Harbour Chiropractic, Topsham
There are many different types of golf swing, and many different body shapes. My job is to make sure that the body is moving in the most efficient way possible. All too often I see players who’s limited upper back movement, or poor core and hip strength means they are suffering from shoulder or lower back pain as a consequence of the way they swing the club. By using golf specific movement screens, such as those used by the Titleist Performance Institute, we are able to asses golfers movement in a way specific to their sport. Once we know how they move, we can work to correct the issues. Not only does this help prevent injury, but it can lead to enhanced performance on the course by increasing their swing efficiency.
The aim of the golf performance programme is to create a team around the golfer. Having golf, fitness and medical professionals all working together towards the same goal means the programme can be tailored to that individual and allow them to get the most out of their game.
