Any athlete knows that injuries can sideline them and keep them from doing what they love. We know the body is a complex system and dysfunction at any point could cause pain and injury in unpredictable ways. Identifying the dysfunction or “leaks in the system” and correcting them is the key to longevity and improved performance in sports. This course will first review the joint by joint model along with the skin brain connection. It will discuss the common golf injuries and how to assess for dysfunction as it relates to golf performance. We will explore novel approaches that incorporate tools you already own for faster recovery and better outcomes: myofascial cups, kinesiology tape, IASTM tools, and compression bands. You will leave this course with new tools and tactics that will address the most common complaints in golfers.
