Golf physiotherapy involves a golf specific physical assessment and can help improve performance, reduce pain and increase golf fitness.
What is a golf physiotherapy assessment?
A golf specific physical assessment as well as a computerised swing analysis is used to measure exactly the way your body moves during your golf swing. The results are then assessed by a Titlelist Performance Institute Certified Physiotherapist specialising in the biomechanics of golf who then provides you with a written and verbal plan toward your goals.
We provide physiotherapy treatment for golfers suffering pain before, during and/or after your round of golf. With use of a physical screening and video analysis we are able to determine the cause of your pain.
Involves a whole body assessment that is a series of physical tests developed by Titleist Performance Institute to assess your ability to physically perform the ideal golf swing. The ideal swing requires a certain amount of flexibility, stability, strength and balance. Our physical screen will assess where you are excelling and where you need improvement.
In the clinic we are able to obtain high speed video footage of your swing and through video analysis we are able to determine how your physical limitations are affecting your swing and in turn may be causing your pain. We are also able to identify swing faults that are present in your swing.
With the physical screening and video analysis we are able to verify your body and swing are functioning in a safe manner to ensure you pain free golf for years to come.
Exercises and stretches are prescribed for home to improve areas identified as weaknesses in the physical screening. As these improve so will your ability to perform the ideal golf swing. Once you are able to pass all aspects of the physical screen focus shifts to improving your golf fitness and power through rotational plyometric exercises.
