As most of clients are aware I’m very much a keen golfer and given my knowledge of the body, its movements/restrictions, I thought why not combine the two. Which lead me to the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). The TPI courses are taught by two of the world’s leading golf experts who, over the past 20 years, have researched and implemented their knowledge and skills with the top PGA professionals, coaching staff and medical teams. In fact, of the last 25 major winners 18 of them were coached and/or treated by a TPI Certified instructor.
Now, I’m very proud to say that as of July 2021 I have become the only Sports Therapist in Cornwall to become TPI Certified.
So, what does this mean?
As TPI certified, I am now able to carry out a full-body screening to help golfers of all abilities identify physical restrictions that may be affecting the efficiency of their swing, using the state of the art TPI screening app which is only accessed by active TPI certified professionals (pictured below).
The information from the Titleist Performance Institute screen can then be used to advise specific stretches and/or exercises to help you achieve and manage the most efficient golf swing for you. This gives you the opportunity to not only improve your scores but also the ability to prolong your golfing career pain-free.
The screening allows me to highlight some of the key physical limitations that are the number one contributor to lower back, knee, wrist, elbow, ankle, or shoulder pain.
This qualification now also allows me to work in partnership with local Golf Professionals to help tailor programmes for their students – something encouraged and endorsed by the Titleist Performance Institute themselves.
