Golf, Back Pain and Disc Surgery

Tiger Woods had to withdraw from a golf tournament last week and is struggling as he starts the PGA championship today.  Just now, Matt Kuchar, another elite professional golfer had to withdraw from that same major tournament.

Hopefully, he won't have to have micro disc surgery.  See video of that procedure below.

The surgery can be quite successful.  We still, however, need better ways to prevent spinal disc degeneration especially in elite golfers.

Thanks for sharing the information. Now a days people are very much into PRP, not celebs but normal person is also going for PRP. I read some more information on PRP Therapy from MetroMD.
