The difference is obvious
Golfer's Body Check
Did you know a pull-hook shot can be caused by weakness in the right hip muscles? What about a push shot being caused by stiffness in the left hip?
Are you struggling to score lower, swing better and enjoy your game? Are you trying all the new swing techniques, got all the videos, lost all your grooves from hitting thousands of balls on the range? Well, maybe it is NOT your swing that is at fault. As with many poor swings the problem lies in the body’s inability to perform the swing the way you want it to.
The Golfer’s Body Check has been specially designed to assess for any faults in your body’s muscles and soft tissues which can prevent you from being able to swing the club you want to. This in turn will lead to bad ball striking, higher scores and a lack of enjoyment of the great game of golf.
Weakness and stiffness are 2 of the most common causes of poor golf technique. If there are any of these mechanical imbalances in the body, the body will perform many compensatory actions to make it ‘feel’ like you have made a good golf swing, despite the result not always being what you hoped for.
Manual muscle resistance testing and flexibility tests will uncover any hidden weakness and stiffness preventing you from swinging well. As certain weakness or stiffness can lead to poor technique and ball striking, these imbalances can often be linked to swing faults.
Ever heard of the ‘Reverse Pivot’? This is commonly a result of stiffness in the right hip, not poor technique. Inability to rotate fully on the right hip during the back swing results in the body compensating by straightening the right knee, bending the left one and the weight falling onto the left side. This allows your shoulders to complete what ‘feels’ like a full turn.
Being fooled by how things ‘feel’ is quite common in golf, but actually seeing how it is happening can be quite frightening. Some of the compensations can eventually lead to pain and injury and this can mean time away from the game! Not good!
So, if you want to improve your body’s ability to swing the golf club, prevent pain or injury or if you already suffer some pain when you play golf, then this test is for you. Give us a call on (07) 5568 7010(07) 5568 7010 and get your FREE Golfer’s Body Check now! You will be glad you did.
