The Titleist Performance Institute, headquartered in Oceanside CA, is the leading organization in golf-specific health, fitness and swing advice. It is one of the nation’s leaders in golf performance, and trains Certified TPI Golf Instructors and healthcare professionals to help you break past physical factors that limit you as a golfer. TPI has over 19,000 Certified Professionals in 63 countries, assisting players of all skill levels, and we are proud to have two at Muscle & Spine Rehabilitation Center. TPI has worked with thousands of golfers throughout its history, from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels . Through years of research and data collection, TPI has discovered how an optimally functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible.  In addition, TPI has analyzed how those physical limitations in a players body can adversely affect the golf swing and lead to potential injury.

TPI’s mission is to educate golfers and industry professionals on the Body-Swing ConnectionTM, which identifies the body’s physical limitations and how they directly correlate to their golf swing.  Participants will be taken through a series of functional tests. These tests evaluate your strength, flexibility and mobility and will provide recommendations to help maximize physical advantages unique to individual golfers, and that likely lead to a lower chance of injury.

Remember as they say at TPI, “If you don’t test, it’s just a guess”.

Will insurance cover my Golf Performance Evaluation?

It is possible if you have pain while playing golf. We will need to do a physical therapy initial evaluation first to determine the medical necessity of the golf performance evaluation. If you are not currently injured or in pain, or do not have medical insurance, we offer cash pay rates. Please contact Muscle & Spine Rehabilitation Center for details and appointment scheduling.
