Absolutely. Whether your injury was from putting a heavy box on a shelf, or bending down to grab an item from the floor, pain/dysfunction can affect your ability to play golf. If you are a golfer that has any injury, golf rehab simply addresses how your current symptoms will impact your golf game and your treatment will include considerations for how to properly return to playing your best.
Yes. Because you are still working on the limitations you have with daily activities and not solely coming to improve your golf performance, we still perform traditional physical therapy and submit to your insurance company. Your PT program will just also include strength and mobility considerations for what you like to do with recreational/fitness activity also.
This answer differs for everyone. This depends on what your goals are, how often you come in, what your current physical conditioning includes, and if you are working in conjunction with a teaching professional. People can see improvements in as little as one session with proper posture or movement cueing. If you are looking at increasing distance and speed, understand that building strength and power does not happen in microwave time. You may not see any noticeable results for 4-6 weeks.
Our golf medicine specialists are not teaching instructors, so we do not give golf lessons. Ideally, we would work alongside your swing instructor to maximize the gains in your golf game by focusing on things your teaching professional wants you to change in your swing.
Likely. However, because our focus is more on fitness and biomechanics, we do not typically address things like the short game, where half of the golf swings are made. We do expect to see improvement in the full swing shots by improving postural stability, strength, swing speed, and consistency with ball striking, therefore, potentially lowering your scores.
We do have opportunities to utilize our Full Swing Golf Simulator without supervision with cash payment. Whether you are looking to just practice on the driving range mode to see how your ball flight is looking, or if you are looking to play 9 or 18 holes on one of our dozens of world-class golf courses, our simulator is available for individual or group use. Simulators are a great way to look at ball flight data, understand your swing pattern with some basic analytics, and have a ton of fun!
