California Chiropractic and Sports Medicine Center are delighted to announce our partnership with the MENA Golf Tour.
This year marks the fifth edition of the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) Golf Tour, an initiative by the Shaikh Maktoum Golf Foundation.
With support from the Arab Golf Federation and R&A, the tour is aimed at the best MENA National amateur and professional players, along with eligible players from the around the world.
MENA Golf Tour players can feel “a sense of relief” as immediate chiropractic and osteopathic treatment will be on hand at all venues in the UAE when the tour resumes after a summer break in September.
With ensuring physical fitness at the heart of their mission, California Chiropractic and Sports Medicine Center in Dubai have teamed up with golf in DUBAI the organizers of the tour, to provide medical advice, diagnoses, treatment and exercise rehabilitation, should the situation arise.
As part of the agreement, a highly-qualified team from the center will be present at all the MENA Golf Tour venues in the UAE, offering free-of-cost service to the players. If a player is required to visit their clinic for follow-up treatment, the clinic will be offering special MENA Tour player rates.
Since the golf swing is quite an athletic motion, involving the whole body, injuries can happen within multiples areas of the body, ranging from the feet and ankles, to the lower back, neck and shoulders. Golf injuries to the hand, wrist or elbow are also as common as wayward drives and duffed chips.
“Regular physical therapy can help prevent common golf-related injury, improve flexibility and help to optimize the body’s biomechanics,” said Dr. Charles W. Jones of California Chiropractic and Sports Medicine Center.
“Our main interest in contacting with the MENA Golf Tour is to give back to the golfing community and promote our facility and services amongst the tour players, their families and UAE club members,” added Dr. Jones, who enjoys extensive experience in treating just about every sports injury.
“Initially, our service will be available at all the tour venues in the UAE, but we plan to cover all stops on the tour as we move forward,” he said.
California Chiropractic and Sports Medicine Centre’s service is just not restricting to treating players, they will also hold seminars on practice days to educate players on the importance of good mobility and range of motion through the swing, how to avoid injuries, and how to maximize golf swing biomechanics.
Lauding the center’s support, Mohamed Juma Buamaim, chairman of the MENA
Golf Tour, said: “Our members stand to benefit immensely from their treatment skills and knowledge in differential diagnosis”.
“Dr. Jones and his greatly experienced team will not only be treating golfers, but will also be sharing the message of health through chiropractic and osteopathy. No doubt their job is quite challenging, but I am confident their high level of efficiency will translate into better scores.”
The complimentary chiropractic and osteopathic treatment service is the latest addition to a raft of incentives offered on tour that includes invitations to play in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the DUBAI Open and the Hassan II Trophy 2016 along with exemptions into the final stage of the Asian Tour Q-school.
Held under the auspices of the Shaikh Maktoum Golf Foundation and affiliated to the Arab Golf Federation and the R&A, the MENA Golf Tour resumes in mid-September with an eight-week ‘Gulf Swing’ that includes four stops in the UAE and one each in Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia before returning to the UAE for the season-ending Tour championship in November.
