What is a Golf Biomechanic?
A C.H.E.K certified Golf Biomechanic has a specialist understanding of the particular strength and conditioning needs of modern golfers.
Does a golfer need a specialist trainer? Yes, if you’re serious about your game and your long-term health.
Golf pressurises the body in ways that are particularly conducive to injury. So there is a high probability that a golfer with postural deficits and muscle imbalance or movement restrictions will suffer injury in the back, shoulders, elbows or wrists depending on their own unique pattern of imbalance and movement dysfunction. This highly personal pattern of muscle imbalance can also lead to a characteristic series of swing faults and inconsistent play.
Why do you recommend specialist training?
For a golfer who is serious about his or her game and long-term health, there are many benefits of working with a specialist trainer:
- Reduce the chance of injury
- Reduce the chance of having to play in pain
- Lengthen your golfing career by reducing unnecessary pressure and forces in the body
- Increase your performance in all aspects of the game
- Increase body awareness and stability in the short game
- Increase power in the long game
- Benefit from greater consistency in play through better postural alignment
