Physiotherapy and golf

7.20am 7th November 2005 - People

As a result of the success of previous events the English Golf Union (EGU) and English Ladies Golf Association (ELGA) will again be offering seminars specifically dealing with the topic of physiotherapy and golf.
This will be the third year that such an event has been held and the programme consists of two one-day seminars that will both focus on this subject that is becoming more important in the coaching and preparation of top golfers.
Both days will be directed by Lynn Booth, the EGU’s co-ordinating physiotherapist, who will be supported by an impressive speaker list, which includes EGU coaches and physiologists as well as leading sports biomechanists.
Subjects that will be addressed include the mechanics and anatomical demands of the golf swing, musculoskeletal profiling, physiological testing and how video analysis can play a part in the coaching of the game. Previous years have provided delegates with a range of information and methods to support the injured golfer and, more importantly, knowledge as to how injury can be prevented.
The physiotherapy and golf seminars will be held at the National Golf Centre in Woodhall Spa, the home training venue for England men’s national squads, on 9th and 10th December. Previous delegates have included sports medicine doctors, physiotherapists, healthcare professionals and coaches working with professional and amateur golfers.
Full details can be found on the EGU website, or by contacting Carolyn Smith at the English Golf Union,
