What it is

GolfSMART is an outpatient therapy assessment that lasts about an hour. You'll work with a physical therapist with special training in conducting a physical assessment of your body and your golf swing.

The assessment evaluates your:

  • posture
  • mobility
  • stability
  • strength

Your physical therapist reviews your results and recommends a treatment plan that may include:

  • hands-on manual therapy for mobility deficits
  • golf-specific exercises for mobility and strength
  • golf swing video analysis
  • a consultation with a PGA professional

Good to know

Your health insurance plan will determine whether or not a medical prescription is required.

Good for treating
