Golf: A Biomechanical Enrichment Program is a
program geared towards area golfers which consists of structural
and functional examinations related to swing faults.
Under the guidance of a specially trained
physical therapist, each participant can choose to receive a
biomechanical evaluation of his/her golf swing mechanics
through the use of an evaluation tool known as the Functional
Performance Model, thus allowing the physical therapist the ability
to assess and educate the golfer regarding the possible movement
dysfunctions and swing faults. Based upon findings of the
biomechanical evaluation process, an individualized program is
developed for the golfer. Program components include a
recommendation for improving soft tissue and joint mobility;
instruction in a home stretching and strengthening program;
instruction in golf-specific exercise drills for coordination and
balance; and strengthening and endurance exercise.
