Golf Performance Analysis
Pain, injury and other physical factors can hold you back from achieving your best golf swing. Our board-certified sports physical therapist helps golfers of all ages and ability levels to avoid injury and perform at their highest level. A golf physical assessment goes beyond simply improving your golf swing, to include injury prevention (golfer’s elbow, back pain, etc.) and helping you to advance to your next level of play.
Physical limitations can affect your running performance and cause pain. A running assessment, as facilitated by our board-certified sports physical therapist, can help you to identify and correct causes of running pain. Whether you run simply for fun and fitness or you compete at an elite level, a running assessment through Mary Free Bed Sports Rehabilitation puts you on the track to achieving your personal best. Assessments also are beneficial for those who walk for fitness.
Wearing a brace while participating in sports can help protect your health, prevent injury and allow you to maintain the active lifestyle you enjoy. We’ll help you find the most appropriate option, whether you require a custom creation or a basic off-the-shelf brace. Many of these sports braces are covered by your insurance. We offer a wide variety of braces, with everything from knee, foot and ankle, to wrist, elbow and shoulder – even face fracture masks.
