We know golf is a sport for everyone of all age groups and skill levels. At Balanced, we would like to maximize every player’s game by maximizing the efficiency of their golf swing. Once this has been done golf injuries and pain on the course tend to reduce. The swing requires every segment of the body to move in concert from the head and neck down to the foot and ankle. We are here to help determine if there are any faulty characteristics in the swing that may be due to biomechanical issues within the body and assist in performance and reduction in pain through an individualized program.
Our TPI certified providers have gone through courses developed by the Titleist Performance Institute to educate healthcare providers on movement sequences and swing characteristics that may be affecting players’ games and leading to pain and discomfort. The courses also include in-depth analysis of common injuries and what swing characteristics may be leading to them.
TPI Physical Golf Screen
This is for our players who are not currently injured but would like to maximize their swing efficiency. The screen consists of 16 movements focusing on different joints and movement patterns from head to foot. We also offer slow motion video analysis of your swing to determine any swing faults. The screen helps to determine where deficits in motion or movement control may be present. This helps us determine a plan for improving movement efficiency within the swing. If you’re looking to maximize performance and do not have an injury, speaking with our TPI physical therapist near Charlottesville VA is where you will start.
