Learning how to treat golfers is mandatory in today's practice. The Dr.PGA Seminar is designed to bridge the gap between the golf swing and golf injuries and injury prevention. We are equipping chiropractors with the golf knowledge to position themselves as the “golf doctor” in their practices and communities.
This is a 12-hour CE course that puts doctors on an amazing golf journey of golf education. Attendees will learn the biomechanics of the swing and learn the groundwork for recommending injury prevention techniques to their patients.
The seminar topics covered are golf injuries, golf posture, nutrition, warm up, swing faults, peak performance, exercises and warm-up routine, foot biomechanics, etc...
Our mission is help chiropractors treat more golfers.
