As a National Academy Of Sports Medicine Golf Fitness Specialist, I Integrate golf specific training with a comprehensive approach to improve all components necessary for any golfer to perform at the highest level, and prevent injury. This is done through a structured, cohesive, golf-fitness program that includes multiple forms of flexibility, balance, plyometric, resistance, and power exercises.
In order for a golf swing to be as proficient as possible, the entire human movement system (i.e., nervous system, articular, skeletal system, and muscular system) must possess proper amounts of strength, power, stability, flexibility and neuromuscular control.
Despite the popular image of golf as a leisurely sport, it is a serious athletic pursuit that can produce injury and trauma. Golf is one of the higher injury-producing sports played in the Unites States
Golf athletes, both amateur and professional, can experience golf-related injuries to various parts of the musculoskeletal system. Studies show that professional and amateur golfers have similar injury rates but experience different types of injuries.
The majority of injuries that occur in golf are from cumulative trauma caused by technical deficiencies (poor swing mechanics) paired with existing musculoskeletal dysfunctions). Through golf specific movement assessments, we are able to identify the underlining causes to your injury (injuries), and incorporate the corrective protocol into your training program.
