If you’re reading this and you’ve seen the blog on the Golfer’s Pyramid, then fantastic!! If not, go and check that one out!!
The “Golfer’s Journey” is related to the Golfer’s Pyramid but this blog’s purpose is to give more of an outline on the necessary steps, the 9-steps to be specific, on how you can go from a golfer is injured, stiff, and inconsistent to a golfer who plays when he wants, shoots lower scores, and feels great on of the course.
One of the biggest mistakes golfers make when deciding on getting help for their injury or when trying to work on their fitness is not starting by getting a golf-specific assessment with a provider who truly understands them. I’m talking about getting with someone who understands athletes and understands the demands, movements, and strategies it takes to put yourself in the best position to play golf well and lower your risk for losing time on the course due to injury.
The second mistake that tends to happen a golfer’s journey to overcoming injury is being “discharged” from treatment or their program before ever getting to the ultimate goal. Some physical therapy clinics will simply discharge you once your pain subsides or when it hits 0/10 on the pain scale. In other cases, they may even discharge you because insurance will not cover enough visits to get you to your desired end-goal – leaving you with an increased chance to fall back into that rollercoaster stage or even injured stage on the pyramid.
The third mistake is not having a proven plan that works. Too many times golfers aimlessly try to employ strength and mobility workouts without much guidance or much strategic planning at all – either by themselves or by trainers that don’t have the experience or expertise in the golf fitness realm.
At Alliance Regen and Rehab, these are three things we absolutely focus on aim to be experts at! You’ll get the most comprehensive assessment in the Tampa Bay Area, you’ll get a detailed plan that is specific to you, and you also won’t have to worry about being discharged early! We put you in the best position to be successful because if you’re not – then it seriously keeps us up at night!

1. This 9-step formula is not only for those who are injured having pain on the golf course, but can easily be applied to those who simply want to improve things like power, consistency, and feel – even simply preventing injury in the future!
2. Go to someone who understands you and understands the game of golf. Golf is a unique sport and it has unique demands. Don’t make a mistake of seeing a provider who isn’t an expert in helping golfers with injuries or with their fitness.
3. Make sure you have a comprehensive plan and an individualized plan like the 9-step formula that will map it out for you and not leave you being discharged or having your care halted, leaving you feeling like you didn’t really reach your goal.
