Mabel ChongAfter my shoulder surgery, I requested through my orthopaedic specialist for a physio centre that could help me rehabilitate to playing golf in 6 months.

Can Physiotherapy help to enhance performance?
Absolutely! At PhysioActive, we have applied evidence-based practices to our swing analysis and physical screening, meaning we can precisely see the areas where you can improve on. With a thorough screening process we can help you to create an efficient swing by improving your 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. Conversely, a lack of efficiency will cause incorrect/altered movement patterns, overstressing different structures in the body.
