Golfers, we have a PT just for you - golf specialist and TPI Certified Medical Professional, Amanda!
Golfers are always looking to improve their swing. It could be something that hurts that is limiting your swing. Other times it could just be a mobility limitation or strength deficit contributing to an undesired outcome with your swing (i.e. uncontrolled slice).
If you want to address either of those things, Amanda can help you with that. She can work with you (or with you and your golf pro if you have one) to ensure musculoskeletal issues aren't negatively impacting your golf swing and work to fix them if they are.
As a TPI Certified Medical Professional, Amanda is versed in the Body-Swing Connection™. She has the knowledge and skills to perform a golf-specific injury assessment to determine what might have caused an injury to develop, or a wellness assessment to determine what physical limitations can be addressed in order to prevent injuries and allow for a more efficient swing.
Amanda is also trained to perform a video analysis of a golfer’s swing characteristics which helps determine the plan of action for rehabilitation. With the information gathered from the assessment and video analysis, she is then able to prescribe rehabilitation techniques and exercises to get players back on the course.

Amanda's Golf Background
Amanda was introduced to golf at a young age by her grandparents but didn’t take it seriously until high school when she tried out for the girls golf team to avoid going to PE class. What started out as a loop-hole to avoid running in PE, turned into a deep love for the sport that led her to pursue a career focused on golfers. She solidified her place on the varsity roster as a sophomore and helped her golf team make school history the following year by qualifying for the State tournament. While her passion for golf continued to grow, shoulder pain landed her in a physical therapist’s office with hopes to finish out her senior year and possibly play in college. It was in that PT office where she decided her career goal was to become a physical therapist with an emphasis in golf rehab. She ultimately decided to transition golf into a hobby and focus on school during undergrad. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bradley University a semester early. She spent 6 months traveling the world before packing her bags and moving to Nashville, TN for PT school at Belmont University. During her time at Belmont she was mentored by Dr. Michael Voight who connected her with colleagues at Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). She spent 8 weeks in Austin, TX working at 512 Physical Therapy & Golf Performance where she had the opportunity to work with golfers of all ages and abilities ranging from high school to semi-pro to 78 years old with Parkinson’s. While she was in Texas she was also the assistant coach for a high school golf team and helped many kids score their personal bests. During her final 2 clinical placements for DPT school, she became known as ‘the one to send patients who golf’ as patients were recovering from vestibular problems, broken bones, back surgeries, etc. She graduated from Belmont University with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and moved back to Nashville with her dog, Clark. In January 2020, she attended a certification course and became a TPI certified professional. When she’s not in the clinic or on the golf course you will probably see her training a future service dog with Retrieving Independence.
