Our Program

 

The golf swing is a complex sequence of movements created by a series of muscular actions performed in a coordinated pattern.

 

This path is different for each golfer, but is dictated primarily by the physical qualities of each individual golfer.

 

Physical limitations, such as poor balance or lack of hip mobility, can lead to swing faults or injury. Swing faults that result from physical limitations can also lead to specific injuries.

 

UW Health Sports Rehabilitation has created the UW Health Golfers Clinic to help individuals address:

  • Swing biomechanics
  • Golf-related injuries
  • And physical limitations that impact an individual's golf swing

The UW Health Golfers Clinic includes a series of diagnostic physical tests used to evaluate each golfer's physical attributes as they relate to the golf swing. Based on this evaluation, a custom program will be designed to address the physical needs of each individual.
