“Most golfers set up in an anatomically incorrect, biomechanically convoluted posture and then crank on the strength in order to try to overcome this issue. It only leads to injuries and pain!”

Working with many celebrities and athletes led to Christian Reichardt receiving an invitation to work with the Professional Golfers Association.

Out of his experience, he decided to write PAIN FREE GOLF. Written by Dr. Christian Reichardt with John Klages, Pain-Free Golf is billed as “the golfer’s handbook with easy, proven techniques for playing the game pain-free”. Dr. Reichardt is a chiropractor by trade, a certified yoga instructor, and an advisor for Golf Fitness Magazine.

In addition, he lectures for the PGA of America. Dr Reichardt advises: one simple thing that nearly every golfer can do to improve their comfort is to “learn to set up in a neutral posture and swing through the ball. Stop trying to “hit” the ball!!”

The inroduction makes a few claims about the contents of the text:

  • This book will not teach you a new or better golf swing.

  • It will not interfere with your golf swing or your lessons; in fact, it will enhance what your pro has been trying to teach you and it will help you play better, consistently.

  • If you follow the evaluation and instructions in this book, you will play better golf.

The book is presented in an elementary, easy to read style with clear diagrams. The first 38 pages discusses the dynamics of pain, muscles, and movements with some discussion of equipment and swing mechanics. Next, a self-test to assess your "golf fitness" is included. Complete instructions for taking the test and how to score are clearly spelled out. Readers find their score and then their pain areas and are directed to associated chapters to find stretches and movements to work on their unique needs.

Dr. Reichardt also gives golf lessons in the Los Angeles area that focus on proper stance and form to avoid pain. His goal is to help the golfer play with more comfort and less injury. The message – have fun, "play golf; don’t work golf".
