The first of its kind! An essential new book for all healthcare providers treating golfers, this comprehensive text offers important information on the diagnosis and treatment of golf injuries.  Dr. Blanchard combines his unique practitioner expertise with his actual play experience as a competitive golf professional to offer readers a more complete understanding of taking care of patients who love to play golf. The Physician's Golf Injury Desk Reference  is designed to help providers link swing mechanics to injuries to help identify the root cause of an injury and to help identify if patients are at risk of injury before they even hit a golf ball. Material is presented in a concise and clear manner, with visual aide, objective chapter openers and summaries on what the reader should learn, as well as examples, boxed articles, and case studies to help illustrate the chapter concepts. This book helps teach readers how to perform a 14-point physical examination and a 3-point swing mechanics analysis, and includes correction protocols for any failed examination findings. The text also includes practical training technology from the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tour for golf fitness and conditioning for "well patients" looking to improve their game.
