My role at Munster Golf as Sports Therapist is to ensure our golfers are achieving their full potential by utilising an evidence-based model to help these athletes to perform to there potential and continue to do so by preventing injury.
Integral to this role is the ability to effectively assess and treat injured golfers and subsequently develop and implement personalized rehabilitation programs.
I am currently utilizing Functional Movement Screening (FMS) with the Development squads firstly, identify any significant musculoskeletal imbalances, which may have a negative impact on the golfers performance and secondly; as a tool to monitor any changes in individual specific functional movements.
My role as Sports Therapist involves developing and delivering individual and team based fitness plans, as well as overseeing and managing sport scientist interns to draw up individualised performance needs analysis for all players. Central to this role is the utilisation of evidence based per iodised training plans.
There is a lot of potential to be professionally courageous and stamp my mark within this medical position which I really enjoy.
