Prepare Your Golf Swing For Spring

February 24, 2014

Spring is just around the corner. Don’t just show up at the golf course or driving range unprepared to move the spine, shoulders, hips and knees through the full golf swing. Loss of movement significantly affects performance and cause pain.

There are no gimmicks involved in preventing pain caused by loss of movement. The best prevention is restoration of movement. Like the golf swing, generic golf stretches can cause pain.

Physical therapists at CHC Physical Therapy offer the combined expertise of a: Certified McKenzie Spine specialist, a NIKE Golf Performance Specialist and a Professional Triathlete to improve performance and take the pain out of your game.

CHC Physical Therapy is the home of Golf Phyx. Golf Phyx consists of two parts:

  • The Phyx to correct Movement Faults.
  • The Fix to correct Swing Faults.

Heel stretches could actually be causing the chronic heel pain or plantar fasciitis that impacts a runner’s training program. Frequently, heel pain can be successfully treated and heel pain abolished with two simple exercises and the runner is able to return to running within days of their first visit. It can be that fast. Plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis might have been the original cause of pain and inflammation but when the pain becomes chronic there is often another structure that the present pain arises from. Come see us at CHC Physical Therapy. We specialize in Neuro-Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy. With most insurance providers, a doctor’s order is not necessary for physical therapy.

Pain with swinging the golf club does not mean that you have to adjust your swing to accommodate the pain.

Knee pain caused by arthritis does not have to keep you from walking around the golf course or up and down the steps.………. Actually arthritic knee pain can be treated and resolved without knee replacement surgery. It is common now for an orthopedic surgeon to tell their patient to come back and see him in one to two years for a knee replacement without even trying more conservative treatment. This was unheard of years ago. The fact is, no matter how advanced the arthritis is, significant reduction in pain and restoration of function can be accomplished without joint replacement. Of course, the longer the arthritic knee is allowed to degenerate without the appropriate exercise, the more the pain will increase. Physical Therapists know the appropriate movement. It is not the same for each person. Physical Therapists spend six to eight years in college learning about the mechanics of the body. Come see us at CHC Physical Therapy. You could be walking around the block or the golf course, pain free, every day this summer. We specialize in Neuro-Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy.

The majority of insurance providers do not require a doctor’s prescription for physical therapy.

Is your golf swing causing back pain?

Back pain caused by the golf swing can be easily resolved and a painless golf swing restored in a few physical therapy visits. So often we meet a golfer in the Fall who has suffered with back pain during the golf season. Golfers typically do not want to take time away from their game to commit to physical therapy. When his pain is abolished in a few visits he expresses his frustration that he wasted his golf season by adapting his game to the pain. Do not adapt your game to the pain. Come see us at CHC Physical Therapy. Truly, resolution of the pain and return to the game could take just one or two visits. We specialize in Neuro-Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy. With most insurance companies a doctor’s order for physical therapy is not necessary.

The Results...Amazing Outcomes!
