Want to get back to golf without worrying about re-injury?
There are an infinite number of swing styles, but there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.
The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body.
Understand how your body’s limitations can influence your golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether it’s through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise. We will spend time teaching you why your swing may be inefficient and how to optimize it with less effort with specialized methods from level 2 medical professional certification through Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). https://www.mytpi.com/experts/damisiura
What are some common types of golf injuries?
At Central Park Physical Therapy, we can help you find relief for any injury you may be experiencing. Some common types of sports injuries include:
Back pain is the most common symptom from the amateur golfer. It is typically caused by early extension during the downswing and other improper swing mechanics.
Neck pain is one of the most common golf injuries that keep golfers out of the game for good. Although your head (should) stay still when you swing, your body rotates relative to your head, so proper cervical mobility is crucial for a good swing.
Wrist pain along with neck pain is another leading injury that keeps golfers off the course. Learn how your swing may be contributing to straining your wrist and what you can do to fix it!
This condition is used to describe an overuse golf injury that causes muscle inflammation inside the elbow. This injury runs from the bony point of your elbow and can stretch down your forearm, making it difficult to extend or lift your arm. Golfer’s elbow can make it difficult to perform gripping, throwing, or swinging motions.
Rotator cuff strains and tears can occur from either acute or overuse causes. For example, partaking in repetitive dysfunctional swinging motions, such as those associated with golf, can all result in rotator cuff tears. A proper powerful golf swing actually uses very little energy from your shoulders.
