Physiotherapy is regarded as an important part of the game at elite, professional and amateur levels. A large percentage of the top tour players often see physiotherapists to maintain maximum performance and prevent injury.

However, it is just as important for handicap and club golfers understand their posture, strength and flexibility, as golf can place a huge strain on many areas of the body. The most commonly affected areas tend to be the shoulders, knees, lower back and wrists.
Biomechanical screening is the first step you should take to determine any physical and postural limitations which may directly cause injuries or affect your swing and thus affect your performance out on the golf course. Following your screening assessment a personal exercise and conditioning program will be devised by the physiotherapist and taught to the individual. This will probably comprise specific stretches, postural advice and core stability exercises.
Many golfers struggle with technical faults, which may actually be the result of a physical imbalance in the upper or lower body. As golf is an asymmetrical sport, for example, a right handed golfer always moves from left to right during their backswing, and requires a player to lean over the ball, you find common imbalances between muscles at the front of the body (which are often tight and shortened), and the back (which are often weaker).

Many injuries can occur during a golf session. Playing for too long, inappropriate posture whilst picking up practice balls, lack of adequate stretching, swing faults and even carrying your golf bag can affect your game and leave you needing treatment.
