Golf Screening

PhysioActive Performance Golf offers benefits for golfers of any age, catering to elite and amateur players. We have applied evidence-based practice to our swing analysis and physical screening, meaning we can precisely see where you need help.

Golf is one of the most popular games in the world, with over 55 million people playing each year. Unfortunately injuries are very prevalent in the game of golf. Nearly 30% of all golfers will experience back pain after every round. Not to mention other ailments in the knee, hip, shoulder and wrist.

Common lower back injuries can include:

  • Disc injury
  • Muscle strain or ligament sprain
  • Joint degeneration/arthritis
  • Stress fracture
  • Dysfunctional movement patterns

Other common injuries experienced by golfers include:

  • Golfers elbow
  • Shoulder pain – rotator cuff impingement
  • Hip arthritis
  • Meniscus injury in the knee

We realise that everyone’s golf swing is unique, almost like a fingerprint. Our aim is to improve the EFFICIENCY of your golf swing, not re-design it. We understand the key functional movements that our body requires to perform an efficient swing. With a thorough screening process, we will isolate the areas of the body that need to improve in order to create your efficient swing. This may be an element of:

  • Mobility (range of movement at a certain joint), or
  • Stability (the strength of muscle groups supporting certain joints)

An efficient golf swing is crucial to better performance, and conversely a lack of efficiency causes incorrect/altered movement patterns. As a result, we can overstress different structures in the body, ultimately leading to:

  • Injury
  • Pain
  • Poor performance

Our comprehensive golf specific assessment and swing analysis is suitable for golfers who:

  • Are interested in optimising their performance
  • Wish to prevent injury
  • Understand and solve current injury
  • Improve fitness and golf related strength

PhysioActive Performance Golf utilises a systematic framework to analyse, address and promote improved and healthier golfing.

  1. 18 part Physical screen
  2. Swing analysis – 12 point swing characteristic check
  3. Education – what is the body swing connection
