That brand-new titanium driver is
worthless if you have a faulty swing.
And all those golf lessons do you no
good if a back injury keeps you off
the course. No matter how much
money you invest in new equipment
and professional lessons, a healthy
back is crucial to keeping your game
on course. Proper time spent on
golf-specific physical conditioning
can help improve performance,
lower your handicap, and decrease
the risk of injury.

and Fitness Program
Who can benefit from our golf program?
The Golf Rehabilitation and Fitness Program at Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates helps
golfers maximize their performance, minimize injury, and return safely to play after injuries or
spine surgeries. Golfers of all ages and skill levels can benefit from the Golf Rehabilitation and
Fitness Program. We help junior golfers who are just getting started, patients recovering from
back surgery, weekend warriors trying to improve their physical conditioning, and retirees who
want to play regularly. Our program can be an effective cross training program for other sports as
At your initial consultation, you will be evaluated on up to 16 golf specific physical assessments.
This includes flexibility, balance, pelvic mobility, hip and thoracic rotation. A Titleist
Performance Institute (TPI) based customized exercise program will be created to address your
physical impairments. Your therapist will provide instruction and review your exercise program
with you. An online based PROsite account will be created that describes your impairments and
shows you professional exercise videos based on your physical assessment. Once created, you
will be able to review your online exercise routine anywhere you have online access. You will
also be able to send messages to your instructor if needed. We always welcome videos of your
golf swing and your golf pro’s input to help improve your game.
Fitness and Conditioning:
The golf swing requires your spine to flex,
side-bend, rotate, and extend. When done
repetitively, these motions can place a
tremendous amount of force (typically eight
times a person’s body weight) through your
joints and spine. The combination of high
repetition and high force increases the
likelihood of injury, especially if incorrect
golf swing patterns and muscle imbalances
exist. The Golf Rehabilitation and Fitness
Program at Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine
Associates can help you avoid injuries and
get the most out of your game by offering
proper golf conditioning and training.
Titleist Performance Institute Certified
Our staff of instructors, which includes physical therapists and a board
certified sports medicine physician, is certified by the Titleist Performance
Institute (TPI). TPI is the world's leading educational organization
dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to
the golf swing. TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s
body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
