Your Health, Objectively. Treating Everyone Right.
Last week in Part 1 of In Your Corner with CORA: Playing It Safe for Golfers, our panel touched on some of the more general injury risks for golfers and introduced the important role of biomechanics in your golf swing. You can catch that episode here to gain a basic understanding of how physical therapy and sports medicine professionals are able to evaluate your body type then make adjustments to your swing that help avoid repeated stress and injury.
Part 2 of our panel on golf swing mechanics takes a deeper dive into the correlation between club head speed and performance on the course. Our golf experts conduct a close examination of four of the key components that contribute to your swing. You’ll learn more about treatment options and recovery protocols for specific injuries frequently seen in golfers with tips and advice from some of the top healthcare professionals in and around golf today. Special guests include:
- Dr. Rick Lehman, Director of U.S. Center for Sports Medicine + CEO LehmanHealth
- Craig Broadbent, PT, TPI Certified, Clinical Director (Oak Ridge, TN)
- Lane Ferreira, DPT, Senior Clinic Manager (Jacksonville, FL)
- Tommy Callahan, PTA, TPI Certified, Golf Fitness + Mechanics Instructor (CORA Sawgrass)
- Dr. Chris Collier, DC, CSCS, TPI Certified (Level 2 & Level 3) + Owner of Elite Chiropractic & Performance (Chesterfield, MO)
Topics surround the relation between early extension, centripetal force and power in the golf swing to pelvic tilt and common signs that help determine a golfer’s readiness for over speed training. The discussion even breaks down club head speed by age group (see chart below) and the implications on long term athletic development in junior golfers.
Gain a greater understanding of the four factors that contribute to golf speed, regardless of your age and ability level. This podcast truly is for every golfer!
