Golf performance training may be the key to a better, injury-free game of golf.
The Golf Performance and Sports Rehabilitation Center provides golf-specific physical training to help golfers perform at peak levels, maintain a competitive edge, and enjoy a healthier, pain-free lifestyle.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is a branch of medicine that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of neuro- or musculoskeletal (nerves, muscles, bones), cardiovascular, pulmonary, and other disorders which produce temporary or permanent disability.
Our team is composed of physiatrists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Physical therapists are trained professionals who perform and teach exercises and other physical activities to aid in rehabilitation and maximize physical ability with less pain. Occupational therapists are professionals trained to help maximize physical potential at home and in the workplace through use of assistive devices and lifestyle adaptations.
In addition to the broad practice of medicine, our team uses physical agents such as heat, light, water, electricity, therapeutic exercise, and mechanical agents to treat patients.

The biomechanics of golf is unique, requiring the human body to go through an array of distinctive movements. Biomechanics is the science of how muscles, bones, tendons ligaments and joints work together to produce movement.
A golfer’s ability to execute an effective swing depends on whether his or her body is capable of performing extreme, explosive-type movements. While it may look easy, the modern golf swing is actually physically demanding, subjecting muscles, tendons and joints to considerable stress. Thus, inadequately trained golfers often exhibit swing faults and poor performance, and are at increased risk of injuries as well.
Any ache or pain that either forces a player to alter, or interferes with, his or her golf swing or stance can be considered a golf injury.
Most golf-related injuries are caused by faulty biomechanics, either in the stance or swing phase.
