With the Ryder Cup happening this weekend, we thought it was a good time to have a conversation about the world's most insufferable game, golf. We love golf. We are terrible at playing it, but we still love to get out there and play, even if we have to curse our way through 18 holes. All that joy and frustration got us thinking: Will Tiger Woods win another major? What are the most common injuries that plague golfers? What can the casual golfer do to keep from getting injured? 

The answers to our questions were graciously answered by our guest this week, Golf Physical Therapist, Ian Manning.  Ian is the owner of Orthocore Physical Therapy in North Kingstown, Rhode Island and is certified through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) to treat golf related injuries and to improve golf performance. He also is certified to use Dry Needling in his practice and during this episode, Ian gives us a little history about Dry Needling as well as the process he goes through to determine if someone would benefit from it. 

Here is some of Ian's background and training, taken from his Orthocore Physical Therapy wesbite:

Ian Manning graduated with his Masters degree in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University in 2004. Ian has always worked with orthopedic based injuries. Starting in school with his co-op/clinical rotations leading into his professional career as a PT. He is constantly working to continue his education through course work and staying current with research. Ian is certified through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) to treat golf related injuries and to improve golf performance.

In this week's episode, we had the fortune of speaking with Dr. Lisa Holland, PT, DPT. Lisa was so kind to take time out of her busy schedule as a physical therapist and as the "Belly Guru" to share her story with us.

A little bit about who Lisa is:

Dr. Lisa Holland is a Doctor of Physical Therapy that utilizes an integrated approach to her work.  With over 22 years of experience within the fields of physical rehabilitation, fitness and sports medicine, she has focused the last decade on mind body healing of pain and the strategic use of classical yoga, lifestyle support and health coaching.  For the past 11 years, her company Belly Guru LLC has offered a variety of cash based, primary care women's health services in a flexible private practice model that now includes professional mentoring and an online training center.   Lisa embodies the opportunity physical therapists have to expand the profession into regularly helping people overcome the biopsychosocial disability brought on by detrimental stress, unhealthy behaviors and persistent pain.
