Rickie Fowler "How I Fixed my Swing at the Gym" 

Excerpt from Golf Digest Article: 
I'm really proud of these pictures. The "good" positions are the result of a fairly intense rehab project I started last fall after hurting my back. I know what some of you are probably thinking: How does a 24-year-old have back problems? Talk to me when you're my age, kid. Well, if you play a lot of golf, a bad swing habit will exact a physical toll no matter your age or fitness level. In my case, I was placing extreme pressure on my lower spine from rotating my hips too much. This is a common cause of bad backs--and bad shots--for golfers of all levels. In addition to resting, I worked with my trainer, on strengthening the weaker lower-body muscles that contributed to my overactive hips and back pain. Because I've spent more time fixing my swing at the gym than on the range, I'm confident the results will be lasting.

Unfortunately, low back pain is all too common in golfers, both pro and amateur.  Movement’s Medical Golf Evaluation & Human Performance Enhancement system was developed to also remedy this type of issue.  The concept is simple: we first identify problems within the golf swing via video analysis.  How the body moves outside the swing is then analyzed--a comprehensive look at mobility versus strength from head to toe.  Lastly, movement patterns related to the golf swing deemed broken are fixed.  Not surprisingly, pain goes out the window and so do bad shots!
