This program was developed as a response to many patients requesting “golf exercises” in conjunction with their normal course of Physical Therapy. There are two separate tracks in the program.
The Performance Track focuses on a “healthy” golfers’ most important piece of equipment, their body. With both a physical assessment and video swing assessment a customized exercise program is developed to achieve that players goals. Areas where a player may want to see improvement include lack of distance, fatigue/ endurance levels and backswing/ follow through limitations. Then, the players golf professional is consulted to collaborate and refine the players technique.
The Rehabilitation Track focuses on the player who has a physical “problem” that is keeping them from enjoying the game. These problems may include but are not limited to: pain, lack of endurance or limited strength. Many individuals who enter this program do so after receiving Physical Therapy for an injury or chronic problem. In fact players may need to undergo a course of Physical Therapy to allow them to participate in a beneficial manner. This track may include a video swing assessment similar to the Performance Track. After completing the Rehabilitation Track a player may opt to continue on by enrolling in the Performance Track.
The program is done on site at the OrthoGo Physical Therapy Clinic. There is a hitting cage, video golf simulator and a variety of exercise tools to assist in attaining the players goals. In addition the player will receive a home program to carry on independently to expedite their progress.
It is important to note that the PAR Golf Program not a replacement for professional golf instruction. It may however accentuate those lessons and techniques as provided by a Member PGA professional.
