If you’re anything like most Golf players, then you’re a keen player of the game. However, no matter what you do, you never seem to be able to play to your full potential. You approach every new game with a fresh mind and a willing body, but by the end of the game your frustrated with a lack of reliability with your shots. You smash your driver perfectly down the fourth fairway, only to scuttle the ball into a bunker on your next shot. You pull off a daring iron shot thats sails majestically through the trees and on to the dancefloor, but then 3-putt on the green. Like most players, you love and hate the game. You may even be suffering with an injury that is holding you back.
Gain control over your game. If your looking for quick and dramatic improvements in the way that you play, then we may have the solution to your problem.
The number one issue with golfers is the way in which they address the ball.
Even those that have seen a golfing professional for guidance can still have issues with their game. How you position your body in preparation for the swing is of vital importance, and is essential in preventing injury and improving your performance!
Without a solid foundation to begin your swing with, you will be forced to make adjustments throughout the swing to compensate; this results in an unreliable golf swing, and may lead to injury.
Titleist report that around 60% of their professional golfers are adopting the wrong address posture, in the average golfer this percentage is likely to be much higher!
Address Posture is the Key!
Around one in three golfers are thought to have a C-shaped posture when addressing the ball. This is where the back has a rounded shape, and the golfer meets the ball by bending the spine, instead of the hip.
Around one in four golfers have an S-shaped posture when addressing the ball. This is where the back has an exaggerated lower back arch.
The problem with these postures is that they lock the spine, resisting the optimal movement that is essential for a reliable and pain free golf swing.
These postures also put a large amount of stress force on the muscles, ligaments and discs of the back, and over time these tissues can become damaged.
The tissues of the spine are designed to be strong and resilient. Very often the correct address posture cannot be maintained, or even achieved, due to the stiffness and lack of movement in the spine.
Mobilise the spine throughout its entire length, restoring suppleness to the joints and tissues, and increasing your spines ability to move optimally throughout your golf swing.
Power Assisted Micro-manipulation (PAMM) is a unique specialist spinal treatment option that is designed specifically for restoring mobility to the spine. PAMM uses a hand held device that essentially provides the therapist with bionic fingers. An amazing amount of sensitivity and control is provided, and without the constraint of hands, which fatigue quickly, a high level of intensity can be delivered and maintained throughout the entire treatment.
This essentially equates to a very effective method of restoring mobility to the spine, facilitating that essential spinal rotation throughout your golf swing. When combined with a comprehensive exercise program tailored for your individual needs, we have a very effective solution for unlocking the barriers to you performing to your potential.
