Posture Alignment Therapy - Golf!

Improve Your Golf Game!

The human body is hurting these days. If you are the average adult or even the average youngster, your body’s lack of sinew and flexibility is probably getting in the way of your golf.

Called “an epidemic of anatomical dysfunction.”

In golf, physical strength is the strength to not break down as you bring the club forward at a high speed toward impact “It requires postural integrity. You have to be structurally strong, if that makes sense. There are points in the swing when you’re putting tremendous stress on your inner muscles and soft tissue.

The Strength to be Stable

Weight-training can make you muscle-bound, so you can’t swing. The idea of weight training as part of a golfer’s program was to prevent injury and enhance performance. It doesn’t take bulging biceps and popping pectorals for Tiger Woods to get the head of his driver orbiting at 135 miles per hour.

Players possess a very high degree of hand and arm strength, but what you need is the strength to maintain that steady, firm hold on the club during the downswing. Again, it’s the strength to not break down.”

here is a relationship between structure and function. In other words, your body's structure or postural alignment affects how your body functions.

Posture Alignment Exercise

Posture Alignment for a Better Game./font>

Our Exercises helps create better postural alignment when standing, when sitting and for general daily activity. It comprises a series of stretches focused on correcting a particular postural alignment dysfunction. Many professional athletes are looking for better alignment for a better game.

Look in a full-length mirror: Is one shoulder higher than the other is? How about the hips? Are they dead level? Do the knees and feet point straight ahead? Stand sideways. Are the shoulders and head rounded forward? Are the hips rolling forward or back?

Remember it’s not just motion, it’s proper motion. Talented offensive and defensive football linemen who were unable to transfer their weight when the ball was snapped without first bobbing upward at the knee and shifting their feet. Wham!

Body's Design  Restored by functional Exercises

The body always remembers its design memory, so when you start changing the stimulus with exercises the body has no choice, it changes. The goal is to allow the body to return to its birthright, its design template, and it can because it never forgets the memory. All we're doing is providing the necessary stimulus by doing the simple exercises.
