Here’s an overview of what our Golf Program may include:
- Comprehensive Assessment: The first step of the program is a thorough assessment. The assessment consists of a series of 12 tests and screens that evaluate your mobility, stability and strength as they relate to your golf swing. The goal is to identify any physical limitations or imbalances that could be negatively impacting your swing or putting you at risk for injury.
- Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment findings, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to address any identified limitations or imbalances. The plan may include a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, flexibility training, and core stability exercises to improve your overall physical conditioning and golf performance.
- Golf-Specific Training: The program will incorporate golf-specific exercises and drills to enhance your swing mechanics, power, and efficiency. These exercises will focus on improving your rotational flexibility, balance, strength, and coordination. Read our older blogs here about golf strength and golf mobility.

We will develop a structured rehabilitation plan that addresses the underlying causes of the injury, promotes healing, and helps you return to the game safely.
- Injury Prevention: Prevention is key to maintaining a healthy golf game. We will educate you on proper warm-up routines, stretching exercises, and injury prevention strategies specific to golf. By identifying and addressing any physical limitations or imbalances that may lead to injury, you can reduce the risk of future problems.
