More than 25 million people in the United States play golf regularly with marked benefits to their health and well-being. However, the optimization of the golf game, both in terms of performance and injury prevention, is an essential component of the sport that often gets overlooked. Clinicians treat a multitude of complaints in golfers ranging from wrist, elbow, knee and low back pain, and while treating these musculoskeletal disorders must also try and improve performance. This unique, multi-dimensional course explores the health benefits of the sport and provides an observation and assessment of golf mechanics. Participants will examine the complex movement of the golf swing and some of the common problems associated with it. In addition, participants will receive information on sports nutrition and golf psychology to improve a golf game. Our faculty, from the European Tour, PGA tour, The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab and Northwestern University will provide their diverse expertise and opinions in the management of golf related disorders and performance optimization. The emphasis of patient cases will focus on rehabilitation and training. Laboratory examples and patient discussions in small and large groups will help participants refine their clinical decision-making skills.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Identify the spectrum of golf-related disorders
• Discuss medical and therapeutic decision-making in the golfer
• Review a kinetic analysis of a golf swing
• Assess performance via swing and putting mechanics in golfers
• Evaluate pathology in upper, lower and spinal kinematics pertaining to golf
• Identify the current literature related to golf and health benefits
• Examine emerging research related to golf and new investigator findings
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
