Our Approach

The Golf Performance Roadmap

Step 1: Set A Goal

We work with players who have various goals, such as hitting the ball further, achieving a single-digit handicap, stopping a slice, or playing without pain.

Understanding what is important to you allows us to tailor our evaluation and create a plan that meets your specific needs.

Step 2: Assess

Our detailed assessment goes beyond guessing; we examine your body and golf game thoroughly. This includes evaluating the movement of your hips, shoulders, ankles, and spine in relation to your swing.

We may also measure your power production and strength, utilizing advanced tools like 3D motion capture and force plate data from our Athletic Performance Lab.

Step 3: Complete the Plan

Based on our assessment, we develop a unique plan to improve your mobility, strength, and power. We might also work with a swing coach to address specific swing characteristics.

Throughout the process, we provide continuous support, periodically reassessing your progress and fine-tuning the plan as needed. Once you reach your goals, we ensure you have a maintenance plan to sustain your progress.

Common Golf Injuries and Physical Therapy Solutions

Golfers are prone to several common injuries, with low back pain being the most prevalent, affecting nearly 74% of players. Other frequent areas of pain include the hips, elbows, and shoulders. These injuries can be caused by overuse, improper swing mechanics, or pre-existing conditions. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in both treating and preventing these injuries.

Low Back Pain: Often resulting from repetitive stress and poor swing mechanics, low back pain can significantly impact a golfer's performance. Physical therapy helps by strengthening core muscles, improving flexibility, and teaching proper swing techniques to reduce strain on the lower back.

Hip Pain: Hip injuries are common due to the rotational forces involved in a golf swing. Physical therapy focuses on enhancing hip mobility, strengthening surrounding muscles, and improving overall biomechanics to alleviate pain and prevent further injury.

Elbow Pain: Known as golfer's elbow, this condition is caused by repetitive strain on the tendons. Treatment includes exercises to strengthen the forearm muscles, improve flexibility, and reduce inflammation through various manual therapy techniques.

Shoulder Pain: Shoulder injuries, such as rotator cuff issues, can be debilitating for golfers. Physical therapy addresses these problems through targeted exercises to restore strength and flexibility, along with manual therapy to enhance joint mobility and reduce pain.

By addressing these common injuries with a personalized approach, physical therapy helps golfers maintain optimal performance and enjoy the game without pain.
