Benefits of Massage Therapy for Golfers : A Necessity for any Golfer !
Why are golfers catching on to the tremendous benefits Massage Therapy can provide to their bodies and their game?
Here at Elite Performance Therapy for Golfers we concentrate on relaxing the back, hamstrings, hip flexors, shoulders, forearms and wrists to create a bigger shoulder turn, better hip & back flexibility, more powerful torque and a higher finish. With the combination of Sports Massage with specific stretches, Massage for Golfers is a sure way to improve any golfers game.
Contrary to popular belief, golf is very physically demanding. An effective golf swing requires strength, stability, explosive power, flexibility and athletic ability to perform a movement that produces some of the fastest club head and ball speeds of any sport.
The effect of these repeated large forces on the body can lead to many different types of injuries, which are often specific to certain areas and sides of the body in golfers, depending on their lead side. From lower back pain, tennis elbow to rotator cuff/shoulder injuries, sports massage therapy helps to relieve pain and improve overall performance.
By realigning and stretching the muscles of the back, shoulders, forearms, hamstrings, hip flexors and wrists, sports massage therapy can help improve a player’s range of motion. With greater flexibility, you will be able to swing the club as you always wanted to…and play pain-free !
At Elite Performance Therapy we have worked with international golfers of all ages and levels, helping them achieve only the best from their bodies.
- Increases circulation that assists in removing metabolic wastes that can accumulate in muscles due to overuse and the repetitive motion of the golf swing.
- Reduce muscle spasms, trigger points and adhesions that need to be addressed to help prevent injury and improve quality of movement.
- Improve range of motion and muscle flexibility resulting in increased power and performance.
- Decrease anxiety and stress levels.

Whether you are a weekend warrior or a touring professional, including massage therapy as a regular part of your training program can help you to avoid injury, enhance your golf performance and play more pain-free golf!
