Working with golfers is something that many physical therapists and fitness professionals enjoy and want to build a focus on in their practice.
One of the things I’ve always found interesting when working with this population is how the body interacts and influences both stress and performance output through the kinetic chain.
In this episode, I’m joined by Mike Scaduto to talk about golf injuries, how compensations in the body can influence the swing, and how this may impact both injuries and performance. Plus, we discuss some tips on collaborating with PGA professionals.
