Based on research of the top PGA pros compared to amateur golfers, specific musculoskeletal limitations prevent golfers from reaching their full potential. Certain physical limitations lead to chronic injuries that will take you out of the game and lessons. Golf Statistics based on research by the Titleist Performance Institute

At Premier Physical Therapy, we utilize advanced technology like K-Motion and K-Coach to provide cutting-edge 3D analysis for golfers requiring rehabilitation. K-Motion uses infrared cameras and reflective markers placed on the client to track joint movements in real time. This allows us to detect even subtle inconsistencies and compensations in the golf swing.

We focus our assessments on common problem areas like the shoulders, hips, and spine. The data from K-Motion generates comprehensive reports mapping out rotational velocities, swing planes, weight transfers, and more. This quantitative feedback helps us pinpoint exactly where mobility or stability issues are hindering performance. It also gives us baseline metrics so we can track progress with rehabilitation.

In addition to identifying swing faults, we also use the K-Coach system to help rebuild proper mechanics. Its training tools provide real-time 3D feedback and instant visual replay for reinforcing technique corrections. Sensors provide resistance and guidance while clients perform different golf motions, enabling us to retrain movement patterns in a very precise manner.

By combining motion analysis from K-Motion with the motor learning tools of K-Coach, we alter dysfunctional swing habits developed over years of play. We re-establish strength, flexibility, sequencing, and control to restore fluidity and power to the golf swing. Our golf rehab solutions use the latest technology to help clients swing pain-free while lowering stroke counts on the course.


Dry needling uses thin filament needles to cause micro-injuries that accelerate healing. The needle tip momentarily injuries contracted bands of muscle and connective tissue to initiate inflammatory pathways. This reduces spasm and oxygen deprivation. Manual techniques concurrently manipulate the layers of tissue surrounding these trigger points. Methods like instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization utilize specialized tools to assist the therapist’s hands in releasing adhered fascia, scar tissue, and fat layers crammed against each other. 

Some of the therapies used to accomplish the goal of regaining movement and reducing pain, swelling and stiffness may include one or more of the following:

  • Manual therapy
  • Soft tissue and/or joint mobilization
  • Muscle energy
  • Gait and balance training
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) – electrical muscle &
  • nerve stimulation
  • Therapeutic exercise and functional strength training
  • Ultrasound
  • Functional re-education
  • Rehabilitative exercises to help increase strength, endurance, motion, balance and coordination
