Golf Performance Enhancement

Golf Performance Enhancement is a scientific, biomechanical approach to improving your body’s ability to coil and recoil, allowing you to increase head speed and swing smoother resulting in longer drives, improved control and reduced fatigue.  In addition to a better golf game, you will have less hip, back, and neck pain.


Our EXPERIENCED Physical Therapists and Certified Athletic Trainers will focus on your specific needs as determined from a comprehensive, functional orthopedic evaluation. Our staff are educated experts in the fields of Sports Kinesiology and Biomechanics. 


We then focus on teaching you specific exercises that will improve the flexibility in your spine, hips and shoulders. You will also learn exercises to help with balance and core stability all enhancing your Golf Game.


CPTI is also the most experienced clinic in Colorado using the ground breaking ATM2 method that many professional golfers have raved about.  This approach reactivates the core stabilization muscles so the nervous system does not need to compensate by recruiting the global muscles to help with spinal stabilization.  Increase in range of motion is immediate, consistent and long lasting.


Our philosophy is to evaluate your needs and teach you how to quickly and efficiently improve your biomechanics with specific exercises and activities that are tailored to you so you can continue to improve on your own.   


Sports Performance Enhancement

Having Surgery? Try Prehab 


Term used for attending physical therapy sessions for one to three sessions before your surgery. This is done so you know what to do before your surgery and are able to maximize the improvement and recovery speed post-surgery. This concept is used by all elite and professional athletes. This will allow the patient to see their athletic trainers and physical therapists before their surgery so that they know what to expect. Including pre-surgery exercise therapy improves post-surgery pain and function for the patient.​


At CPTI we will help you achieve your highest level of sports performance.  


We have worked with elite, college and professional athletes since 1979.  We have worked with the Colorado Rapids Major League Soccer Team for thirteen years.


We incorporate balance, strength training, flexibility and core stabilization exercises into a sport specific program designed for your needs and goals.  We offer rehabilitation programs for athletes of all ages and skill levels.  Whether you are a professional athlete or a recreational athlete, our skilled therapists, along with leading edge technology, can design an individualized exercise program to help you maximize your potential to excel.  


Balance training and core stabilization control have become an essential tool in all sports training enhancement programs.  If you can do the sport specific task in challenging and unstable conditions, it becomes much easier to do it in the sports environment.  At our facility we have specialized equipment to help you stay in the game.  We have a variety of performance equipment for home use so that you can continue to practice and improve on your own.  


Ankle Injuries

The most under treated orthopedic injury –Protect “Your Foundation’ treat your ankle injury.


Facts


  • 25,000 ankle sprains occur in the United States – Daily!!
  • Ankle Sprains represent 25% of all sports injuries
  • “High” ankle sprains account for up to 18% of all ankle sprains
  • “High” ankle sprains are often under-diagnosed


Physical Therapy


  • Supervised rehabilitation has been shown to substantially reduce the number of recurrent ankle sprains
  • Balance exercises and peroneal strengthening can restore functional stability to a mechanically unstable ankle (Mascaro et al. Orthop Clin North Am 1994)
  • Failure to adequately rehabilitate damaged proprioceptive fibers in the ankle capsule and ligaments may lead to functional ankle instability (Frey et al. Foot & Ankle ICL 2009)
  • Proprioceptive deficits occur after ankle sprain and may persist


Shoulder Pain in the Overhead Throwing Athlete

Act of throwing a baseball is one of the fastest and most violent maneuvers to which any joint in the body is subjected.  


MRI Findings in Asymptomatic Throwing Athletes


  • Miniaci et al. (2002)
  • Mean Age = 18-22 yrs
  • Partial Rotator Cuff Tear = 86%
  • Labral Pathology = 79%
  • Acromioclavicular Joint Pathology = 36%


Rotator Cuff


  • A properly functioning and well-conditioned Rotator Cuff  is essential to withstand the forces of the normal throwing motion
  • Fatigue failure and degenerative changes of the Rotator Cuff are more common than an acute event
  • Early recognition and conservative treatment is key to a successful outcome


Treatment of Micro-Instability


  • >90% of patients respond to
  • Scapular control exercises
  • Rotator Cuff strengthening
  • Activity modification


GIRD – Glenohumeral Internal Rotation Deficit


Symptomatic throwers often demonstrate a significant loss in internal rotation greater than the compensatory gain in external rotation. This pathologic sequence of events in patients with GIRD can result in:


  • Type II Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior tear (SLAP)
  • Type VIII SLAP
  • Type II with posterior labral extension



Burkhart et al. Arthroscopy (2003)


  • Mainstay of treatment for GIRD is early, accurate recognition and referral to formal physical therapy
  • 90% of throwers with symptomatic GIRD will respond to a posteroinferior capsular stretching program


“SICK” Scapula


  • Scapular Malposition
  • Inferior Medial Scapular Winging
  • Coracoid Tenderness
  • Scapular Dyskinesis
  • Weakness in the legs, hips and core stability…
  • Results in the torso being forced to compensate which leads to serratus anterior dysfunction…
  • Chain of events moves the scapula to a position that can lead to glenohumeral joint pathology. 


Correct diagnosis, followed by rotator cuff and periscapular muscle rehab and reeducation:


  • Can allow rapid return to sport
  • Will require maintenance program to prevent recurrence


Thoracic Outlet Syndrome


  • Excessive muscle development or scapular depression from inadequate scapular muscle stabilization
  • Adson, Roos and Wright Tests
  • Initial treatment is non-operative
  • Rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy
  • Conservative treatment successful 90% of the time
