Many golfers refrain from strength training because they believe it will have a negative effect on their performance by reducing range of motion. However, studies have shown that strength training can increase club head speed, thus increasing driving power.

DCH Certified Golf Therapists provide a program of golf-specific stretching, strengthening and endurance exercises. The implementation of these exercises can be done at the DCH Rehab Department or independently.
Golfers who are interested in enhancing their game by understanding the role of the body in addition to the mechanics of golf, will benefit from this program. Schedule your initial assessment with one of our Certified Golf Therapists by calling the Rehabilitation Services Department at Dickinson County Healthcare System.
