Physical Therapy Continuing Education Course

Conditioning the Hip / Trunk and Compensatory Swing Mechanics

Lecture Name

Conditioning the Hip / Trunk and Compensatory Swing Mechanics     $59.90

This lecture is part of the following course:


This lecture combines two topics. The first topic is that of strengthening the hip and trunk in the golfer. It identifies the anatomy of the ccore and the classification of the muscles as local and global. The three different stabilizing mechanisms within the spine will be defined and related to the golf swing. Evaluation, as well as strengthening and endurance training, of the core muscles will be addressed

The second section looks at compensatory swing mechanics in the golfer and identifies possible physical limitations related to the swing, such as restricted mobility and muscle weakness. This lecture interprets these physical limitations during the golf swing and discusses how to evaluate and treat the limitations.
