Benefits of Golf Massage
A common misconception about golf is that it doesn’t require much energy or strength. Every avid golfer knows this is entirely untrue. Strong golf performance draws on almost all the muscles in the body. The Myo-Fascial Performance Institute help golfers recover from injuries, work to prevent injuries and also help them improve their performance by increasing flexibility.
Muscles and the Golf Swing
Every part of the body is affected when you swing that club. Knowing which muscles are most critical to a golf swing requires special training.
I am Titleist Performance Institute Certified level 2 Medical. I understand how to assess your body mechanics to help your golf game. Knowing your shoulders support and provide power during the swing, moving from the core and into the club head. I can also teach you how torque is delivered from your core body muscles during your backswing.
Your lower back muscles are critical to maintaining the correct posture while making the upswing, and the upper back muscles keep the spine at a right angle during the downswing. Glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings also play a part to provide flexion, balance and even more power for this movement.
