Most golfers will either suffer a back injury or be restricted in playing golf due to back, neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist pain. Improving mobility and muscle balance can help prevent these problems. Good postural control, spinal mobility and muscle balance will not only improve your swing, but prevent injuries. Video analysis of your body movements can highlight problems and develop an exercise program to rectify them.
Chris Keevil has completed specific golf rehabilitation courses called ‘Get Fit for Golf’ and ‘Fit for Golf’ specifically designed to improve golfers’ performance through improved physical health. This is recognised by the PGA and used by numerous professional golfers around the world.
Consequences of a poor swing
Most golfers will either suffer an injury or be restricted in playing golf at sometime in their life. A poor golf swing can lead to:
- Altered swing path and ball flight.
- Reduced power and distance.
Outcomes of the Program
At the Epsom Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic we aim to:
- Increase power, control and co-ordination leading to consistency in the swing.
- Improve muscular flexibility allowing the body to adapt and make the swing easier.
- Encourage correct posture.
- Reduce injury levels.
- Improve handicap.
