I have dealt with neck and shoulder pain for the past five years and have seen numerous doctors, clinicians and tried many therapy modalities. After hearing positive comments about Lone Peak Physical Therapy from many people in the Big Sky community, I thought it was worth a try. I was extremely impressed with the professional expertise and personal approach to diagnosing my neck pain issues. John provided a thorough assessment of my body mechanics, review of my physical activity and positive reinforcement to move forward with a plan. I felt my concerns were taken seriously, I was listened to, and immediately went away with tools (exercises) to begin my therapy program. I also found it extremely valuable to use the "Flip Videos" which allowed me to review and practice my prescribed exercises from home. I am happy to say that after several weeks of daily exercises, I am feeling consistent pain relief for the first time in five years. Thanks to John and his staff for their exceptional customer service and expertise in physical therapy and training - I have a new lease on life!
“I have never been to physical therapy like this. I came in for pain in my elbow and you are treating my whole body. It feels great.”
I came to LPPT as a 69-year-old, 7-handicap, lifetime golfer whose golf skills were deteriorating. Some of that deterioration, of course, could be attributed to the aging process, but I was convinced that even more of it was a result of lower back pain that had persisted for about a year. Fortunately, serendipity brought me to John Boersma of LPPT. John is both an avid golfer and a student of the golf swing. John specializes in the mechanics of the body. He focuses on how the body parts,i.e., bones, muscles, ligaments, joints, can work together to produce the most efficient and powerful motion. John listened to my complaints and watched me swing a golf club, and then he launched me on a series of exercises designed to reduce the stress on some areas of the body, free some underutilized areas to generate more power and generally create an understanding in me of how sound body mechanics should mesh with sound swing mechanics to produce a powerful, repeatable and pain-free golf swing -- even at age 69!
If I could start my golf life over, I would start with the combination of a good golf professional and a good physical therapist who understands the golf swing. The golf pro would have the assignment of getting me to the corrrect position to strike the golf ball. The physical therapist would have the job of getting my body to that striking position in the most efficient, powerful and relaxed manner possible.
My advice to golfers of all skill levels and ages: Get yourself to a physical therapist who understands the golf swing and its purpose. Let him help you maximize the power and efficiency you can get from your body.
