The Initial history will cover a detailed medical history identifying past/current injuries.
In this we can identify if you are presenting with:
A certain issue unrelated to Golf (past/current injury)
Golf related pain/injury
No specific pain but interested in body assessment and tailored golf rehabilitation program
The golf assessment is a sequence of movement screening procedures which allow assessment of different movements patterns related to the golf swing.
It incorporates the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) screen, which involves a set of movement screening tests. The results provides a likelihood of certain swing characteristics, which the restrictions and weaknesses of your body are likely to favour. This screen is used by the top golfing athletes such as John Rahm and Justin Thomas, to name a few.
This screen is compared with video analysis of your swing to identify what areas of your body are restricting or creating an efficient swing.
Many restrictions through the body can alter our movement patterns, which can have a direct effect on our golf swing resulting in swing faults and restrictions. These results are what we address in treatment and rehabilitation.
An osteopathic assessment screens the whole body and will involve performing different movements to identify areas of restriction and weakness which can be the cause of pain.
Our holistic approach looks at the body as a whole.
Special tests will be chosen to identify and diagnose any specific injuries.
This allows us to educate the patient on the injury and provide detailed prognosis and healing time regarding issue.
