Intermediate Training


You do not have to play golf to treat patients who play golf. This course is designed to teach you everything you need to know. The following is a summary of topics covered in Intermediate Training:

Barriers to Performance: There are 4 categories of performance barriers. You will be taught how to help your patient’s identify their barriers. You will learn the treatment and training protocols that will give your patients the opportunity to take their game to the next level.

Strength and Power: Everyone who plays golf would like to hit the ball further. To hit the ball further requires your patients to generate more club head speed. You will learn Dr. Blanchard’s 7-point plan for generating more club head speed to hit longer more powerful golf shots.

Environ-Mental Issues: There are environ-mental barriers (your patients might be allergic to the pesticides/flora and fauna on any given golf course) that will restrict motor movement. There are emotional barriers (stress will restrict the smooth motor movement needed to execute a good golf swing). Learn to work with your patients who love golf to identify, and treat environ-mental issues.

Case Studies: Intermediate Training includes numerous case studies designed to challenge your growing expertise using everything you have learned from the combined courses.

Advanced Training

Instructor: Jeff Blanchard


Advanced Training
Continuing education credit (CE) is provided by New York Chiropractic College (NYCC)*

To become Golf Injury Certified you will need to complete the Advanced Training seminar and pass the written Certification Examination. The content for the Advanced Training seminar was taped from a live, 3-Day Advanced Training seminar. I have selected 8-hours of video for you to watch and a seminar workbook has been provided for you to take notes as you follow along.

The Advanced Training seminar has been designed for the doctor who wants to establish and grow a referral relationship with the PGA instructors in their community. The PGA instructors are working with hundreds of golf students who are not physically fit or conditioned to play golf. It is difficult for instructors to teach golf to students who present for lessons with postural instability, structural weakness and poor flexibility. Before long, students become frustrated and perhaps injured.

“I’ve been teaching golf for more than 20 years. I can honestly say that lack of proper golf-specific fitness and conditioning has been responsible of over 50% of every poor golf swing.”

Gary G. Setting, PGA
