Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the world's leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing.
Dr. Foland uses the 16 part TPI movement screen to identify faulty stability patterns and altered mobility that will affect the efficacy and safety of the golf swing. Using the results of the screen, Dr. Foland compiles a report of performance and limitations and discusses how it could affect the individuals swing dynamics. Based on this information, he designs a comprehensive treatment plan and rehabilitation program aimed at correcting functional deficits.
This movement screen is not a replacement, but an excellent adjunct to the role of the golf professional. By identifying and correcting physical limitations, Dr. Foland assists the golf professional in breaking through critical barriers to swing performance with their clients.
All skills levels can benefit. We work with golfing "newbies", experienced players looking to reduce discomfort in their golf swing or to shave off a few strokes and high school and collegiate golfers trying to gain a competitive advantage.

What Does The Golf Movement Screen Include?
1. Full Physical Assessment, including 16 part TPI screen
2. Report of performance and limitations breaking down barriers to swing dynamics, and body function as it relates to everyday movement competency and injury risk
Based on the above mentioned details, further commitment to treatment, rehab and strength and conditioning may be recommended depending on client's goals.
We strictly focus on the fitness and medical side of golf. We understand the golf swing mechanics. We break down the joint kinematics of each position of your golf swing to find where the body is being hindered. We then prescribe a specific exercise program to increase flexibility and improve strength in the areas that lack muscular stability, alleviating the areas of compensation causing pain, discomfort, or dysfunction, which are affecting your golf game. We then integrate the golfer into a strength and performance program to keep his or her body golf fit.
At Kinetix Physiotherapy and Performance you have the added benefit of working with both our medical professional and our fitness professional.
