As a golfer, regardless of whether you’re just starting out or have been playing for years, we understand that the sport of golf can become an integral part of your life. When an injury threatens to keep you off the course, it can be discouraging. But don’t worry, the sports rehab physical therapy we offer is highly effective in helping golfers get back to playing in fewer sessions with long-lasting results, compared to traditional. ice/heat/massage/chiropractic treatments. In fact, we advise against these treatments as they only treat the symptoms of your injury (the pain), rather than addressing the root cause. Our golf rehab physical therapy programs, on the other hand, target the muscles that aren’t functioning properly, strengthening your body and returning to golf free of pain.
Common Golf Injuries We Treat in Huntington
As an amateur golfer, the sport can be surprisingly demanding, especially for those who are just starting out. The demands of playing 18 holes, taking multiple swings to reach the green, working to perfect your technique, and carrying your own bag can all take a toll on your body. That’s why our physical therapists perform a comprehensive assessment on each patient during each therapy session. You might feel the pain of your golf injury in your shoulder, but our assessment may uncover that the root cause is actually located in your back or hamstring. At our clinic, we specialize in the treatment of all types of sports injuries, including both acute and chronic pain. Whether your pain is the result of golfing, another sport, or regular use, we are here to help. Some of the most common golf injuries we see and treat regularly include: back pain, neck pain, elbow tendonitis (golfer’s elbow), rotator cuff injuries, knee pain, wrist tendonitis, hip pain, and ankle tendonitis.
Sports Rehab Physical Therapy Sessions: What to Expect
What sets our sports rehab physical therapy apart is its personalized
approach, tailored to your unique movement patterns and muscle habits. Your Physical Therapist will perform a full body assessment, then will funnel it down to focusing on your specific needs and taking into account how your body moves. This assessment takes a comprehensive approach, evaluating your body’s function from head to toe during each visit. Unlike traditional Physical Therapists who typically focus on the area of pain or decreased mobility, our system takes into account the interconnectedness of the body and how weakness in seemingly unrelated areas can contribute to pain and decreased function. This holistic approach leads to more permanent results in fewer visits, as it targets and strengthens other muscles that might be overlooked by a common Physical Therapist.
During Each Physical Therapy Session You Will Receive:
Assessment: To identify the root causes of your symptoms, you will undergo a functional screening.
Treatment: To treat the cause of your sports injury, we use specialized, hands-on sports rehabilitation techniques, followed by functional reinforcement exercises to retrain your body.
Re-Assessment: At the end of each session, we focus on evaluating your movement and ensuring that you are moving better than when you arrived.
Education: A significant part of our therapy involves educating you on how you got injured and how to prevent future sports injuries. We create a personalized program for you to follow at home, work, or play, to speed up the healing process and reduce the likelihood of repeat visits. Our goal is to empower you to become an expert on your own body!

“I’ve been treated at Universus Physical Therapy for discomfort associated with rheumatoid arthritis. The sessions include 45 minutes of one on one therapy including deep tissue massage and exercises designed for you. The therapist observes the exercises and corrects errors that may occur. I found this experience to be very helpful. I felt as though I was on Cloud 9 every time I left there. Carly Lowenstein and the rest of the staff were courteous, gracious, and helpful at all times. I am very grateful for their support.”
