It’s Saturday morning about 7:50am and our Adult Members are rolling in getting ready to start their day by getting their blood moving and crushing a workout. The focus of the day is explained and the dynamic warm up gets under way. As we touch base with each athlete we ask “How are you feeling today?” This question typically gets answered in two ways: with a hint of sarcasm from a reply along the lines of “with my hands,” or more seriously with a slight eye roll and something similar to “Oh, just the normal aches and pains of a 55 year old.” I’m telling you right now that you shouldn’t be settling for “the normal aches and pains!”
According to a recent post by the Titleist Performance Institute, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Dr. Harry Sese believes “Some golfers think minor pain is normal and try to play through it. Pain is NOT normal, and, almost always, will negatively affect performance.” Our coaching staff could not agree with you more, Dr.! If you are experiencing pain and discomfort on a daily basis, your body is sending you a message, and there is a reason why. Pain can be related to previous injury, overuse, inflamed joints, poor diet, lack of sleep, the list goes on and on. It is our goal to help address these issues and improve not only your general well-being, but your performance on the course. Through an analysis of both your physical function, and your current lifestyle habits (diet, sleep patterns, daily activity, etc.) we can help you determine that reason so you can feel better and perform at a higher level more consistently!
If you have pain in any area, please email me to schedule a brief meeting with our Physical Therapist, Kate Campbell to get an idea of how we can help you. She will be here next Wednesday, June 26 from 9am-11am, but other times may be available by appointment so please do not hesitate to reach out!
See you in the zone!
