  • Lower back pain problems

    Does anyone have the same problem here? After been playing more than 2 hour or 1 hour, my lower back started hurting really bad, the game needs to bend down a lot with your body and how to bend down with lower back pain?

    Are you maybe bending from the waist and not the hips?
    This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

      It's something I've never suffered with to be honest 888. Maybe itsnoteasy's comment above is the way forward. I'm unsure where the bend in my back is but I've never felt a twinge before mate.
      You may defeat me but I will fight you to the very end!!!!

        The standard stance, i.e. holding one leg straight/rigid could be putting too much tension on your lower back. Perhaps can try bending both legs to lessen the strain. I suffer from the same and have tight hamstrings too, just couldn't put in the necessary hours to get to a good standard, so I just try to enjoy whatever I can get out of the game.
        When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back. GET MAD!!

          Try stretching you hamstrings. Before and after a long period of playing snooker. It worked for me.

          My favourite players: Walter Lindrum (AUS), Neil Robertson (AUS), Eddie Charlton (AUS), Robby Foldvari (AUS), Vinnie Calabrese (AUS), Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, Alex Higgins, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Dominic Dale and Barry Hawkins.
          I dream of a 147 (but would be happy with a 100)

            Try doing some stretching exercises before you start and again mid way through your game. Longer term you could see a physio to get some exercises which would build up the muscles in your lower back.
