The Game of Golf
With the growth of the game, it is no surprise to see an increase in the number of golf related injuries. Playing golf is demanding on the body. The typical golfer walks approximately 4-5 miles, takes over 100 practice and actual swings, leans over 30-40 putts, and bends down 40-50 times, all during a single round of golf! This can potentially be stressful to the body. The golf swing involves a significant amount of bending, rotary forces, and torque. This creates a significant amount of stress and strain on the low back, neck, and extremities. Injuries are commonly caused by too much play, poor posture, and poor biomechanics during the golf swing.
Golf Injury Prevention
When evaluating the golfer we perform a full body screen to assess strength and range of motion specific to the golf swing. Following the evaluation we provide the following:
- Individualized exercise program to address posture dysfunction, muscle strength imbalances, and muscle flexibility imbalances
- Injury prevention exercises that are “golf specific”
- Recommendation to golf pro or club fitter
