Why do athletes need help returning to golf?

While golf sometimes gets a bad rap as a sport that doesn’t require much physical fitness, a golf swing is actually an incredibly intense and dynamic motion that can place a lot of stress on the body. For this reason, it’s not unusual to see golfers of all levels seeking out physical therapy for a variety of golf-related conditions.

For professional golfers, most injuries are related to overuse, while for amateur golfers, injuries are typically related to poor form. No matter the reason for a golf injury, a professional physical therapist can create physical therapy routines that will get their patients back in the game as soon as possible.

What conditions can take golfers out of the game?

Golf injuries can be divided into two groups: acute injuries and overuse injuries. Acute injuries occur as the result of a single, traumatic event, such as twisting too far on a swing or hitting a submerged rock during a swing. Overuse injuries, on the other hand, occur over time.

Golf elbow, tendinitis, rotator cuff impingements, and chronic back pain are among the most common injuries to golfers. Lack of a warm-up, lack of flexibility, incorrect footwear, and improper form can all contribute to injury risk.

The most common reasons for a break from golf include:

  • Golf elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff impingements
  • Back pain

Physical therapy for return to golf in Safety Harbor, Florida

It’s not uncommon to need physical therapy to restore normal, day-to-day movement after an injury. However, physical therapy for helping a player return to golf isn’t focused on everyday activities; instead, it’s focused on the specialized movements that go into a stellar golf game.

To ensure you can return to golf, your physical therapy program will include golf-specific exercises and stretches that should strengthen the muscles most necessary to the game while decreasing future injury risk. In addition, a program for returning to golf is likely to include golf training and education to improve form in the long term.
