Happy National Golf Month!

The golf courses have been open since stage 2 came into play, which had from the pro to beginners out booking Tee times. This month we’re offering a closer look at what special services one of our Physiotherapists offers, for not only golfers but other athletes.

If you follow us on social media, you will see more content on common injuries we see in the clinic as well as some at home exercises and tips you can do at home to help treat and prevent these injuries.

COVID-19 Update

All of us here at Defy continue to take the appropriate precautionary safety and cleaning measures to ensure all of our clients feel safe coming into the clinic. What are we doing?

  • Requiring all clients and staff to wear masks within the clinic.
  • Disinfecting and Sanitizing of equipment after each use.
  • Practicing social distancing between clients.
  • Both staff and clients must complete a mandatory COVID-19 screening questionnaire before entering the building.

We are still offering Video Physiotherapy appointments for those who do not wish to come into the clinic yet. You can book these appointments over the phone, or online through our Jane booking app.

Titleist Performance Institute Assessment

Assessment offered by Brandon Bates

Our talented Physiotherapist Brandon takes a keen interest in golfers (being an avid one himself) and offers a unique assessment here at Defy. Passion for playing golf has driven him to take advanced coursework related to golf movement and rehabilitation. He has completed both Level 1 and Level 2 Medical courses from Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), the industry leader for educating golf professionals.

What is it?

An assessment that explores specific limitations on what is holding you back from playing better golf or playing pain-free.

A great assessment for any athlete whose sport involves rotation (ie. tennis, baseball, football, field events in track, swimmers, etc.) Your rotational movements are closely examined, which exposes where improvements can be made.

What is it not?

The Golf Assessment is not about you coming in to work on your swing (we save that for the golf coaches!)
