The Director of golf rehabilitation at Howard Physical Therapy has been treating golfers of all levels for over 25 years. Beginners, week-end players, low-handicappers and professionals are all susceptible to the physical effects of repetitively swinging a golf club at a stationary object. Poor swing mechanics and overuse are two of the biggest causes of injuries for golfers. Common problems involve the back, neck, rotator cuff, elbow, and knee. In addition, fractures of the wrist and hand are not uncommon. The director of our program has been certified by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) and has undergone intensive training on common causes and cures for golf-related injuries. In addition, he has successfully completed Level II certification in golf instruction through the United States Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF). This advanced training involved extensive study of the swing, and proven methods to correct common swing flaws.
Combining this knowledge with 30 years of experience in orthopedic rehabilitation creates the ideal clinician for helping you get back on the golf course quickly and with reduced risk of injury. In addition to rehabilitation of golf related-injuries, our therapist works with many patients who have undergone surgical procedures, such as joint replacement or back surgery, helping them return to the golf course.
