Physical Therapy Treatment for People and Athletes Involved In Recreational & Competitive Golf
Golf is a sport that all ages can participate in and enjoy. Although the golf swing can be a difficult thing to develop, a golf professional can provide the proper lesson and swing mechanics which can reduce injury and improve golf performance. However, even with proper swing mechanics, whether you are a novice or experienced golfer, the body may encounter injuries due to reduced flexibility of the upper back, shoulders, hips, and legs.
Often times, Golfer’s may seek physical therapy due to elbow, back, or knee pain. Commonly these injuries may be a result of excessive stress and strain through the swing cycle due to a stiffness of posture and body mechanics through the golf swing. These mechanical insufficiencies can be caused from a lack of flexibility, strength, and/or power of other regions which cause you to lose posture or overcompensate.
At Elite Sports Physical Therapy, our Golf Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation program includes a posture evaluation and movement analysis through your golf swing. We will create a customized plan for you to improve your flexibility and posture in order to master golf’s true fundamentals.
