Physical Therapy for Golf-Related Injuries – A Q&A with Dynamic Sports Physical Therapy

Ever wondered how to address injuries that interfere with your golf game?  Golf Rehab might be an option.  Golf Rehab is one of the services offered by Dynamic Sports Physical Therapy, located in mid-town Manhattan, New York. The Fourth Tee conducted this Q&A to learn more!

THE FOURTH TEE:  Thank you for granting this interview with The Fourth Tee.  Describe for us the types of golf-related injuries that can occur, as distinguished from pre-existing injuries, that playing golf can exacerbate.

DYNAMIC SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY:  As a general rule, the #1 predictor of injury is having had a previous injury, and any injury can be exacerbated from playing.

TFT:  What are some examples of the types of pre-existing injuries that, if left untreated, can be exacerbated by playing golf?

DSPT:  Any previous injury that resulted in limited flexibility, a reduction in core strength, or a decrease in balance, can lead to compensation and injury during the golf swing.

TFT:  As a general matter, what is the most common type of golf-related injury you tend to see in your practice?

DSPT:  Low back pain, neck pain, hip pain, shoulder and elbow tendonitis are all common.  Tightness in the hips leading to an increase in demand on the soft tissues of the low back, and or the additional demand imposed by the golf swing on a back weakened by previous injury are the most common injuries seen at our practice.

TFT:  What types of exercises are most beneficial, as generalized preventative measures?

DSPT:  Flexibility, core, and balance exercises are the most beneficial as part of a regular exercise routine for someone who plays golf.

TFT:  What is micro-trauma, and how does playing golf (recreationally or professionally) contribute to this type of injury?

DSPT:   When flexibility issues arise in golfers, the golf swing imposes excessive demands on the restricted joint.  In essence, the “end range” comes about too early and is “pushed” as the individual tries to swing the club optimally.  The “push” at “end range” with the intense speed of the golf swing results in “micro-trauma.”  This micro-trauma is essentially small tears and irritations that trigger the body to respond to injury.  The response to injury is most often inflammation and the creation of additional scar tissue resulting in adhesion and further restriction.

TFT:  What are the symptoms of micro-trauma, and how is it generally treated?

DSPT:   Micro-trauma most commonly presents as muscle or joint soreness, joint inflammation, but may result in little more than “stiffening up” a couple hours after play.  Treating the soreness and inflammation with ice and anti-inflammatory medications is common and has its benefits; however, release and flexibility techniques should be part of a golfer’s cool down.  Ideally, recovering from micro-trauma would include regular sessions with a manual therapist.

TFT:  What are some of the techniques/approaches used by Dynamics Sports Physical Therapy to address and repair golf-related injuries?

DSPT:   At DSPT we use the SFMA and TPI screens to evaluate limitations in movement and the golf swing, specifically.  The results from these assessments are used to develop an integrated treatment approach that includes manual therapy, exercise, and a home program.  The soft tissue techniques most commonly used by our practice to treat soft tissue overuse injuries are ART and Graston. 

 TFT:  Tell us more about the SFMA and TPI screens that you use in your evaluations.

DSPT:  SFMA is the selective functional movement assessment.  It is a movement screen that allows a clinician to determine the most likely cause of an injury.  This is usually different than the site of injury.  For example, if a golfer has knee pain the cause of injury may be due to lack of mobility in their ankle or weakness in the hips/ core.  If we only treat the knee and don’t treat the underlying cause, the golfer would keep getting reoccurrences of their injury.  The SFMA allows us to determine the cause.  The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) screen is a golf-specific assessment that allows us to see if a golfer has the flexibility and strength to complete a proper golf swing.  Then it is up to them and their teaching professional to actually hit the ball.

TFT:  What is Active Release Techniques®, or Art®, and why use this technique to provide therapy for golf-related injuries?

DSPT:   Active Release Technique is a manual therapy approach that uses specifically directed force to increase tension in fascia while the individual performs active muscle contractions to slide muscles past any fascial tissue or scar tissue formation that may be adhered from the micro-trauma process described above.

TFT:  In addition to Art®, the other soft tissue technique you indicated you use is Graston.  Tell us a little more about this technique.

DSPT:  Graston is also known as instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM).  It is a technique where stainless steel instruments are utilized to help improve fascial movement.  Fascia is the layer of connective tissue that surrounds our muscles.  If there is lack of mobility in this tissue, it can result in loss of motion and flexibility.
