TPI Golf Physio

Titleist Performance Institute Golf Physiotherapy

Are you having difficulty getting through the full 18 holes when you’re playing golf with your friends and barely able to get to the 19th because of pain or fatigue? Maybe you’ve noticed that you can’t hit the ball as far as you once could, or your swing feels limited or ‘off’?

If this is you, an appointment with our Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certified physiotherapist Chris Stokes is just what you need.

WHAT IS THE TPI?

The Titleist Performance Institute is a division of Titleist that works exclusively with both pro and amateur golfers globally to help them reach the top of their game. They also train physiotherapists from all over the world in the assessment and treatment techniques used by TPI when they work with such golfers as Tiger Woods. Clinic owner Chris attended a TPI Certification course in 2016 in Las Vegas, and has been working with golfers since to improve their game.

HOW DOES THE TPI GOLF PHYSIOTHERAPY SESSION WORK?

When you come in for your appointment, Chris will go over your medical history and get some information about your current golf game and any symptoms you may currently have. Following this, we will complete a physical assessment and movement screen, which has been designed with golfers in mind. This is critical for understanding your golf swing and what may be impacting it. We finish up by looking at your golf swing, and then will provide a personalized exercise program and any hands-on treatment that may be needed.

WHO IS THE TPI GOLF PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR?

Our TPI golf physiotherapy sessions are for golfers of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners to seasoned veterans. We believe that anyone’s golf game can be improved, and you shouldn’t have to play in pain.

WILL MY INSURANCE COVER THE SESSION?

Yes! As this is a physiotherapy session, you can bill it under your physiotherapy insurance coverage.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear friends,

As you will be aware, we are in the middle of a public health emergency due to the ongoing coronavirus/ COVID-19 pandemic. Following strong recommendations from both the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association in the last 24 hours, we have made the difficult decision to close our clinic until March 31st 2020. We believe that this is the ethically and socially responsible action to help ‘flatten the curve’ of the virus. We are trying to do our part to help take the pressure off the already overloaded Penticton Regional Hospital by preventing further spread.

Please note, we have NOT had any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our clinic. You can still book appointments with us for March 31st & onward, either on the phone at 250-493-1152 or on our online booking portal, located at the top of each of our webpages.

We understand that this may be an inconvenience, but we hope you can understand our decision in this unprecedented time. We will be working behind the scenes while our clinic is closed to make sure that all of your ICBC, WorkSafe BC and private claims are all being processed, and liaising with ICBC and WorkSafe as needed to extend treatment blocks which may end during our down time.

We are currently in the process of calling our patients to reschedule appointments, so don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us yet – we haven’t forgotten about you!

Again, we thank you for your understanding in this challenging time. We will keep you updated on the status of our clinic as the days and weeks unfold, and urge everyone to practice social distancing and keep updated on the current health advice from the Canadian government and health departments.

Looking forwards to seeing you all again on March 31st.

Best regards,

Chris Stokes,
Clinic Director and Registered Physiotherapist – March 17th, 2020
