Our Golfing SMART® Program

Our Physical Therapists are certified through the Titleist Performance Institute and work with golfers to develop a personalized plan to improve golfing mechanics and decrease overall risk of injury.

We use slow-frame videography and computer software technology to capture your entire golf swing. Our Physical Therapist will analyze your form, mobility, stability and coordination required to create an effective golf swing. As part of your evaluation, you will receive immediate visual feedback along with an in-depth assessment of your strength, flexibility and the efficiency of your swing. Our therapist will show you how to adjust your swing and positioning to prevent injury and keep you in the game longer.

Who should get a golfing evaluation?

In short, anyone who golfs! All levels of golfers, from beginners to those who golf daily, will benefit from an evaluation.

What current or previous injuries warrant a further look into your golf swing?

The overall force created during a swing can cause many golfing injuries due to swing mechanics, extension and rotation of the back. If you have any of the following injuries, you may benefit from the Golfing SMART® program.

  • Lower back
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Knee
