“I have patients come in with hip injuries, knee replacements, ankle problems, balance problems…the gamut,” says Morris, who is an avid golfer himself. “After doing a screening and analysis, I can usually find what the problem is right away. And I can then work with them to address that need.”
Strength and flexibility exercises, as well as training on proper form, can help golfers perform more efficiently on the course, reducing their risk of injury. Morris relies on his knowledge of the golf game and his expertise as an exercise physiologist to address the specific needs of golfers — a handy skillset to have in the golf capital of the Southeast.
“Golf instructors can help with things like form, but they don’t help the players with exercises,” he says. “I can design an exercise regimen that addresses their physiological issues, but is also ideal for them as golfers.”
