Golf is a game that requires power and endurance. People from all levels and ages enjoy it. Even though it requires less heavy activity compared to other ball games, golf can still get you injured.
Physiotherapists on the other hand can help with that. The injuries usually occur from the collective effects of repetitive load associated with the swing on the body and/or from inappropriate technique. The most common golf injuries are in the lower back, middle back and pelvic pain, shoulders, elbow, wrist and hand.
The earlier you come in for a Golf Swing Analysis the more probable it is for you to avoid injury. Our physiotherapists will be able to modify your technique and guide you through your swing to make sure you’re risk free.
Our Golf Analysis sessions are extremely important for both pro and beginner golfers. The sessions include:
- assessing and evaluating your current injury
- identifying possible sources of potential injury
- equipping you with the skills and knowledge within a planned golfing program catered for your specific needs
- giving you an accurate diagnosis and management plan to assist your recovery
- treating you for existing injuries if any. This includes techniques such as massage, joint mobilisation or manipulation depending on your specific case.
As an outcome, you will be able to manage your swing on your own, avoiding injury and not having to seek regular treatment!
