Get Back In The Swing Of Things With Golf Physiotherapy

If you’re an avid golfer, you know how frustrating injuries can be. That nagging pain in your shoulder, recurring back tightness, or sore knee can really take the enjoyment out of your favourite sport.

But you don’t have to put up with pain and be sidelined from golf – help is here with specialised golf physiotherapy treatments.

Our expert golf physiotherapists understand the unique physical demands of the golf swing and have extensive experience treating amateur and pro golfers alike. We’ll pinpoint the cause of your pain, create a customised treatment plan, and get you safely back on the course – without compromising your game.

How Golf Physiotherapy Can Help

At Bounty Physio, our golf physiotherapists take a whole-body, movement-based approach to assess and treat your condition.

We’ll start with a comprehensive evaluation to identify areas of weakness, muscle imbalances, poor movement patterns, and postural issues that could be contributing to your pain and dysfunction. This includes:

  • Posture analysis
  • Functional movement screening
  • Palpation and manual muscle testing
  • Special tests for common golfing injuries

Armed with this information, we develop a tailored rehabilitation program which could include:

  • Hands-on techniques like joint mobilisations, soft tissue release, and spinal manipulation to improve mobility and decrease pain
  • Corrective exercises to strengthen weak areas, stretch tight muscles, and re-train proper movement patterns for the golf swing
  • Neuromuscular re-education using feedback tools to groove optimal swing mechanics
  • Functional movement progressions to safely return to golfing activity
  • Recommendations for equipment (club, grips, shoes etc) based on your swing mechanics and body type
  • We also provide guidance on preventing future injuries through golf-specific warm ups, strength and conditioning routines, and swing modifications if necessary.

Throughout your recovery, we can collaborate closely with golf professionals to integrate our physiotherapy with your ongoing skill development on the range and course. Our goal is to not only resolve pain, but improve performance too.

Common Golf Injuries We Treat

Some of the most frequent golfing injuries we successfully rehabilitate include:

  • Lower back pain – Low back pain is extremely common in golfers. The rotational nature of the swing, combined with repeated bending to pick up balls, can place substantial strain on the lumbar spine and surrounding muscles. We’ll improve spinal mobility, strengthen core stabilisers, and optimise swing mechanics to alleviate back pain.
  • Shoulder impingement – The excessive overhead rotation in the golf swing can cause irritation and wear and tear in the shoulder joint. Physiotherapy helps restore proper shoulder blade control, rotator cuff strength, and ideal swing plane to decompress the joint.
  • Elbow tendonitis – Repetitive strain on the tendons at the elbow from golf can lead to painful tendonitis. Treatment focuses on tissue healing, improving strength, and swing modifications to prevent further aggravation.
  • Wrist injuries – The wrist bears the brunt of club grip and impact forces during the swing. This can result in sprains, strains, and even fractures. We’ll design a gradual program to regain full wrist mobility and strength after injury.
  • Knee pain – The rotational torque transferred through the knees during the golf swing can be problematic, especially if you have pre-existing knee troubles. Optimising leg and glute strength, flexibility, and swing mechanics takes pressure off the knees.
  • Hip impingement – Impingement between hip bones leads to pain and restricted hip mobility which hampers the golf swing. Manual therapy, stretching, and gait re-training can alleviate irritable hip symptoms.
  • Neck stiffness – Having your eye on the ball requires considerable neck rotation. The neck can tighten up from prolonged time holding your posture in the set-up position. Treatment includes joint mobilisation, postural correction, and stretches for complete pain-free neck mobility.
  • Sports hernia/athletic pubalgia – Weakness or tears in the abdominal and groin muscles from the repetitive, powerful twisting motion of golf swings accounts for many of these injuries. Careful strengthening and progressive return to golf rehabs these effectively.
