The G.U.R. Program is designed to deal with golfers who need specific golf rehabilitation.
The objectives are as follows:
To provide golf specific rehabilitation information to the “baby boomer generation” and their associated injuries and pathology e.g. spinal injuries and arthritis;
To provide the international Golf Associations clear clinical pathways and rehabilitation programs to maintain attendances at golf clubs;
To provide a data base of case histories that shows restoration of function and return to golf participation;
To specifically deal with each golfer who has an injury or a pathology that restricts the ability to participate and compete in golf;
To provide educational and training for golf organizations on risk management, injury prevention and duty of care;
This information would not only be provided for senior and middle aged golfers but would also address any high risk or potential risk with juniors;
Through ongoing assessment and evaluation of these sub groups the information will provide templates and early, intermediate and late stage strategies for full golf rehabilitation and return to golf;
The G.U.R. program will integrate the golf unions, associations, coaching and sports medicine professionals to provide a holistic approach to golfers incapacitated by injury or pathology and promote world's best practice.
