WHAT WE DO & HOW IT CAN HELP
Golfing and Pain
If playing a round of golf leaves you feeling pain or you have an existing injury/issue with your body we recommend that you receive a chiropractic initial consultation and treatment to get your pain under control and injury healed.
Chiropractic is often thought to deal only with the spine. But the modern methods of chiropractic look at functional movement assessment, biomechanics of the limbs, and rehabilitation to give a more rounded approach to an injury.
Back pain is the most common complaint among golfers, particularly as people grow older. However, hip, elbow, shoulder and neck pain are all common complaints from golfers of all ages.
A chiropractic assessment at Knox Rehab allows us to identify potential faulty movement patterns that are contributing to your pain. We then conduct orthopaedic and functional testing to arrive at a precise diagnosis of the painful tissue and an understanding of why the injury has happened. This information enables us to target treatment and create a rehabilitation / exercise plan to allow a quick return to golf, and to help prevent further golf related injuries.
Chiropractors are ACC treatment providers. If you’ve suffered an injury via an accident within the past 12 months you may be eligible for reduced treatment costs. We can complete and process your ACC claim during your initial consultation.
If you have pain that is related to an old injury or other causes (e.g. arthritis or repetitive strain) then you can simply receive treatment as a new client.
Please note we do offer student discounts.

Golfing and Performance
If you currently golf without pain and want to improve your performance on the course with….
Improved range of movement and flexibility
Then our performance package is for you!
TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. We will record your golf swing and combine it with the results from a physical screening developed and utilized by Titleist Performance Institute. This is the same screening used on professional athletes at their headquarters in California. Limitations that we detect from your body during the assessment are then combined with your video analysis which help to identify key areas to focus on with specific exercises and drills. A typical assessment is 1 hour, with a follow up appointment where you will be provided with a detailed report of findings and a golf specific exercise program. A performance review is then recommended 3 months after the initial assessment to ensure you're progressing as expected.
Better mobility, flexibility and muscle memory patterns = better outcomes on the golf course and scorecard!

Firstly, I am not a golf pro! I am a novice but passionate advocate for the game. I first hit a ball during group lessons at a local club in 2014 – I was instantly hooked. I played during pregnancy and could even be found strolling the course having a quiet game on my due date!
My goal as a chiropractor specializing in golf performance is to provide players with a well functioning body to help them enjoy the best golf they’ve ever experienced. Being a generalized sports practitioner with little specialist knowledge does not interest me.
I am happy to work with and actively encourage collaboration with your preferred golf pro, contact me using the form below today to see if I can help.
