Kroon Biokinetics specializes in golf evaluations to improve your golf swing & avoid or rehabilitate an injury. Fundamental to normal joint function is stability. When an injury occurs, normal joint stability is compromised and full recovery threatened unless the stability is restored. Joint stability is provided by static and dynamic factors. Static stability is provided by the inert structures in the shoulder (joint capsule, ligaments and glenoid labrum). Dynamic stability is the responsibility of the nerves and muscles, providing appropriate stimuli to the central nervous system for balanced muscle activity. When the joints ligaments are injured, the nerves located in those ligaments are unable to provide adequate stimuli creating inappropriate muscle responses. These conditions set up a continuous injury cycle in which continued dynamic and static instability causes functional instability. The cycle continues and leads to progressive injury
Dynamic instability results if muscles surrounding the shoulder are imbalanced. If the agonist and antagonist groups are unbalanced, there is a loss of proprioceptive and kinesthetic control, leading to dynamic instability. Muscle imbalance, if not corrected, can be the primary cause of multiple injuries such as shoulder, back and neck etc. Often, playing golf can lead to muscle imbalances, which could lead to dynamic instability resulting in an injury or decrease in performance.
The Kroon Biokinetics is able to brake this cycle by designing a rehabilitation program to restore dynamic instability. Rehabilitation programs include reeducation of neuromuscular system and exercises or reestablish balance between agonist and antagonist muscles.
The execution of a perfect golf swing depends on the ability of the shoulder muscles to stabilize the shoulder joint during the swing motion. Muscle strength & control is therefore crucial as the scapular muscles serves as a platform for shoulder movement during all four phases of your golf swing.
