- March Well Golfer Workshop
–Ms. Shirley Drier, Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist, and Ms. Amber Brooks, Doctorate in Physical Therapist, of Choice Rehabilitation (260-724-2400, https://choicerehabilitation.com) were present at Cross Creek Golf Club on Saturday, March 13th to present a Well Golfer Workshop. A focus of the workshop was to share with attendees manners in which to conduct personal critical evaluations of their body condition. A key message was not to allow yourself to become complacent in your changing body, making physical compromises to avoid challenging specific muscular groups. Teach yourself to be aware of your body and how to take care of yourself. Lack of use and aging can change muscular flexibility and strength. A major message to target improvement in your golf swing was building core strength in association with hip and back flexibility and muscularity. Another new paradigm taught was the importance of wrist strength in creating a stronger, more consistent golf grip. A series of stretches were taught to build flexibility and strength. A key communication was to conduct the stretches just to point of pain, but not creating pain. In this case, no pain IS gain. The stretches should be slow and steady to position, hold the position and then relax. Doing the stretches ‘fast & hard’ will defeat the purpose and may cause damage. Every person is slightly different, one generic stretching regime for everyone is not the best solution. Rather, Shirley, Amber and the staff of Choice Rehabilitation can work with you on an individual basis to customize a program specific to your needs. Individuals are encouraged to contact Choice Rehabilitation directly to schedule an one on one consultation. Too many people with muscle and joint soreness or stiffness look for a quick and easy solution out of a medicine bottle or via an injection. In these cases the pain may go away on a short term basis, but the root of the problem is not be addressed. A custom designed, well golfer physical program involving properly stretching and training your muscles, over time, will always be the least expensive, natural way to improve your body.
