt an opening in my back that I haven’t felt in a long time.

I felt stronger to my core and I felt that that radiating burning heat pain that I was feeling, seem to dissipate a little bit.

It seemed to just open up my back in general.

And then after my second session today, I noticed EVEN MORE the stretch in my lower back and more strengthening in muscles that had been weak that I think might help support my lower back.

I was VERY SKEPTICAL about doing Back Pain Relief4Life. Because, as I am a yoga instructor, I feel very knowledgeable in anatomy. And how to help people that come to me in pain.

But I was not aware of certain muscles that I was not using in the body that might help my lower back."

- Michelle Onoff

Here's the back pain program she's referring to:

==>Back Pain Relief 4 Life

I share this with you today because if you suffer from back pain (like 3/4 of the population), I'm told this pain relief program WORKS WONDERS.

People, in as little as 16 minutes, have experienced nothing less than total relief. Do nothing more than a specific sequence of 8 simple, pain-relieving movements.

Sounds incredible, but yet Michelle is a prime example.

See for yourself. Especially if you're being told surgery, needles and medication are in your immediate future.

==>Back Pain Relief 4 Life

You've got nothing to lose.

Rajinder Singh

PS: My personal takeaway? Michelle was humble to admit yoga wasn't working for her.

To me? That takes guts.

She was also smart enough to stay away from drugs and surgery when there were other more natural options.

But sometimes, one gets to the point where you'll try ANYTHING to get even a little bit of relief. If you're at that point, I encourage you to check out:
