The BIA™ Blueprint for the Special Population Golfer

The creation of the BIA™ System launched in 2009 has provided a platform where-by  BIA™ credentialed Golfing Machine Authorized  Instructors and  associated BIA™ credentialed PGA teaching professionals can design and implement customized  BIA™ Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery™ programming protocols for golfers.

Special population golfers must adapt their current functional status to all activities of daily living including golf.  The dilemma: all “golfer” stroke patterns executed must comply with the science of golf technique “laws” in order to successfully participate.  Hence, knowledge about the human body and understanding of the biomechanical alterations and impairments inherent in special population golfers returning to participation require a personalized TGM-BIA™ Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery Program™.

What should be included in a BIA Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery Program™?

Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery™ is a specialized category of TGM-BIA™ Fusion programming and should include:
  1. Golfer participant history and review which would include: pre-“rehab” level of golf proficiency, current level of golf proficiency dysfunction due to the specific chief-complaint(s), and associated areas of concern.  
  2. Review of records, reports, impairment status, guidelines, recommendations, and of course, all medical/health provider clearance for participation.
  3. GBP™ (BIA-Golf Baseline Position™) adaptive postural evaluation in comparison to normative upright standard posture evaluation.  The use of the BIA Tent Model™ in GBP™ for inspection and evaluation is strongly recommended.   BIA Swing Mapping™ is incorporated to separate effects from causes.
  4. Analysis of current stroke pattern including inspection for G.O.L.F. “first wobbly points, snares, and execution errors” is recommended.
  5. Correlation of current stroke pattern irregularities with associated biomechanical areas of aberrant or altered medical or neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions.
  6. Development of a revised lawful stroke pattern to offset the aberrant biomechanical hubs of dysfunction using the BIA Concept-Pathway-Pattern™ Process.
  7. Creation of specific technique and performance entrainment protocols, (post lesson) practice assignments, as well as methods of rehearsal and accurate pattern to pathway adherence of the new stroke pattern.   The stroke pattern (besides being lawful to G.O.L.F. science) must comply with the functional capacity and guidelines for activity participation established by all allied health providers.
  8. Video Analysis, 3-D Biomechanical Motion Analysis, along with TGM teaching and training aids.  

For Example:

A male golfer presents with a history of frozen shoulder associated with rotator cuff impingement.  The client  currently has no pain, but ROM and the displayed golf stroke central pattern is altered, aberrant, and unstable.  The client states that there is a loss of power in the swing, flight direction evidence of “pulling” the ball, and a “slice” with the driver tee shots.  He is a right-handed golfer.    

The interventions might include:
  1. Assessing scapular-humeral rhythm bilaterally, and comparing the backswing and follow-through positions for aberrant pattern flow.  
  2. Video Analysis (TGM technique analysis followed by BIA Tent Model™ performance analysis).   The BIA Video Analysis includes three views: anterior (front), lateral (down the line), and posterior (back).
  3. Posture Assessment and bilateral shoulder complex alignment check.  Comparison of Standard Upright Posture with GBP™ for adaptive postural effects and compensations is executed.   Inherent Postural make-up verses Alignment alterations and compensation issues should also be inspected throughout the entire skeletal system.
  4. Base of support and BIA Recruited Stability™ integrity should be inspected.  Docking and ground efficiency in the static state and dynamic state should be inspected.
  5. Careful attention to where along the pathway route there is a breakdown in pattern execution expression display conformity is conducted.  Where is the source of pattern disruption to the planar technique pathway routes?
  6. Correlation of these observations to the video sequence of the stroke of the golfer.
  7. Selection of revised (but golf science lawful) skeletal and functional patterns of poses that reduce, eliminate, or minimize aberrant execution and ineffective sequencing of the pose choreography should be selected.  The poses for patterning are tailored to the pre-selected alternate TGM components which will become the new technique blueprint for the Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery™ Program.
  8. Consultation and shared responsibility alliance with the allied health and exercise professionals to devise a synergistic “holistic” and complementary approach protocols for the golfer.

This TGM-BIA™ Fusion blueprint is the basis for the technique-performance contribution to the entire shared responsibility alliance with all allied professionals that benefits the golfer the most.

What this program is not:
  1. Therapy
  2. Conditioning
  3. “Golf Fitness”
  4. Medical or Chiropractic Treatment

Why is a BIA Swing Rehab and Skill Recovery Program™ needed?

Recovering post rehab golfers often have impairment and blockages in the chain of action as the result of a body that is now different than its pre-injured version.  

This program helps the impaired golfer re-learn and re-program dormant or lost skills in a manner that complies with both the correct mechanics of the swing and the current biomechanical status.
