Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance to Offer Golf Performance Program
By: Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance
The program will be run by Joseph White, PT, DPT, A native of Hanson, MA, who is GRASTON Certified and earned certification from the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) with a focus on golf related injuries.
The program is designed for high school athletes and recreational golfers of all skill levels and can address an ongoing injury which is affecting your golf game, or for those who want to improve performance in general. A physical screen is performed on the first evaluation which looks at swing mechanics, biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and past medical history. The therapist will analyze physical limitations in a player's body through this comprehensive screen and will determine how these limitations can affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury. Once the screen is complete the physical therapist will create a unique plan of care specific to each golfer.
Peak Physical Therapy provides the player with access to turf to work on advanced golf specific exercises. Some of their treatment techniques include strength and conditioning, proprioceptive, balance, and agility exercises, plyometrics, power training, soft tissue massage, joint mobilizations, electrical stimulation, cold laser therapy, sports retraining and kinesio/sports taping.
"We are excited to have Joe take the lead on this new golf program, " said Eric Edelman, PT, owner of Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance. "Improving the golf swing to improve the quality of your golf game is a great opportunity. In addition we are always eager to offer services that help prevent a sports injury or assist in the recovery from an injury."
