Your golf game is better when it’s pain-free
As a golfer, you probably know that there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. By working with a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified physical therapist, you can learn about your own physical capabilities and limitations—and the effect they have on your golf game. Our clinicians will perform a comprehensive physical screening and movement assessment designed to identify any biomechanical issues that may be causing you pain or holding you back from having your best game yet.
GOLF ANALYSIS: BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN HEALTHCARE & SPORTS PERFORMANCE
Our TPI certified physical therapists will guide you through a physical screen designed to assess mobility, stability, muscle imbalances, lower crossed, and upper crossed syndromes. First, your clinician will explain how these findings impact your ability to move throughout the golf swing. Then, they’ll create an individualized treatment plan to address any biomechanical issues discovered during the screen. This plan may include manual therapy, strength training, corrective exercises, and/or proprioceptive training. Your therapist may perform re-assessments throughout your treatment program to measure your progress and ensure that they’re making proper modifications/advancements to your exercise plan.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is TPI? Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts. During this time, TPI discovered that a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in a more efficient way. Additionally, TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
- Is this a swing analysis? No, TPI-certified practitioners are not swing coaches or golf professionals. Technical corrections to your swing are something that a golf professional is far more qualified to help you improve. Our physical therapists will analyze your body’s physical abilities and limitations as they relate to the golf swing from a biomechanical perspective. We can work with your golf professional to help you achieve your optimal swing performance.
- Does a PT replace my golf pro? TPI medical professionals coordinate closely with your golf professional or swing coach to keep the lines of communication open and ensure that you are receiving the best treatment.
