We’re proud to offer our physiotherapy service to members of Blankney Golf Club near Lincoln. Whether you’re new to the game or have been playing for years, many golfers experience pain or discomfort in their shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands. This is often due to an issue with specific muscle strength and/or flexibility, so having efficient and easy access to an experienced Physiotherapist, is a real benefit for members.

We know that the way you swing a golf club is dependent on how your body moves. Whether you have an acute or chronic injury or are struggling to improve your swing, we provide tailored advice and treatment to help you return to the golf course pain-free, stronger and performing better.

Physiotherapy appointments are available on Wednesdays at Blankney Golf club or at the Nettleham clinic on all other days of the week. Pre-booking required and is quick and simple through our easy online booking system, or you’re welcome to call to arrange.

Prior to your initial consultation, you will be emailed an intake form to fill in. This will help us to understand what you would like help with prior to the session and means we have more time for a thorough assessment when you arrive to help diagnose the issue. We will put together a plan to reach your goals, and start the program straight away. It will usually include a combination of a movement and exercise program, advice and education (to ensure you remain the expert of your body) and hands-on therapy if needed.

Physiotherapy is a team effort between you and the therapist you’re working with, so the more you learn in the clinic room, the more you can replicate it on your own outside the room – where the real lasting change happens! We’re always here to help, but want you to feel empowered and able to self-manage as much as possible.

After the initial assessment, depending on what you and your therapist think would work best for you, you can arrange for further treatments to review your progress.

To give you the best possible chance of achieving the results you want, you will need to practice the advice and follow the program(s). This will also reduce the risk of complications or re-occurrence of an injury or issue, so you can get on with playing the game you enjoy without feeling like you’re being held back by an injury.

Our aim is to help you achieve positive changes as soon as possible. While clients often report these after 1-2 sessions, many will see lasting improvements over 4-6 sessions. There’s no contract and we would much prefer that you only book in if you feel there’s more improvement to be made or would like a review to check in on progress. When a client feels they have achieved what they wanted and are happy to self manage, we’re over the moon! If in the future you would like to check-in or have something else to work on, just book in. We don’t work on ‘blocks’ of therapy because each person’s recovery and response to treatment is unique to them and their situation. 

Our ultimate aim is to ensure that your physiotherapy is efficient and effective, so you can feel you are playing your best game possible.

In most cases a referral from a GP is not required, so you can make an appointment with us directly. The only caveats to this is if your health insurance provider requires a referral to cover your claim, or if you have a specific medical condition that needs a medical professionals clearance before undergoing physiotherapy – an example of this would be recovering from a very recent fracture.

If you’re unsure whether you need a referral, you’re welcome to get in touch to talk it through. Our primary goal is to make your path to recovery as smooth and straightforward as possible.

At Blankneys, the initial assessment is designed to be comprehensive and thorough, to help diagnose and agree what treatment would be best to help. When an appointment is booked, you will be emailed a form to fill out prior to your assessment allowing the session to be as focused and efficient as possible during the 30 minutes.

After this you may choose to book a 30 minute follow-up appointment to review progress, make appropriate adjustments to the exercise program, and continue with your personalised your treatment plan with appropriate interventions such as manual therapy and soft tissue techniques.

It’s best to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that you can move easily in and that the physiotherapist access and assess the area of your body that requires treatment.

For instance, if you’re attending a session for a knee issue, wearing shorts would be ideal. For upper body issues, a sleeveless top is often a good choice. Depending on the nature of your treatment, you may be doing exercises or stretches, so it’s essential to wear something you can move freely in.

As for footwear – trainers or other comfortable, closed-toe shoes are typically recommended if your treatment involves standing or walking exercises. Please avoid wearing jewellery near the area being treated, if you have long hair you may find it useful to tie it back.

Please remember that your comfort is paramount during your physiotherapy sessions, and we want to ensure your clothing helps rather than hinders your treatment.
