What is TPI?
TPI stands for Titleist Performance Institute. TPI seeks to educate golf industry professionals and the playing public on the importance of the body and how it relates to the golf swing.
TPI does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. TPI believes there is one efficient way for every player to swing, and it is based on what the player can physically do.
How does a chiropractor use TPI?
In becoming certified by TPI, Dr. Emily D. Mickle learned a series of movement screens. Dr. Emily uses these movement screens to look for areas of weakness/dysfunction that could potentially affect your golf game or lead to injury. Based on the results, Dr. Emily creates a plan unique for each golfer to address one or more of the following: fitness training, physical therapy/chiropractic treatments, nutrition, and/or mental strategy.
Dr. Emily can also communicate with other TPI certified professionals regarding the information from your screens. TPI Golf Pros and TPI Fitness providers all understand the movement screens, and they can all help with different aspects of creating well balanced golfer.
