This course will serve to build upon essential knowledge gained by the rehabilitation professional at the basic educational level as required for practice. The instructional material provided in this course will expand upon the understanding of the kinematics of the golf swing. The learner will better understand the physical demands of the swing and the most common injuries seen, while discussing and examining the athletes safe return to sport following injury/ surgical intervention. This course will improve the learner’s ability to rapidly identify physical impairments of the golfer using evidenced based screening tools. Common golf swing characteristics/ faults will be examined and identified using both in person and video analysis to improve treatment and outcomes. Finally, this course will improve upon the overall communication skills of the rehabilitation professional
