The golf swing is difficult to master in part because it is not a natural or easy movement. This can be especially troubling if you are recovering from an injury and hoping to get back onto the course. There is no one correct way to swing a club. However, there is an ideal and efficient way to move your body and golf club through the swing. Renew offers swing analysis and corrective exercises for any deficits or inefficient patterns in your swing using the terminology and framework from the Titleist Performance Institute. TPI is the leading movement analysis system for golfers and is used by 25 of the top 30 tour players in the world. Eighteen of the last 20 major championships were won by a TPI-coached player. If it’s good enough for the pros, it will surely help your game and prevent further injury. Our goal is to identify if your golf swing has led to an injury, help you recover and then safely return to golf as quickly as possible. According to TPI research, roughly 40 percent of amateur golfers will report a golf-related injury at least once a year. You’ve spent time and money on clubs and footwear, but the most crucial piece of equipment isn’t in your bag…it’s you!
Your golf assessment includes:
- In person physical performance screening used to identify potential deficits that contribute to the 12 major swing faults identified by top PGA coaches.
- Video analysis of your swing to examine if those faults are present in your swing. With typical injury recovery, your swing mechanics are not assessed until the end of care. Because a golf swing is so complex and done repetitively, we address your swing mechanics early and in detail. A straight par golfer will swing a golf club 72 times per golf round, not including practice swings. Include driving range time and you’re adding up the repetitions and the likelihood of a potential injury.
- You will receive the TPI movement screen via email to share with your TPI certified fitness or golf coaching professional if you already work with one.
- Inclusion of the Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA) Screen if applicable to your condition
- A detailed biomechanical examination on top of these golf and functional screens to get to the root of why an injury had occurred or why it’s keeping you from returning to golf.
- Manual therapy for any deficits noted during the assessment.
- Specifically prescribed exercises to address any stiffness, weakness, or movement control deficits noted during the examination.
Whether you are recovering from an injury as an experienced golfer, just starting out in golf and are nursing an injury, or being proactive on preventing one from occurring, we can help you move WELL and OFTEN move to keep doing what you love. Allow us to help you recover and get back to the course in par condition!
