How Physiotherapy & Exercise Physiology Can Improve Your Golf Performance

Golf, a sport that relies on strength, flexibility, and precision, places significant emphasis on the fluidity and mobility of your swing. At Prana Physiotherapy and Health, we recognise the multifaceted nature of this game, understanding that a successful swing hinges on various factors.

Why Golfers Experience Lower Back Pain

It's common for approximately 30% of golfers to experience lower back pain after a round of golf, often stemming from issues related to mobility, strength, or existing medical conditions. Our team specialises in assessing your body mechanics and swing, pinpointing areas of improvement, and recommending tailored exercises to enhance mobility and alleviate discomfort.

We use a comprehensive 16-step assessment to create a personalised treatment program for you. Recognising that individual differences exist in swing styles, our Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists can adapt techniques to accommodate various conditions and ensure optimal performance.

Benefits of a Golf Assessment:

Golf Performance Optimisation

Through exercise and corrective techniques, Physiotherapy interventions aim to optimise a golfer's performance on the course. By addressing limitations in mobility, stability, and strength, players can achieve greater consistency, accuracy, and power in their swings, leading to improved scores and overall satisfaction with their game.

Injury Management

Collecting a thorough history and using the golf assessment tool, we can provide you with a personalised rehabilitation program. This will help manage current or chronic injuries and treat injuries that stem from golf such as low back pain. We understand the importance of continuing with the activities you love, so we employ activity modification and exercise rehabilitation to keep you on the course.

Injury Prevention

By identifying biomechanical deficiencies and musculoskeletal imbalances early on, we design targeted interventions to reduce the risk of injury during golfing activities. Strengthening weak muscles, improving flexibility, and correcting movement patterns can help prevent common golf-related injuries such as lower back pain, golfer's elbow, and rotator cuff strains.

Longevity in the Sport

Golf is a game many individuals play into their later years. By addressing musculoskeletal imbalances and prioritising your physical health, our team can help you maintain a long-lasting career in the game you love. A proactive approach minimises the chances of chronic conditions developing, allowing you to enjoy golf for many years to come.
