    Is there any known connection between golf swing and stokes/mini-strroke as a result of neck movement

    It has been suggested to me that:  (1) many more golfers have strokes than the general population; (2) because the neck rotates relative to the head during a swing, there is a greater chance of a clot breaking off from a carodid arteries and causing a stoke.


    I'm looking for some medical evidence of the above - - not speculation.


    Thanks.

    Interesting reading on this link > http://www.ajnr.org/content/35/2/323 < but you need a lot of time to digest it.

    We cannot give you medical evidence on this site.  This is akaQA and we answer general questions only,  as we are not doctors.  Sorry.

    Very good answer :)

    Generally concentrating on the ball, would help. Following the ball on its circuit once off the tee makes finding the ball much easier, so it would involve neck movements for both :).
