Golf is a sport that is underestimated on the amount of stress it plays on the body. There is a significant amount of rotation and explosiveness that the body performs with each swing as well as a significant amount of repetition the body undergoes with each golf round. This can lead to acute and overuse injuries. Whether you are an everyday golfer or simply a weekend warrior when it comes to your golf game it is important to seek out a medical professional, like a physical therapist, who is specifically trained in golf rehab.
Common Golf Injuries:
-Low back pain
-Rotator cuff tendonitis/shoulder pain
What to expect
A TPI certified physical therapist will take you through a thorough golf movement screen that will address your physical abilities and limitations for proper mechanics during a golf swing. The screen covers 16 different movements that assess your mobility, stability, and balance. After a thorough physical examination, the physical therapist will guide your treatments focused around golf specific mobility, stability, strength and power in order to address current injuries, prevent future ones and improve performance.
