Assess Your Biomechanics This Offseason
The perfect time to consider the biomechanics associated with your golf swing is during Connecticut’s cold winter months, and Middlesex Health can help!
At Middlesex Health’s Center for Golf Performance, physical therapists, who are Titleist Performance Institute level 1 and medical certified, assess and address biomechanics. The goal is to help you understand how your body relates to your golf swing, while also keeping you healthy and pain free.
In addition to a multi-point physical assessment that focuses on specific body movements, such as body rotation and posture, Middlesex’s physical therapists conduct a swing analysis using a sophisticated motion device. A specialized computer program gathers key data points and then creates graphs that illustrate the efficiency of your swing. Together, the golfer and physical therapists determine pain points and limitations.
“Addressing any issues with your biomechanics during the offseason will ultimately help you when you are playing golf in the nicer weather,” says Brian Taber, a physical therapist and director of Physical Rehabilitation at Middlesex Health. “Issues with biomechanics can certainly impact how well you play. It can also make you more prone to injury. Your body will thank you!”

Acupuncture, a form of integrative medicine, can ease pain and help with stress management. (This could ultimately improve your golf game.) Acupuncture can also help if you are dealing with long COVID!
