Common Injuries in Golf

Due to the explosive nature of golf, the tension and stress that the body is put through in repetitive swinging commonly results in injuries. There are multiple explanations for injuries in golf, such as poor technique, lack of warm-up and an incorrect grip.
 

Using Physiological Assessment to enhance training for Runners and Cyclists

SSC offer a variety of tests to assess various aspects of fitness, including functional movement screenings (FMS), biomechanical gait analysis, and physiological assessment. Our physiological assessments include either a long-graded exercise test (LGET) or a short-graded exercise test (SGET) paired with breath-by-breath gas analysis and/or lactate sampling. These tests are essential for cyclists and runners to identify accurately current levels of fitness and areas for improvement.
Both the LGET and SGET are types of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Tests (CPET) and give us several vital pieces of information for determining how to train to improve your endurance running or cycling performance.

Recognising the signs and symptoms of common running injuries early, can promote early onset of treatment and reduce the one thing runners dislike… not running!
