Golf & Body NYC has recently added K-VEST 3D to our growing list of technology to help our members improve! K-VEST is a wearable biofeedback device that can be used to measure movement, assess player characteristics and generate valuable reports. Our professional team can implement this in the hitting bays or fitness center in a session. Our team is currently learning, testing and implementing K-VEST into our assessments and look forward to offering these sessions for 2017!
Shoulder impingement is a common injury in golfers, especially affecting the lead arm. This commonly develops when tendons or bursa in your shoulder become irritated from repeated overhead movements.
At Golf & Body NYC, we have 3-4 different tests in our assessment process that let us know if you might have shoulder impingement. Once identified, we will do a clinical orthopedic evaluation to confirm and then guide you through the appropriate treatment protocol.

Director of Sports Medicine & Wellness, Dr. Bradley Borne shares one of his favorite exercises to do as a pre-round warm-up or a daily corrective exercise.
"This simple movement is especially good for golf and for people who sit most of the day," says Borne.
To complete the exercise simply raise one leg up on a 2-foot platform, move your body weight forward as you rotate to that side with the leg up. Do 10 reps. Repeat the same move as you lift your arms overhead 10 times. Then, simply put the other leg up and rotate to that side 10 times.
This movement opens up the hips, improves posture, and improves rotation while loading the hip.
