Whether you are an avid golfer or someone who only gets out on the course a few times each summer, physical therapy can improve your enjoyment of the game, your performance and prevent golf-related injury.
There are a variety of other issues that may be negatively affecting your swing, such as: poor posture, poor balance and a lack of movement of the ankles, hips, back, shoulder blades and neck. A golf specific movement screen and individualized exercise prescription can help you make your swing. Enjoyment of the game and improvements on the score card can be realized through golf specific core strength and flexibility exercises - hopefully keep you pain free and successful on the course this summer.
Physical therapy also involves several kinds of range of motion exercises. When your range of motion is affected, it means that it is difficult to move a particular body part comfortably around the joint. This comes into play with your golf game. If you aren’t able to move your hip, back, shoulder blades, etc. in a smooth manner, you will find yourself in significant pain after 18-holes. Physical therapy can provide you with range of motion exercises that target these affected areas can help undo the damage and restore free and unrestrained movement to your joints and muscles.
