TITLEIST PERFORMANCE INSTITUTE (TPI)
Jamel Esch, PT, TPI-CGFI , has been qualified as a Certified Golf Fitness Instructor and Advanced Medical 2 provider by Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). TPI is a PGA and LPGA approved, golf-specific training program that has developed a physical screen to identify physical limitations that may be contributing to swing flaws, injuries, and higher scores. Our Golf Fitness Program will evaluate upper/lower body flexibility, posture, core stability, balance, and golf specific mobility. Based on the results of the TPI screen, we can develop an individualized exercise program to address each client’s physical limitations that may be affecting the golf swing and/or risk for injury.
What is Golf Rehabilitation?
Every golfer has their own swing.
But no matter how good the equipment is or how good the instruction is, a golfer can only do what they are physically capable of doing. A golf movement screen can determine what physical limitations are causing your swing problems.
Combined with a thorough physical examination and exercise routine, we can prevent injury, rehabilitate an injury, or improve your game performance. Lose the pain that keeps you from your game.
Golfers of all ages and skill levels can participate in the golf physical therapy program. Golfers will be assessed on their overall functional movement by going through a series of mobility and stability movements designed to grade, record and analyze the body’s movement. The total picture of your body and swing are assessed to help optimize your personal performance and minimize pain and risk of future injury.
You will also receive a personal assessment sheet with recommendations and golf specific exercises, plus tips for correct posture in other areas of golf, such as when carrying clubs.
