Prevent Golf Injuries
Poor flexibility and the repetitive nature of golf are the two main reasons for golf injuries. A recent survey reported that more than 80% of golfers spend less than 10 minutes warming-up. Warm-up exercises improve your flexibility and increase your range of motion. Failure to warn up can result in a decreased accuracy and distance. The repetitiveness of golf plays a big part in injuries. There is a direct correlation between the number of rounds or number of balls struck per week and injury percentage. The Henry Ford Sports Medicine professionals are trained to evaluate your flexibility, increase your range of motion, assist you in improving your golf swing and help you decrease your chances for injury.
Individual Sessions ($250)
Individual athletes may participate in three one-on-one sessions with a Henry Ford Sports Medicine professional. The session will be tailored to meet each individual's needs, assessing strength and flexibility.
- Meeting 1: Biomechanical Evaluation of you golf swing and mechanics using DartFish video analysis.
- Meeting 2: You will return one week later to review your analysis and receive a home exercise program developed using your DartFish results.
Meeting 3: Four to six weeks after you second visit you will return for a reassessment of swing, flexibility, and strength, and your home exercise program will be modified accordingly.
Group Classes ($40 per individual)
Our group class includes high-level training from Henry Ford Sports Medicine professionals, who will assess flexibility and strength issues in golf swing. Each participant will receive a booklet at the conclusion of the session that contains exercises and stretches that were reviewed in class, along with a personalized evaluation of individual's flexibility and motion through swing.
