A proper golf swing requires a consistent swing plane and shoulder alignment to generate the necessary clubhead speed to hit the ball far and accurately. Unfortunately, this motion generates enormous unbalanced forces across the shoulder joint leading to poor swings, rotator cuff and elbow tendonitis and tendon tears. Unfortunately, proper rotator cuff training is technically difficult and time consuming, leading to extremely low compliance rates and far less than optimal performance and injury prevention.
A strong rotator cuff stabilizes the shoulder joint promoting the safe transfer
of power from the lower body and core to the arm for powerful and accurate
shots. A weak rotator cuff results in an unbalanced shoulder with slower
clubhead speeds and swing faults such as “coming over the top” or “casting
the club” which result in poor shots. Golfers are prone to shoulder and elbow
pain and injuries leading to time away from the course, poor performance and
medical or surgical treatment.
