At RISE we offer a variety of treatment techniques to help you become pain-free and address the underlying issues that created the problem. We don’t know what treatment techniques will work best until we know what the problem is. Once we have done an assessment, we will know what tissue is injured and why that tissue is injured so we can create a treatment plan to address the pain and fix the underlying issues that are causing the pain. Treatment techniques we may use are:
Commonly Helped Conditions
To effectively treat a golf injury, we must determine what is damaged and more importantly how it got that way. We use information form your Golf Physical Assessment and golf swing analysis along with a detailed history determine what movement imbalances or compensations lead to the injury. We then develop a comprehensive rehabilitation program to correct these issues. We will use a patient specific combination of soft tissue therapy, manual therapy, acupuncture, electrical modalities, strengthening and motor control drills to address pain, improve tissue healing and optimize your body to move efficiently and return to golf without pain.
Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) assess and treat physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints of the body, mostly by hands-on manipulation. Assessment and treatment can include orthopaedic and neurological testing, soft tissue manipulation (Swedish massage is the most commonly used technique), hydrotherapy, remedial exercise programs and client education programs.
Athletic Therapists (ATs) are health professionals which specialize in injury assessment and rehabilitation. Athletic therapists assess and treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. An athletic therapist's goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.
To get truly effective results improving your golf game like developing more distance, control, and consistency, you need to understand the golf swing. Every golfer will have unique needs that must be addressed when designing a conditioning program. Safe, efficient and powerful swing mechanics are created through a combination of factors such as hip- shoulder separation, linear and rotational power development and core stability. Power created in the lower body then needs to be transmitted efficiently through the core into the arms and eventually to the club head into the ball. Understanding the mechanics of the golf swing is critical to building a golf-specific strength and conditioning program. At RISE we believe that the most effective program development must focus on creating proper movement then developing the specific needs listed above. Complete athlete development is essential.
We have a variety of training programs and options to help you achieve your specific goals. Your unique needs may include:
Wherever your starting point is, We will help you RISE!
We believe that every golfer has unique goals and needs. We thoroughly assess your movement quality and look for problems with mobility, stability, strength, or motor control. Problems with these areas can lead to an inefficient, or inconsistent golf swing or can lead to injury.
Our Golf Performance Assessment may include:
Once we understand your goals and have assessed your needs , we then create a customized program to take you from where you are to where you want to be.
Our goal is to normalize nervous system activity, increase local blood flow, and improve the soft tissue bio-chemical environment.
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available. Neuromodulation occurs through neurological and neurohumoral mechanisms at multiple levels, namely: peripheral nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum. Image 1 Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is mechanism-based, not disease-based. Therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified neurological dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms.
Custom Orthotics are devices that are inserted into shoes that help support and keep the foot aligned.
