Pre-Season Golf Exercises

Are you ready for the golf season? Try these exercises! Each is specially curated to check your body’s readiness for your first swing – from strength and stability for power generation to disassociation and body control for energy transfer optimization and injury risk reduction through proper sequencing. For more in depth screening taking into account your unique biomechanics and season goals, consider scheduling a TPI Golf Assessment.

 

Titleist Performance Institute Golf Assessments at Cioffredi & Associates

Optimize your golf mobility, strength, and power with a comprehensive 16-point movement screen and biomechanical video review of your swing, specifically designed to identify any movement compensations/deficiencies and how they may be impacting your swing. Your TPI certified physical therapist will use this screen to tailor an individualized program to improve your performance, reduce your risk of injury, and shave strokes off your scorecard.  Includes a one-hour screening with expert analysis and programming, as well as one follow up visit to review results and performance plan. Call (603) 643-7788 to schedule.
