Mile Square Physical Therapy in Hoboken, NJ is Titleist certified
Have you ever wondered why you can’t turn your hips and torso as far as Sergio Garcia? Are you tired of nagging injuries limiting your golf game? The body is the most important piece of equipment a golfer has, yet the physical aspects of the game are consistently ignored by many amateur golfers. This results in power robbing swing faults, which can lead to repetitive strain injuries.
Who is the medical professional you can trust to help with such a problem? The physical therapist.
Physical therapists are experts in human movement analysis. For instance, they diagnose and treat tight hip muscles that can limit your hip turn on the backswing, and they can show you ways to strengthen your abdominals to generate higher club head velocity and explosiveness off the tee.
In addition to working with a teaching pro, most PGA touring pros work closely with a physical therapist to fine tune their body’s ability to move and maximize their performance on the course. The Titleist Performance Institute certifies physical therapists to evaluate golfers for movement dysfunction, and correcting this is the key to a more efficient golf swing.
He graduated cum laude from Boston University’s physical therapy program in 2005. Since then, he has enjoyed working with golfers in Southampton, NY, midtown Manhattan, and now in Hoboken, NJ.
Seth specializes in working with golfers in the rehabilitation and personal training setting.
He has completed coursework with Timothy Breland, a former touring PGA pro and licensed physical therapist.
He is also certified through the Titleist Performance Institute, the leaders in the field of golf performance enhancement.
