Golf Specific Physiotherapy
Golf is unique sport that places unusual demands on the body. Often the golfer that works a desk job is ill-equipped posturally to meet the demands of swinging a golf club. Conversely the avid practicer is doing countless repetitions unilaterally that can place great strain on the body.
Some of the more common injuries to golfers include lower back pain, neck and shoulder issue, hip and wrist pain. Our staff have a great understanding of the typical issues that golfers face with their bodies. Our physiotherapist can get you back playing on course following a recent injury or improve your function to allow you and your golf coach to make the technical changes you desire.
