Rehab Program Helps Get Golfers Back on Course
Hitting a golf ball with distance and accuracy is hard enough when you’re in good health, let alone when you’re in pain or recovering from an injury or surgery.
Specialized rehabilitation programs, however, can help older adults who don’t want to give up their favorite sport.
“Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center’s (PMC) Outpatient Rehabilitation Network provides specialized physical therapy services for people with golf-related injuries and for those who want to get back in the game after an illness or surgery,” says Barbara Kutch, P.T., D.P.T, C.S.C.S., a physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist with PMC’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Network.
Most injuries are related to improper technique or overuse – repeating the same motion over and over again, which places significant stress on the same muscles, tendons and joints.
As part of the program, a physical therapist, certified by the Titleist Performance InstituteTM, performs a complete physical therapy evaluation. In addition, the therapist performs a comprehensive swing/form analysis and functional movement screen to accurately determine areas of deficits during the various phases of your swing.
The therapist uses advanced biofeedback technology to assess, modify and improve mechanics during a golf swing to prevent further injury. Golf-specific exercises are prescribed to improve posture, body control and mobility.
Medicare and most private insurance plans cover physical therapy with a doctor’s referral.
