Community Outreach


Before going out on the course, golfers should prepare themselves by implementing specific exercises. The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education offers a golf injury prevention seminar to help players of all levels avoid common injuries.

Golf seminars offer practical tips on how to stay in the game and out of the doctor’s office. Physicians and physical therapists discuss the most common injuries to the back, shoulder, elbow and knee. They offer tips for staying injury free, information on the best techniques for treating common injuries and suggest goals for pre-golf physical conditioning to optimize strength and flexibility. Also included is information on how poor fitting equipment may prompt compensating movements that can be injurious to joints and muscles.
