Glinn and Giordano Physical Therapy looks at the golf swing from a unique angle—the golfer's body. Based on the idea that a body limitation contributes to every swing flaw, we focus on how a golfer's balance, flexibility, strength, and endurance contribute to or limit accurate, consistent performance. We offer some of the most comprehensive training and assessment tools to help you play more consistent and better golf with fewer aches and pains. Without question, the last decade has seen the best players in the world better their golf performance by improving their bodies. As a result, the game has changed to a much more athletic endeavor. Golf professionals are taking a more holistic approach to developing the golf swing with clinical research on how proper physical conditioning improves performance and minimizes injuries among the world's elite golfers. This research led to the development of golf-specific fitness training and therapeutic treatment programs.
"Fitness in golf . . . is a critical component of the golf swing. There is no question, if my student is not able to make the swing motion I am teaching, he or she will have limited success. For many golfers, fitness is the missing ingredient in the golf swing. Fitness is vital to any golfer who genuinely wants to improve his or her game." - Rick Smith PGA Professional.
Using physical training and manual therapy techniques, a certified golf fitness specialist releases muscle tissue in areas that limit the flexibility and range of motion within your golf swing. Once you have achieved your optimum degree of flexibility and range-of-motion, you will learn how to control that motion. Next we guide you through proven golf-specific exercises that reinforce the use of your newfound mobility. When you are comfortable with your new mobility, we then progress to strengthen your body, which enables you to make a consistent, safe, repeatable golf swing. After your time with us is complete, you will then continue working with the Golf Professional at your local golf course to use your body’s new ability to achieve the appropriate swing sequence and lower your scores.
