Physiotherapy for Golfers



Golf is an asymmectrical sport requiring flexibility, strength, coordination, balance and endurance.

  • Struck by lightening - 1 in 3 million chance
  • Struck by back pain - 1 in 4 chance
  • Golfers with back pain - 4 out of 5 chance
  • A Golf Pro hits a Tee-shot at over 100 mph. close to the maximum cornering speed of a Formula 1 Car
Is it suprising your back hurts?

Research shows that 4 out of 5 Golfers will suffer with unnecessary back pain, on average even a professional player will sustain 2 injuries a year and lose 5 weeks of playing time. Following back pain, the left wrist and shoulder areas are the most commonly affected.

Many players say they ache by the 18th hole and even still ache by the start of the next game.

This can be due to to several factors such as poor stability which leaves the joints vulnerable to low grade trauma. Stiffness in your muscles and joints leaves other areas having to do more than their fair share of the load.

A Chartered Physiotherapist is skilled and experienced in analysing movement, assessing your biomechanics and treating your injuries.

3 Key Ways the Physiotherapy Centre can help you:
  • Individual Screening
    A thorough biomechanical assessment of your muscles, joints, posture and balance. This will highlight any muscle imbalances, joint stiffness, postural or balance limitations which may be affecting your golf game. This will help me to put together your individual programme.

  • Personal Exercise Programme
    A programme of golf specific exercises to improve your game potential. I can strengthen any weak patterns of movement, lengthen any tight or shortened muscle groups, loosen stiff joints, correct any poor postural patterns, increase your core stability and improve balance control.

  • Your Treatment
    If treatment is required this will involve hands on treatment techniques such as mobilising joints, myofacial release and electrotherapy but importantly exercises to continually correct and strengthen with an emphasis on returning you to your sport.
My aim is to maximise your body's potential for golf and to help you enjoy moving freely again
