Research suggests up to 60% of professional golfers experience some form of injury in a season. In the amateur ranks this figure is around 40%. The Screen assesses two main components:
1. Mobility: range of motion (in the foot & ankle, the pelvis & hips, the Thoracic region and the shoulders) and flexibility (in key areas including around the hips and the posterior chain musculature).
2. Stability: This includes assessment 0f balance, strength and control in the main muscles involved in the movement chain
The information obtained from the screen can be shared with your Golf Professional/Coach and can then be used by your Physiotherapist or Strength & Conditioning Specialist to plan a more targeted conditioning programme to improve your game!
