Golf Injury Rehabilitation
At DHP we treat all types of golf injuries. We are certified by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) and follow their model of assessing injured golfers. Injury diagnosis begins with a TPI medical assessment that is a series of screens that identify a golfers range of motion, strength, flexibility, posture, balance and coordination as they relate to golf.
Once we identify your functional limitations we have an understanding of how these will predispose you to injury during golf. Understanding the underlying limitations that caused an injury enable us to create an individualized plan that targets the reason for the injury while we treat the injured area itself.

"This is my second season sending my clients of all abilities to DHP for physical evaluation. Dr. Smeaton and Dr. Fryer evaluate my clients and quickly communicate what physical problems they have so I can understand what is stopping them from performing the movements I would like them to. The personalized solutions they create are very player specific and help overcome physical problems from injury to lack of mobility or stability. Overcoming these barriers helps my clients perform the way we would all like them to and we get much greater results in less time. They take the guesswork out of teaching for me and allow me to focus on instruction."Brandon M. CPGA Professional
"I am 63 years old and have been playing golf for over 30 years and have always beena regular at the gym. When I retired I began to play much more frequently but soon realized that my body was no longer able to keep up with the physical stresses of the game. A friend introduced me to Dr. Smeaton at DHP where I underwent a golf fitness evaluation. The information gathered was specific to my situation and he noticed that I had limited mobility in areas that needed to move freely. The custom program he created for was very easy to perform and targeted areas I never would have thought to work out on my own. After beginning the workouts I soon began to realize that I was able to move from the correct joints and keep vulnerable areas like my low back more stable. I now golf 4 times a week without any pain in my low back and I'm noticing more distance from every club."Dave C. Amateur
"Every golfer regardless of their age, sex or ability, have physical restrictions that limit their ability to execute the golf swing. My golf professional recommended that I visit Dynamic Health and Performance to have my physical abilities assessed. When I was there, Dr. Smeaton conducted a simple set of tests that identified my individual restrictions. The results of these tests allowed him to develop a treatment plan and series of exercises that specifically addressed my physical limitations. Once you begin your specific exercise/stretching routine you will notice the golf swing becomes more effortless as you are no longer fighting against your bodies own restrictions. I noticed the results within the first month."Tim Vauthier Credit Valley Golf and Country Club
"I had my fitting on Tuesday. Numbers were showing club head speed was between 111-114 mph up from 107-110 in the past. I'm very excited what this can add to my game. Overall I feel much stronger and very balanced while swinging."Matt Robinson CPGA Professional
