Golf Performance Assessment
There are many factors that influence our performance and our risk for injury on the golf course. The most significant risk factor for most injuries, and especially in golf, is our volume of activity. That is, when we start a new activity or sport and we don’t gradually increase our time spent playing or training we can overload our body and negatively affect its ability to adapt to the stressors of that activity. Therefore the number one piece of advice to all patients in the clinic is when starting a new activity or exercise we should gradually increase the volume and intensity of the task.
Our Physiotherapist, Brian, is Titleist Performance Institute certified. He utilizes a 12 step functional movement screen which is a group of physical tests to identify any limitations of range of motion and strength across the body. We then analyze your golf swing using slow motion video. Using information from both the body screen and swing analysis we can develop a training program for any individual at any level to improve their physical performance and decrease the risk of injury. We believe that there are an infinite amount of ways to swing a golf club but we can always improve our efficiency. We don’t try to rebuild everyone’s golf swing but rather make it more efficient and powerful.
