Biomechanical and Injury Prevention management

Andrea Kosa BSc. P.T., BSc. Biology Physiotherapist
·       Titleist Performance Institute Level 3 Medical Professional
·       Competitive Amateur Golfer
·       Andrea Kosa is the Physiotherapist for Golf Canada's National Developmental and Amateur Ladies Teams and has worked with the Men’s Developmental Team in 2013.  Her goal for Strive is to bring the same full body physical evaluation that she performs on the National Team Players to the Strive Program.  The initial evaluation will be performed prior to the start of the 2016-2017 Season (in September preferably) - the findings will be shared with coaches so to address each players areas of limitation.  Players in this age group can go through rapid changes in their body leading to weakness and flexibility issues that then can increase the risk of injury.  Recovery and Rehabilitation of any injury is her priority as well as navigating players and family through the medical world if needed.  After the player works on their program for 3 months a re-evaluation will take place to identify areas for progression or continued work.
Along with the evaluations: Andrea will participate and give guidance with the group in areas swing analysis, training days, and on-course practice session
***If any Strive player requires further physiotherapy intervention these can be arranged with Andrea.
