Summary

This presentation will outline a physical therapist's role in golf. It will discuss the importance of ground utilization to efficiently swing a golf club. I will go in detail describing various lower extremity injuries and limitations and how they will affect your swing mechanics, especially as it relates to measurements in pressure and ground reaction forces. I will detail physical limitations at the ankle, knee, and hip that may present following various injuries and their impact on the golf swing.

Included in this presentation is detailed discussion on the concept of regional interdependence and how lower body impairments play an important role on injuries in other parts of the body. I will utilize examples from various clients, and describe various treatment strategies that were used to improve on the efficiency of their interaction with the ground.
